Savings and Spending for 2012

Standard

 

I have a love affair with spreadsheets ( nerdy I know ) but I thought what better way to help you guys out than to make one that will help!!

I am planning on using this to keep track of my spending (good, bad and ugly) so I can try to get control of my spending. For the first ever we are planning on taking 2 vacations never year, one to California to vist family and one to Orlando to head to Disney World!! So saving is going to be extremely important!!

This what it looks like follow the link below and download the spreadsheet and then click enable editing to be able to enter in your own information. If you have any question please send me and email and I will try to help you out!

 

Good luck to all of us J
