I'm want to use this for a fix n flip that I have and I want to determine how much I'm spending and compare it to once I sell the house. I have property taxes that I pay every 3 months, can I put that under the fixed expenses along with the loan amount and my insurance? I hope this make sense.

Thank you so much for this tutorial! it help me a lot !!
I have somes questions:
when you show how to make apears all the budgets categories in the transaction expenses, how do you do with the incomes?
is there some way to link all the monthly bugets to make like a yearly board?

Reply
mini maggot 15/09/2021 - 12:21 Sáng

You shouldn't copy the Fixed Expenses value but link it. So when you change it, it automatically updates.

Hi, Michael! Thank you for all the great information and instructions in this video. I’m not savvy in Excel at all, but you explained everything so clearly! Can you also show how to use the income side, too? I appreciate your time and effort in making these videos! 🙂

I would like to modify the yearly budget template from google sheets so I can see the planned vs actual spending / income! It would be amazing to see a video on this!

Hi, when I'm adding lines on the transactions sheet using the "add __ more rows at bottom" button, the new rows don't have the little dotted line under them. If I add one row at a time, using the "insert one row above/below" button, they appear. Do you know how I can format to get those dotted lines to show up without adding one row at a time? Thanks!

Hi thank you for the video. I am having an issue though. My income section is not changing. When I put in income on the transaction sheet it is not reflected on the summary sheet.

Reply
David Johnson 15/09/2021 - 12:21 Sáng

Hello Michael. Question: How do you create additional months and keep the original summary page with the planned income and expense columns? Then, how do you keep the original expense categories in the additional months?

Thank you so much for this tutorial! I have a quick question. Under Expenses, is there a way to make it so that it does not round the number up? I’d like for those amounts to be exact and to the penny. Hope to hear back soon! 🙂
