- FLOP (Financial Life on One Page) – Basically my balance sheet to calculate my Net Worth, keeps track of account numbers, and other information about all my financial accounts.
A reader recently asked me if I knew of any good and free budgeting spreadsheets. Personally, I love Excel and get a kick out of building spreadsheets, but I know not everyone is as interested in that as I am. 😉But whether you like to create spreadsheets or just like to use them, we have a lot of good options for you! Each one of the sheets below are free and are designed to be used with Excel, but will more than likely work if you use OpenOffice (basically a free version of Microsoft Office). Some may also work with Google Docs, but I have had bad luck with some of my imports into Google Docs. Each of the budgeting sheets below have their own strengths and weaknesses, so give try them out, see what works, and make tweaks and changes if necessary. If you have a spreadsheet that you have built or have found (that is free to distribute) please provide a link to it in the comments below. free demo, but the full-version is $15.But if you don’t have the cash to spare, don’t fret, we have more than 10 other great spreadsheets below that won’t cost you a dime. And since we are talking about free spreadsheets, I will tell you about one I built and use. It isn’t necessarily for budgeting, but it really helps keep our finances organized.
