I am a big fan of Google Documents – I use it for rough drafts of blog posts, working on budgets, excel spreadsheets to track blog income; basically anything that I used to use Word for, I now use Google Documents. I can access my documents from any computer, I don’t have to worry about crashes here at home, and I can share my documents with anyone so we can both work on them at the same time. It really is a terrific way of working with Word and Excel docs. And while I was comfortable setting up my own templates in Google Docs, now they went ahead and came out with what looks like hundreds of free templates, from Business Plans to Budget Tracking to Resumes to Thesis Outlines – talk about good stuff! And on top of just offering them, they are way better than the ones the Microsoft offers with their software – much more user friendly and intuitive. Here are some of my favorites upon first glance:
Personal Monthly Budget
Home Expense Calculator
If you are a Google Docs user and have not noticed the templates page, when you are logged in look up in the upper right corner – there they are. I am sure there is something there you can use, as I found a bunch I have saved to my account for future use!
