Free Budget Printables-
First, is the weekly/biweekly or monthly budget planner page. You can choose which sheet you prefer, depending on your paycheck frequency. This is your main budget tracker sheet that is included and it provides a great budget overview. It has space for you to track your total income, your bills due, monthly expenses, and savings and debt goals. Use this free budget worksheet to plan your personal budget every month.
Next, the monthly expense tracker, or expenses log, is a sheet just for tracking your expenses on a monthly basis. Use a new sheet each month and track everything you spend to know exactly where your money has gone. There are lots of lines if you need them, and you can also print more than one sheet if you find that necessary to track all of your spending.
The monthly bill checklist will help you keep track of your monthly bills that are paid and make sure nothing slips through the cracks. This can help you save money by avoiding late fees or other penalties for paying late. I know that we have a lot of different due dates, and it can be hard to keep track, but this sheet makes it easy.
The finance calendar is a great way to have a monthly overview of when you plan to pay your bills, so you know what to expect each week. Knowing when you want to pay each bill is an important part of the budgeting process. This helps you to space out when things are to be paid so that you don’t have most of your bills due at the beginning of the month, or so that if you do, you can plan for it!
HINT: If you do find that you have a lot of bills stacked on one end of the month, you can call your creditors, or the companies you pay to, to see if it is possible to change your due dates. Or, get in the habit of paying certain things a week or two ahead so that they don’t pile up all at once.
The next page I included was a medical expenses tracker. This was so helpful for me when my son was younger and we had a lot of different expenses going on. It can be important to track these, even if you don’t necessarily have a lot of health issues, because it helps when it comes time to deal with insurance, or at tax time!
Use the yearly expenses page to plan for variable expenses that might sneak up on you- saving for Christmas or birthdays is a great example of this. One of the best things you can do for your budget is to plan ahead and get prepared. It makes you able to space out saving up for bigger expenses. One that always sneaks up on me is car tags and taxes! Unlike the car payment that comes each month, we pay these once per year, and if I don’t plan for it, it ends up being a big unexpected expense. I don’t usually know the actual amount until a month or so before they are due, but I can estimate and have the majority saved before the time comes.
Next, use the donations log to keep track of any donations you make throughout the year so that you can turn those in at tax time, as well.
Now, for savings, let’s start with our savings goal worksheet. This sheet helps you to track long-term expenses that you want to save for. You can choose your goal- say, a vacation, or a down payment on a new home, and you can plan your week by week (or month by month) savings goals for that purpose, and keep track of your progress as you go!
Then, there is the savings tracker. Here you can keep up with your deposits into your savings accounts, and your running totals on those accounts.
For debt, we’ll start with the debt tracker. This one is similar to the one for savings, only you keep track of the payments you are making towards debt and you can watch those balances shrink!
Finally, there is a debt management worksheet that gives you a place to track all of your debts in an overview, and see how much money you owe and recent payments made in one place.
Finally, the last page in our free printable budget worksheets is a password keeper can help you deal with all of your online bill pay log-ins!
These free printable budgeting worksheets are a great way for you to start keeping track of your finances. I know of some of the best budgeting apps, but for me it is so powerful to see things written down. A great place to keep these printables would be in your home management binder, or just on a clipboard, or in the budgeting section of your planner. Whatever budgeting method you use, these printables sure to be a huge help. There is even a cover page included in this DIY free printable budget binder. Keep track of your long term and short term finances with the pages included.
