Use A Spreadsheet To Track Your Budget And Spending!

This Sparked Me!

If you create a spreadsheet on your computer, you can track your spending from month to month and create charts that could help you better see how your spending habits change over time. This is also a great way to keep track of balances on credit cards if you are working on clearing up credit debt!

    I said last week that I was going to try & create a financial spreadsheet since I have a home computer. I know that will help me out alot with finances.

Also, I discovered SparkSavings.......Another great SP website. They have great budgeting tools & tracking tools. SP is there all the way, weight loss & finances. Can't get any better.

    I agree with this totally! I'm a "numbers" person, but you don't have to be one to do this. I'm so organized with my finances due to my spreadsheet and I've convinced my sister and some friends to do the same. You know where your money is going and where you went wrong, in order to prevent it in the future!
