To get started, type the month in question in large print at the top. Next, you need to type (also in large font) how much money you make each month. So, if this is a four week month, you want to take your weekly paycheck and add it four times. Next, you need to go through and create a column with your expenses. You need to start with the necessary items first.
Rent or mortgage, homeowners insurance or renters insurance, all utility bills, auto loan or auto insurance payments, gas for your vehicle, food for home, and so forth. Once again, these are items that you cannot live without.
