Monthly Budget Accounting (12 per year)
Each month, you will want to compare the amount you budgeted for each category with the amount spent. This will help you make any needed adjustments for the following month, as well as recognize any patterns you may have in overspending or places you could save more money.
Some categories only have one expense per month, such as rent/mortgage. In these cases, you will not need to track leftover amounts in the budget, since they are typically a fixed amount. You can track the entire year’s mortgage on this page instead of printing an entire page for just one expense.
Monthly Tracking (12 per category per year)
Print one page per category every month. At the top, there is space to put the starting balance for that category. Every time you make a purchase or pay a bill, enter the expense and calculate the new balance remaining in the category’s allotted budget.
