Some tips.

1) Use a spreadsheet computer program if possible; easy to modify and no math errors!

2) Keep it simple; round torepparttar nearest dollar and use a minimum. I show anything that costs $20 or more.

3) Be conservative; over-estimate expenses and under-estimate income.

4) This is a living document and should be updated every day as your estimates become real numbers.

How does this help you?

1) It forces you to thoroughly research costs and schedules.
