6+ Excel Home Budget Templates

We’ve always been told to “budget our money” as early as we were young. We were taught by our parents that we should not spend recklessly on stuff that are not important and should always keep a good amount for future uses—and by future, it could either mean the near or the distant future.

But to be practical, having a budget is indeed important for all of us. A budget plan is not only applicable for individuals but also to households, companies, businesses, organizations, and schools. A budget plan creates a spending plan for the money, and it helps to ensure that you will always have enough money for the more important things.
