  • I am a huge Dave Ramsey fan. I have tried all kinds of budgeting forms and programs, but they just don't work for me. I do a biweekly budget instead of monthly since we get paid biweekly. It's so much easier that way for me. I am better with paper and pen. It did take me a while to get it down though. It takes time and patience. your first budget you will blow. lol Just keep trying. You will figure it out.

  • Also a big Dave Ramsey fan here, and like the above answer stated, it does take a couple of tries to get it down pat.

  • A lot of people have uploaded their budget spreadsheets here: http://www.livinglikenooneelse.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10821 ... take a look around and see if anything fits your needs.

    Also, you may want to join that forum! It's very helpful. I'm not a die-hard Dave Ramsey fan but I am a fan of financial responsibility, so I'm enjoying the forum.
