Budgeting Tools

One does not become wise by knowing all the answers but by asking the right questions - Anon

Download the simple spreadsheets and get started to find out the

Who, What, When, Where, Why & How 

of your finances. 

Who, What, When, Where, Why & How are basic questions in information-gathering. Answers to these questions help you discover your whole story.

Budget Sheets

A budget sheet will give you a clear view of the big picture.  These are the tools that take into account all income & expenses. 

Together the Budget Sheet and the Debt Schedule are the fundamental tools of budgeting.

These two sheets, when completed, will show your current financial position.

  • Who do I have to pay?

  • What are my priorities?

  • When is it due?

Spending Plans

A Spending plan (or cash flow) is a practical tool that makes your budget come to life.

This planner allows you to plan from payday to payday so that you can be confident of what you can (& can't) afford. A Spending Plan allows you to forecast your future spending and monitor it in real-time. 

And, when additional expenses pop up, you are able to test out adjustments on the planner to protect essentials and priorities. 

  • Who do I have to pay?

  • What are my priorities?

  • When are my bills due?

  • Where can I make savings?

  • Why do I need this?

  • How will I make it work?
