Behold the Personal Finance Budget Spreadsheet with 12 Tabs
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Personal Finance
From Business Insider and Budgets Are Sexy:
The author Budgets Are Sexy says:
This spreadsheet slowly evolved over the last 6 years. At first it was just a budget template. Now it is a massive workbook that has all of my critical updated information, and is extremely useful to me when making financial decisions.
I started out just wanting to make decisions wisely. Now I open my dashboard and strive to increase my net worth monthly, and make decisions that help it increase faster, instead of only making decisions based on whether I can fit things into my budget or not.
In case you were wondering where to download the spreadsheet:
EDITOR’S NOTE: I asked our friend here if he could share the template with us in case anyone wants to try it out, but he wasn’t 100% comfortable with it as there was too much sensitive info to be scrubbed off. He did, however, send over a revised template that you can use if you want to give that one a shot! You can download it here :) Though he recommends building one from scratch so you can customize it to your liking. (I do too, however, it can also help starting with a base to work off… That’s how I ended up with my financial snapshot/budget I use, which you can find here, as well as a handful of others since I know you’re now completely turned on, haha… Good luck!

Someone has been continuing to research budgets! Are you looking to tighten the belt, Adam? I have become one of those quite frugal people... I feel like cutting costs can be more productive than planning spending :)
A penny saved is a penny earned, right?
Yes I'm tightening the belt but I was also curious to know what best practices are.
