Now that the columns you want reformatted to a different size have been chosen, it is time to do just that. Using your computer‘s mouse, right click anywhere within the highlighted area. This will bring up a pop-up menu. On that menu is the option ”column width”. Click on that option. This will bring up a window asking you to enter in the width of the columns. If there is a number already in that box you will need to erase that first by highlighting it and pressing your ”delete” key. Now type in the number ”12” and click the ”Ok” button.
A good starting point in your quest to make a home budget, is to take stock of your current and recent situation, and list out all your monthly outgoings. If you only do this from memory, there is a chance you will miss one or more important items. You probably have several sources of information on what those regular outgoings are, and whether they are easy to find depends on how well organised you are with your paperwork. It is worth checking back over at least three months bank and credit card statements, and jot down what your regular payments are out of those. At the same time, you can also make a note of items of expenditure that may recur later on.
