The purpose of this template is to help you define a monthly budget and
compare your budget to your actual income and expenses.

This worksheet uses a separate Excel Table for each major Budget
category. This allows you to insert and delete sub-categories easily.

Step 1 Update Budget Categories

You can modify the sub-categories within each table, but if you remove
an entire major category, then you will need to modify the formulas in
the Budget Summary table.

Step 2 Enter Budget Amounts

Enter values in the Budget column within each table.

If you are not sure how to set up your budget, read the article "How to
Make a Budget with a Spreadsheet" listed below.

Step 3 Enter Actual Amounts

You can either update the worksheet throughout the month, or wait until
the end of the month to enter the actual income and expenses.

Difference Column
The cells in the Difference column use conditional formatting to make
negative numbers red. If you spend more than you budgeted, the
Difference between the Projected and Actual values will be negative,
and if your Actual income is less than your Projected income, the
Difference will be a negative number.

Budget Summary
The Monthly Budget Summary table totals up all your income and
expenses and calculates the Net as Income minus Expenses. If your
Net is negative, that means you have overspent your monthly budget.
