  1. Just watched the whole video. Thank you so much I've been wanting to do this and had no idea where to start. We are about to move and have our first mortgage so this is needed. My only obstacle is going to be coming up with the percentages in my budget because I have no idea what they should be yet. Anyway, I wanted to let you know the way you made this video is so simple that anyone can do it. Everytime I hear the word "formula" I cringe but this wasn't bad at all. I've always been intimidated by this program. I took an excel course in college and it can get very overwhelming. Thanks again for making this simple, I know it will help me. 

  2. I am so glad I kept searching you tube for help. I knew what I wanted/needed to do but did not exactly know how to get the results I was looking for. Watched   the video but will be watching it again when i get the download of the spread sheet.
    Thank you for offering the spreadsheet for an affordable price.
