Using Tags to Track Shared Expenses in Google Sheets

When you’re splitting budget categories down the middle it can be tricky to know who has spent the most so far in a month. Our tags spending tracker Google Sheet makes this an easy riddle to solve. Learn how to get started with shared expense tagging in your Tiller spreadsheet.

If you budget with a spouse or partner it’s common to need to know who spent how much on what.

With the Tiller Foundation Template it’s super easy to set up a budget for your shared expenses and income. But how does Diane know whether she is spending more than Jack on groceries each month when they plan to split it down the middle?

Our handy tags sheet can help you solve this riddle. It’s also great for any other detailed reporting you might need where using a single category doesn’t suffice. For example, if you’re a small business owner you could use this for tracking expenses related to a specific project or client and it’s really easy to see the tagged data across a custom date range.
