Personal Budget Spreadsheet Tips:
- Remember to make budgeting as simple as possible. You will not keep with your financial plan if you dread it. Simply work on your budget spreadsheet for 15-30 minutes on a weekly or a bi-monthly basis depending on your rotation of income.
- If you get frustrated–stop! When you bring frustration into any activity you will always associate that activity with failure or anger. Take a breather when you need too. Don’t make budgeting into an emergency that must get done now! Remember, emergencies consist of bear attacks and fires not filling out a budget spreadsheet.
- Make budgeting a fun ritual and you will keep up with it. Perhaps every time you work on your budget spreadsheet you put on your favorite music and drink a cup of coffee or tea. Keep it relaxing and fun and there is no telling what you will accomplish with your money.
