Making a Personal Budget- Google Docs

Posted in online tools, recommendations tagged , , , , at 12:13 pm by silversprung

Now that we have a home, our budget will change from “saving for a house” to “saving for our house.” Okay, that doesn’t seem that different when I type it, out, but all of a sudden, we are going to have brand new expenses we’ve never had before. I like to be organized (and frankly, just like organizing data) so I’ve been trolling the Internet for a simple personal budget tool.

The winner for me was a Google Doc template. If you establish a gmail email account, you have access to a wide array of Google Docs that are stored online and can be shared between different users (for example, silversprung spouse can make changes and save, I can do the same.)

Check out the template after the jump:Here are all the googledoc budget templates: http://docs.google.com/templates?q=budget&category=14&sort=users&view=public&utm_source=en-lp-finance&utm_medium=lp&utm_campaign=en

And here is the Personal Budget I really liked: http://docs.google.com/previewtemplate?id=0As3tAuweYU9QcHlVM3hrY2tocEkzUWVjVVlqUUdfTUE&mode=public

Everything is customizable and it adds everything for you. Perfect.
