In process of decluttering paperwork :-D

Want to sort out all utilities etc and keep track of costs etc

Thinking of using a spreadsheet for this info but I am useless with figures and accounts, or the best way to use a spreadsheet. I am sure there are tips that could make things easier.

Use one simple spreadsheet at the moment, dates in one column and figures in another and I can even use the auto sum button which is very useful :w00t:

Anybody know any free tuition re spreasheets online anywhere ??

is it MS excel?

Yes. Wow

Have a look at the cover disks for computer mags (NOT the games ones:-D ) & see if they are giving copies of Quicken or MS Money or a similar program away - also search on the internet for freeware that can do the same.

These progs will allow you to type in what you earn, what you spend (you can categorise things as well e.g. pub, utilities, food, car etc) & then give you nice looking reports & graphs showing where all your money is going, how much you're spending in the pub etc.

Much better than Excel (I say that because the progs do everything for you without you having to create formulae & design reports).
