Finally, an easy-to-use monthly budget tool.

Free monthly budget tool

You've heard it a thousand times—creating a monthly budget is the BEST way to take control of your money.

It's true! It feels liberating to know that you can comfortably splurge on guacamole or go to a nice brunch with your friends and family.

Not having a budget can feel overwhelming. Am I saving enough? Will I be able to afford a vacation this year?

Building a budget allows you to answer the question, "where is all my money going?"

And best of all, it gives you permission to spend your money. Because you KNOW that you can afford that extra guacamole while still hitting your saving goals.

But most budget tools are complicated, tedious, or unhelpful.

Building a budget might not be the most fun thing to do. But it doesn't have to be difficult.

If you know how to use a keyboard, you can use my budget tool. It's really that simple. And if you have any questions along the way (no matter how small), I'm only a quick email away.

This budget tool is the exact spreadsheet that I have used to save nearly 50% of my income every year since I started working. It really works.

The spreadsheet comes pre-populated with an example budget. All you have to do is type in your income and expenses. Simple!
