Here's a link to the budget spreadsheet I've been using for about 8 years. Its about as basic as you can get. Its in google docs. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... UtxY2g4ZGc
Its pretty self explanitory. Either import it or make your own copy on your google drive. Once you have the template saved with your consistant monthly expenses make a copy of the template and rename it as the month you're budgeting for. Do this every month and you should have the hang of it in no time.
Good luck and feel free to send along any questions. I'll probably remove the link in about a week so make sure you save it as your own.
