When school is out in December, you would like to go on vacation (destination of your choice, I chose Hawaii) if you can afford it. A spreadsheet is the perfect tool to create a budget. CREATE WORKSHEET: OPEN A NEW BLANK FILE Begin by adding the worksheet title and row and column headings as shown in the table below. Notice that F…M means columns F through M and the data in row 3 is the remaining months of the year.

SAVE FILE Save the file with the name, DVP1 Budget Last Name (using your last name). Save often as you work through this assignment. ADDITIONAL EXPENSES What other expenses do you have? There are at least two more that I think you probably have: housing and transportation. Add these next. You all live in different places and have different types of transportation costs so your information will be different from the example. HOUSING If you live in the dorm, simply label Cell A13 Dorm but if you rent a house, you will have a house payment as well as other expenses such as utility costs, cable TV, and water bill. Even if you live at home you cost your parent’s money. Ask them how much your share of housing is. TRANSPORTATION Transportation will vary too. If you have a car, maybe you have a car payment. You will have insurance and gas. If you walk, you won’t have that expense. Add your additional expenses in column A. SCHOOL AND ?? Add the amount of your costs for school. How much did you spend on books? How much did you spend on tuition? On fees? Enter those values. IF you have a scholarship, still add in the cost of tuition. To offset the expense, add it as an Income item, as shown in the figure below.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
