Excel Geek

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!

This is awesome! I took an excel class in college, but I feel like I've definitely forgotten a lot!
