If you run a small business, or even have a large hobby, you’ll know how useful data can be to ensure you make all the right decisions. Even personal tasks like planning a party or working out your household budget, can be a royal pain unless you know how to balance the budgets and make the financials work. But it’s generally not worth hiring a book-keeper or accountant to do the job, which is where these free downloadable spreadsheet templates are a really excellent option.
Spreadsheet123.com offers a large collection of free (and a few non-free) spreadsheets for calculating and structuring all sorts of useful stuff. The spreadsheets are arranged in a number of categories, from family and home (including college student budget, home inventory and shopping list!) to timesheets, savings and even debt payoff.
The spreadsheets are available for immediate download, no sign up needed, and will work with Microsoft Excel and the free OpenOffice/LibreOffice programs, which is very neat. And don’t confuse these downloads with sparse, badly formed offerings. The spreadsheets that you get here are top quality, highly sophisticated number crunchers, so all you have to do is add in your own relevant numbers and you’re cooking.
The site also offers templates for Microsoft Word, for things like business cards and award certificates, but the real gold nuggets on the site are the spreadsheets and calculator downloads. The site does charge for crucial business sheets such as inventory and timesheeets, but the majority remain free, which is nice. All in all this is a superb resource and definitely a must-have bookmark, just in case you need to sort out a problem sometime in the future.
