Buying the house... budgeting those expenses!

>> 7.30.2009

As I mentioned the other day, I did some very necessasary prioritizing on my home projects. Of course, I can't do everything on the list right away, so I created a budget sheet to help myself track the expenses. I plan on pushing on until my (budgeted) well runs dry!


Here are some super squished views of what my sheet looks like. Sorry, it's a pretty large sheet.


All I did was add in my over-all budget on the far right hand side under "budgeted" then fill in the rooms of my house, the projects I wanted to do, and the amount of money I want to spend. Of course, I added in some formatting so that the "flex" and "total remain" fields will change as I fill in my expenses. It's very similar to my monthly budget sheet. Which you can download here.


If you're in need of a home renovation sheet, you can download the excel sheet here (the first tab has a copy of mine and the second tab has a blank sheet).

To download:
1. click on the link above
2. chose "edit this page" in the bottom lefthand corner
3. go to "file" --> "export"
4. chose ".xls" and "save"
