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.
Now go over to the next column and label it ‘affiliate link‘. Finally you will want two more columns labeled ‘username‘ and ‘password‘. You may not need these with all of your affiliate programs, but it sure is a hassle to need them and not have them. Now just fill in the rows with the information that you already have. And when you join a new affiliate, be sure to paste the information in your spreadsheet.
