I’ve been meaning to share my budget spreadsheet with you for at least a year. I know you can get a free budget spreadsheet on almost every personal finance blog out there these days, which is great, but guess what — everyone budgets differently. We all pretty much use the same principles to create our budgets, but not one budget is the same.
The big reason I wanted to share my budget spreadsheet with you is because I’ve been using this template for over 6 years now — and it works.
The first version I created was when I was broke and living on my own for the first time in my life. I was 24 and my annual salary was $30,000. Sometimes I just can’t wrap my head around how I was able to pay rent, feed myself, have fun and save up $8,000 that first year, but the truth is I owe everything to my budget. And my side hustle as a teleprompter operator, that definitely helped!
Over the years my budget has evolved, and the free budget spreadsheet I’m sharing with you is by far the most user-friendly version I’ve ever created. And because I’m a bit of a nerd and want to do more stuff on YouTube, I’ve created a video tutorial on how to use my budget spreadsheet.
But if you still have any questions, either shoot me an email or comment on this blog post.
