A personal finance spreadsheet is an excellent way to organize your finances and track your progress toward financial independence. One of the most common mistakes made by young people starting out in adult life is procrastinating and not getting their financial information organized. Most people start off with a very basic spreadsheet that has nothing more than a list of income and expenses, no subcategories, no cell dividers, and very little other functionality. As they get further into their new lives, they add more categories and enter more income and expenses. What they do not realize is that to really understand and improve their financial situation, they need to use a spreadsheet to breakdown their financial data and track progress as they move toward financial independence.
To get started you should find a good financial spreadsheet template. There are hundreds of different financial spreadsheets available online. If you type in "financial spreadsheet template" in any search engine you will get thousands of results. Find the financial spreadsheet template that best meets your needs and then download it to your computer. Remember that you must have your spreadsheet downloaded to your computer in order to be able to use it; if you try to access it from your computer without it being downloaded, then you will not be able to work on it.
The first thing that the spreadsheet will do is create a financial statement for you. You will see many different formats of financial statements so make sure that you choose the one that best suits you. Most financial statements only have one column where the income statement appears and there may be separate columns for savings, investments, and spending. Most financial statements also include a top line that represents the gross income at the top of the financial statement and a bottom line representing net income at the bottom of the financial statement.
Once you have downloaded your personal finance spreadsheet template, you need to open it in Microsoft Excel. In Excel, navigate to File > Import. In the Import folder, click on the option called Import External Financial Statements and name your spreadsheet after the name of the company that you are opening it with. Once you have saved your spreadsheet, it will be available to be used in Excel. Now that you have an Excel document, you need to begin working on your financial statements. Double-click on the personal finance spreadsheet and a new document will appear.
Now that you have an existing spreadsheet, you will be able to begin working on it. You can do anything that you want to the financial statements; you can add additional columns, change the formatting, and more. When you are done with the financial statement, you will be able to view it in Excel. If you would like to have a copy of the financial statements, you can just save it to your hard drive.
Open the personal finance spreadsheet in Excel and then begin typing. You can type in the gross income, any expenses that were incurred, the gross amount that you expect to make in a year, and other financial information. If you would like to add another line item to the personal finance spreadsheet, you can do so by simply clicking on the "add" button on the top right corner of the worksheet. You can add as many lines as you want to the spreadsheet. This way you will be able to manage your personal finance more efficiently.
You can also add a personal financial statement to your portfolio. For example, if you have investments in mutual funds or stocks, you can include those details in your portfolio statement. It will give your more accurate representation of your risk tolerance and the amount of money you would invest in different areas. It is also easier to manage an entire portfolio at once. Instead of having to open a new worksheet in Excel to track your investments, you can just pull out your current portfolio statement to display your current financial situation.
