Every family, no matter how big or small, has a budget to stick to. Using a free excel template, one can keep his or her family to stick to a family budget plan. One can make sections in the excel template: mortgage, food, clothes, electricity, water, activities, etc. By looking at each individual section’s cost, one can see specifically where the money is going. Having sections can help pinpoint where a family is spending too much or where they can afford cuts. Keeping to a family budget plan can help ease the stress of a tight budget or help save for a family vacation.
