    Hi guys

    I need to make a budget planner to help with my finances & to show what exactly needs to be paid weekly/monthly etc

    I've looked online & they are way too complicated or are in dollars lol

    All I want is something that I put in my income from my wages, tax credits, child benefit & what H is giving me at the moment.

    I then want to put which bills are paid weekly & which are monthly. I want it to keep me straight on my bills so as to not forget any as some I've got arrears on & I'm on payment plans which I mustn't break.

    I'd like it to calculate how much I've left etc.

    Does any of you do it like this? If so can you send me a blank copy? Or if you know a website with an easy one I can download I'd be so grateful.

    With everything going on I think if I print a copy I can then make sure everything is paid on time & see how much money I've left (if any lol)

    Thanks guys

    Hi hun. I use a spreadsheet which details everything coming in & everythig going out. What date it goes out in the month etc. I also get it to figure out how much is left once everything is paid out, and therefore how much i have each week.
    I will send you it tomorrow when i get into the office. You will need excel for it to work.

    I also use a spreadsheet which calculates how much is left at the end of the month.

    I've now introduced my daughter to it, at first she was a bit dubious but now loves it as she knows exactly what is left to spend each week/month.

    Hi Ladies

    Here's the budget calculator I use. Hope it helps x

    You just need to input in Column B the amounts for each line, then it will total the amount that you need to pay out. In B17-19 input your income, and it will total that as well. Then B23 is the amount you have left, and B27 is now much that gives you a week.
    If you write Yes in Column D when you've paid something and it will calculate how much is left to pay as well so you can keep track.

    You can add new lines in if needed, you just need to double click in the total boxes after you have so it will include them in the totals.

    Hi there,

    I've tried to open the file and it says you need updated permission, and it prompts the user to email you, so I've just sent you an email!

    Okay - makes sense - i have it locked so no one at work can open it! Thought by renaming it would stop that but obviously not. Will redo tomorow.

    If anyone wants it can you
    PM me your email address as i can't
    Upload a excel file on here & zip files are rubbish!
