FREE Printable Budget Worksheets
Well, here we are… at the start of another new year. Did you make a New Year’s resolution? According to Huffington Post the top 6 New Year’s resolutions are:
- Lose weight
- Get organized
- Learn to say “No”
- Travel more
- Spend more time with family and friends
- Learn a new skill or take up a new hobby
And while I’m not knocking those (in fact, they seem like great goals to have!), I can’t help wondering where the resolution to take control of your finances or save more money is. Since roughly 34% of Americans have ZERO dollars in savings, resolutions for financial betterment seem like they would be pretty appropriate (source: CNBC). (Oh, and using these free printable budget worksheets to take control of your finances is way easier than hitting the gym!)
Using budget worksheet templates (like those that I’m about to share with you), is an easy first step on the path to financial security and increased savings. So, this year, I’m proposing that you make a few resolutions you can actually stick to:
- Use these free printable budget planners to understand exactly where your money goes. I assure you Bigfoot isn’t sneaking into your home late at night and using your credit card to purchase designer heels. 😉
- Set realistic financial goals that your family can work towards. These goals can be either short term (such as establishing a $1,000 emergency fund) or long term (such as saving for the little one’s college tuition).
- Use these budget worksheet templates to find ways you can save money and achieve your goals. This does not mean you have to give up every fun thing in your life. Nope, you can still live a rich life on a budget. Remember every penny adds up; saving just $50 a month will net you $600 a year!
My eBook, Secrets of a Successful Family CFO, dives deeper into all three of these resolutions, so if you’re serious about changing your financial future you should check it out. However, as I said above, simply getting started with these free monthly budget worksheets can work wonders for your finances.
There are budget worksheets online for just about everything, and the free printable budget worksheets I’m about to share with you go above and beyond your standard monthly household budget worksheet. In the spirit of building healthy financial habits, I think it’s important to use a budget worksheet (Excel or PDF file) that fits the occasion. After all, you wouldn’t wear a bikini to a black-tie dinner, right? The free printable budget planners I’m going to share with you today include a:
- Monthly household budget worksheet

- Printable budget worksheet for events
Download all of these budget worksheets Excel and/or PDF files and use them as needed!
Note: The budget worksheet Excel files have built in functions. For example, the free monthly budget worksheet automatically adds up income and expenses.
