With a passion and absolute love for spreadsheets. It was an enjoyable experience to create several budgets over the years to account for the various type of payment cycles. Since not everyone enjoys excel, I thought it was a good idea to share ours. Feel free to download the budgets below from google drive and modify them to your own needs.
As time goes on I will continue to add new ones and if you have suggestions or questions then let me know.
