How to use my Cash Flow Budgeting system in Microsoft Excel.


  • Microsoft Excel Installed.


Learn how to control your money; tell it where to go instead of wondering where it went!  In this course, I will show you the same tool I use for tracking my expenses over the past 3 years.  This tool has enabled me to spend less, save more, and meet my financial goals!  This tool has built-in accountability and is great for both couples or individuals.  The tool is available for Microsoft Excel.  You may even learn a few Excel tips and tricks along the way!

You will learn how to track past transactions, predict and plan for future transactions, and how to ensure that you have enough money in your checking account to pay for what you need.  The built-in accountability will not only force you to spend less and save more, but it will give you the freedom to splurge on the things you plan for!  Budgeting doesn't have to be restrictive and scary.  When you plan for fun, it is even more fun!

Once you start tracking each transaction, you will naturally begin to challenge them.  You will start to ask yourself "Is this what I want to be spending my money on?"  You will start to focus your money on what matters and then you realize you will have more of it because you won't be wasting it on things you do not find important.  This is how the Cash Flow Budget system brings built-in accountability.

I look forward to having you in the course!

Who this course is for:

  • People interested in controlling and understanding their finances and meeting their financial goals.

Hi! I'm Scott, known online as the Excel Gamemaster.  I'm an engineer by day, but by night I write video games using a piece of common software most people wouldn't associate with game making - Microsoft Excel.

Most of the courses that teach Excel VBA use boring accounting or business examples.  Those are great for when you're trying to fall asleep at night, but what about when you're trying to actually learn VBA and have fun doing so?  That's where my courses come in.

I will show you step by step how you can write video games from scratch using only the Excel built in programming language  Visual Basic for Applications (VBA).  But don't worry, the skills you learn in my courses will certainly be applicable outside of game making.

Let's get started making some video games!
