Budgeting Worksheet Tip #3: Your Personal Cash Flow Analysis A fully functional budgeting worksheet should calculate your monthly cash flow analysis so that you can determine if you are overspending based on your income on a monthly basis. In order to determine your cash flow for the month, you will need to provide your monthly income information. A good worksheet should do all the math for you, generate a meaningful chart or two so that you can quickly see the areas in your budget that need to be improved upon. If you are over spending, you will need to adjust. If you are under spending, start saving towards your goals!
Budgeting Worksheet Tip #5: Goals_Based Most budgeting programs don't accommodate for your financial goals, they simply look back at the previous month to help you determine your spend for the current month. That is not good budgeting. If you have a cash flow problem, then it will just perpetuate into future months and you won't even realize it's happening. Furthermore, you are not creating a plan to achieve your goals. An excellent budgeting worksheet will accommodate for your financial goals and help you determine what you can afford or what it will take to meet those goals. It will take into account your income, current debt, expenses and savings to help you generate a plan to meet your goals.
