It is easy to create a budget for your personal finances, but it is not as easy to always stick with it. For that reason, it might take you a few months before the total you are actually spending matches up with the recommended amount from your budget. This is okay if you are not in debt because there is no rush. However, if you have creditors calling your home at all hours of the day, it might be within your best interest to meet with a debt relief counselor or to schedule and appointment with your financial advisor.
The great thing about personal budgeting spreadsheets is they can easily be modified to fit your budget. You can enter the exact categories you use monthly for your income and your expenses. These categories can be really detailed such as having individual credit cards listed by name or they can be broad such as having one group named credit cards for all your credit card bills.
