I have had an infatuation with Excel since I first learned how to use it in 2002. Over time, as my skills became refined, and I became more comfortable with the shortcuts and potential that excel offered me, I fell in love. Even when Excel changed (new versions and then re-learning shortcuts on the mac versus the PC), and our relationship became a challenge to maintain, I endured. Persevered. Held on. For better or for worse.
And for the record, I am still constantly amazed by what Excel can do for me.
Budget. Organize. Sort. Group. Wrap Text Copy and Paste. Transpose.
So I thought I'd share some of the wonders of Excel and offer a basic budget template for a family. I included tithing at the top which is how we Momos prioritize and budget. The spreadsheet is pretty self explanatory, but I also included commentary to help guide users along. Like any template, you can modify it and use it as you please. Have fun like I do!
