Tiller is the easiest way to budget with the flexibility and control of a spreadsheet

"I used to use Microsoft Money, then Quicken, and now Tiller. Tiller is my favorite because it’s very flexible for reporting, categorizing for budgeting, and very reliable with excellent support."

"The customizable aspects of Tiller are outstanding."

"My wife and I started using Tiller about a year ago. We were fairly responsible with our money but were unclear about what we were spending month to month on groceries, bills, dining out, and subscriptions.

Because we are saving for a house, every dollar matters.

So we started looking for a budgeting tool that allowed us to track expenses and savings 1 -2 times per month without a lot of manual updating.

We ultimately chose Tiller because of its flexibility and automation.

The customizable aspects of Tiller are outstanding.

Our favorite Tiller features include the AutoCat transaction categorizer, the savings budget sheet, and of course daily automated transaction updates.

We spend about 45 minutes per month tracking our spending and saving to make sure we’re on track.

The impact of Tiller is clear: we've saved a sizable down payment, and on average exceeded every monthly savings goal last year (with many smaller goals as well).

All with a detailed view of our cash flow.

It’s been very helpful and the subscription has paid for itself many times over."

Start with your Foundation Template

The spreadsheets below were created to extend Tiller’s Foundation Template, which already includes sheets for tracking expenses, net worth, and monthly and yearly budgets.

Out of the box, the Foundation Template can help you analyze past trends and plan your financial future.

But, of course, part of the fun of managing your money with a spreadsheet is manipulating your data and viewing it from several perspectives.

Foundation Template Essentials

The Savings Budget Spreadsheet, which replicates an envelope budget, and the Savings Goals and Debt Payoff Spreadsheet (both for Google Sheets) are popular extensions for the core Foundation Template:

How to Install Tiller Community Templates

For Google Sheets – Google Sheets templates can easily be installed in your Foundation Template or other Google spreadsheets with the free Tiller Community Solutions add-on. Read more about the add-on here.

For Microsoft Excel – The Tiller Community is rapidly building new templates for Excel. However, there are currently fewer Tiller-compatible templates for Excel vs Google Sheets. Excel templates are downloaded and then manually installed in your workbook. Our team is improving this workflow in the year ahead.
