I need a good free template to sort out and keep my receipts?

I need a good free template to sort out and keep my receipts?

All my receipts are stacking up and I would like to keep them more as a spending tracker rather then anything else, so I dont need the physical receipts, ive had a look around on the net and cant find the right kind of template im looking for and I would rather just enter it in then make one in excel. Any thoughts?>-

Kylie,Here is the format for a budget template which you can use on Excel. Unfortuntely, Yahoo won't allow me to set up all the formulas. I can only give you instructions. You can also use Quicken. Quicken will be easier to work with, but it will cost about $60.. I listed the categories to start below. Add or delete categories as needed. Each column in Excel should be one month. Each row should be 1 expense category. Make sure to reconcile your checkbook each month. Failing to reconcile your checkbook is like having a condom, but not using it.There are some items which are a bit harder to budget. For example, you pay for homeowner's or renter's insurance once a year. Take the bill divide it by 12, and add it to your expenses monthly as an accrued item. Some expenses are unpredictable. For example, you know that your car will eventually need an expensive repair, but you don't know when it will happen. Go through your check register for the last 24 months. Add up all the unexpected items and divide by 24. Then enter that amount on your budget each month.INCOME:Wages and BonusesInterest IncomeInvestment IncomeMiscellaneous IncomeIncome SubtotalINCOME TAXES WITHHELD:Federal Income TaxState and Local Income TaxSocial Security/Medicare TaxIncome Taxes SubtotalSpendable IncomeEXPENSES:HOME:Mortgage or RentHomeowners/Renters Insurance (actual amount paid)Property Taxes (actual amount paid)Home Repairs/Maintenance/HOA DuesHome ImprovementsUTILITIES:ElectricityWater and SewerNatural Gas or OilTelephone (Land Line, Cell)FOOD:GroceriesEating Out, Lunches, SnacksFAMILY OBLIGATIONS:Child Support/AlimonyDay Care, BabysittingHEALTH AND MEDICAL:Insurance (medical,dental,vision)Out-of-Pocket Medical ExpensesFitness (Yoga,Massage,Gym)TRANSPORTATION:Car PaymentsGasoline/OilAuto Repairs/Maintenance/FeesAuto InsuranceOther (tolls, bus, subway, taxi)DEBT PAYMENTS:Credit CardsStudent LoansOther LoansENTERTAINMENT/RECREATION:Cable TV/Videos/MoviesComputer ExpenseHobbiesSubscriptions and DuesVacationsPETS:FoodGrooming, Boarding, VetCLOTHING:INVESTMENTS AND SAVINGS:401(K)or IRAStocks/Bonds/Mutual FundsCollege FundSavingsEmergency FundMISCELLANEOUS:Toiletries, Household ProductsGifts/DonationsGrooming (Hair, Make-up, Other)Miscellaneous ExpenseTotal Investments and ExpensesSurplus/Shortage (Spendable income

Sean's comment is great. Just remember that there are things not listed on that list, so you might have to do your own list first and then compare it to the one on this program. Maybe I read it too fast but seems like laundromat, dry cleaning, memberships, licenses, church stipend, etc. were missing.
