Monthly Cash Flow Calculator

A cash flow analysis shows your income and expenses and determines whether you are "living within your means" or having to borrow money each month. The calculator below will help you to categorize your monthly income and expenses expenses and will show you whether or not you are spending more than you make.

After tracking your expenditures over the course of 30 days you can categorize the money you spend and create a cash flow analysis. Even if you don't feel like tracking every cent you spend for a month, you will find that the calculator below has a large number of categories that help you to guesstimate your monthly expenses fairly accurately. It will be useful to collect together your check book and a stack of monthly bills before starting in with this calculator, as they will contain the data you need to fill in all of the different fields.

You will want to use the Hidden Expense Calculator first because the monthly number it generates is needed in this calculator.

Total Income - This is your total income per month
Total Expenses - This is the total amount of money you spend per month on expenses.
Loss or gain - This number is total income minus total expenses, and indicates your loss or gain each month. A positive number indicates that you make more than you spend and therefore are able to save money each month. A negative number indicates that you spend more than you make and are therefore borrowing money each month.

If you find from this analysis that you spend more than you make, then it may be time to look at your lifestyle and make some corrections.
