How to Use the December Holiday Budget
To begin, enter your entire monthly income into the first table, labeled “Monthly Income”. This section provides you with both a place for your main income and a space for any extra income you may be expecting. This can include anything from a spouse’s income to your holiday bonus.
The next step is pretty intuitive. The “Monthly Expenses” section is where you will enter every item you want to list for your purchases this month. Start with your recurring expenses, such as rent, mortgage, car payment, etc. Then you can enter your holiday expenses.
The Holiday Budget gives you some common examples of expenditures, but you can change these by clicking inside the cell and typing your new item. This way, you can include a space for gifts, party supplies, or anything else you might buy this year!
Once you have completed entering your items into these two tables, you’ll notice that the budget automatically calculates the total amount of your expenses as well as the difference between that figure and your income. You will also receive a helpful bar graph and percentage bar, located at the top of your screen.
Save your time and your wallet from needless spending this year!
