Personal Finance Buddy

September 2016 – 2018

I set out to take control of my finances in 2016 by recording all my purchases and start budgeting. Over the years I added more functionality and automation to my Google Sheet. In early 2018 I decided to create a public template to give others a simple, free tool to keep track of their own finances.

Later in 2018 I made some non-passive changes on my personal sheet that significantly enhanced it’s functionality and scalability.
