Starting Your 2017 Budget

As you’re coming to completion of 2016 and aim to close out your 2016 MoneySlinger budget, continuing with a new 2017 Moneyslinger budget is easy. Sometime near the end of December, make a copy of  your 2016 budget (as seen below) and name your new budget accordingly for the following year.

Next, “Clear All Tracking” data from this new budget (as seen below). This will remove all 2016 Green, Blue, Gold tracking data on your Tracking Worksheets…but NOT your core budget plan data on your Budget Worksheet. Then adjust your budget figures as necessary per your best future estimate for each item, and balance them to get near “0” balance at the bottom, and you’re off and running for 2017.
