    Red face Help required with Income/Expenditure Budget

    Hi all!

    I am trying to do an Income and Expenditure budget. I would like to know what exactly I can budget for and what amounts I can put down?
    Obviously I would like it to be as reasonable as possible, but at the same time I don't want to end up completely skint at the end of each month.

    If anyone can help or point me in the right direction, I would be very grateful!
    Perhaps somebody has an example. Anything will do!

    You can PM me, if you do not want your examples shown publicly!

    Many Thanks!
    Jeff.

    Hi Jeff, I use an excel spreadsheet which does the calcualations for me each month.

    It has spaces for every incoming amount and then I've filled in the regular outgoings (utilities, council tax, mortgageicon/rent etc)-then there are spaces for variables. Then it adds and subtracts the relevant bits and I cry for a little while and then dust myself off!!

    Would be happy to somehow get it to you-it would be a blank template that you're welcome to. In fact, anyone else who wants a copy if welcome also

    I put any expenses for pets in a seperate column.


    Living expenses for a couple are exactly that, anything else is other expenses!

    I put down 300 for us as a couple with one child. 250 is what most of the guides say for a couple with no kids.
