Your savings plan, front and center

Keep budget planning simple
Start each month by making a plan, and end it by seeing your success. The template gives you places to record your monthly savings goal, starting balance, and ending balance.
Track your income and expenses
Observing how you spend money can be an eye-opener that helps you save more. Add your wages and other income in the spaces provided. At the end of the month, write down what you spent on rent, groceries, eating out, etc.
Compare expectations with reality
See how well your projections reflect your real-life spending. For each expense, fill in what you plan to spend in the “expected” column. When your spending is done for the month, fill in the “actual” and “difference” columns to see if you’re staying on-budget.
Refine your plan
Use the “notes” section for each expense row to reflect on your progress for the month. There’s also a section for your notes in the overview at the top of the worksheet that you can use to jot down insights and tweak your plans as needed.
