The Lauren Greutman budget tracker helps you establish a budget and review your spending against that budget on a month-by-month basis. You can create your own custom budget categories to reflect the way you manage your money and then apply those categories to transactions that are automatically fed into your Tiller-powered Google Sheet. 

We recommend starting with the current month. Don’t worry about data from prior months. After you’ve categorized this month’s transactions, the Dashboard in this template will reflect your progress on that budget. You can experiment with an alternate budget scenario from the Planner sheet. You can also track your spending in detail on the Trends sheet. 

Review the resources below to familiarize yourself with how to use this template and address some common questions about getting started.
