Show Me Your Sankey? Another blogger chain has begun


#21

Mine were rounded since 2017 is not over…

Like @Mr.JumpStart could just do percentages too, though it will be a bit more difficult with several layers. It would take some more explaining to the audience…


#22

I love these! My wife finally can read and understand what we are doing. My budget that lays it all out month by month and sums up throughout the year is a bit much to digest, but the visual makes it so much easier!


#23

Such a cool tool. We just did ours. We actually did 2, one for our current situation, and one for 2020 once the mortgage is paid off :-). It’s nice and motivating being able to visualize the future :slight_smile: .

I have added all the links (@Mr.JumpStart, @jdroth, @BiglawInvestor, @atypicallife ), except for @MilitaryDollar . It seems the blog is currently down?

If you could all add my link please. It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks


#24

Here’s mine :slight_smile:


#25

Links updated.


#26

I didn’t make a separate post for it but I did use one in my latest expense report! I also added the group to my post.


#27

Finally got around to using this awesome little tool. Broke down my expenses for this year in a new post:

I linked to this Rockstar finance post at the end since I figured it was the easiest way to keep the chain updated.

Here’s the Sankey itself


#28

yes!! I love making finances fun. Off to play with this new tool.


#29

I’m playing with this now. How do you get it to break down into the larger categories like fixed expenses and discretionary? Thanks for the help.


#30

I couldn’t figure out how to create larger categories so it’s a little busy. Quite surprised at how much post tax income I’d saved.

I also included it in my last post about my alternative to budgeting (before I followed a budget). I made sure to tag everyone at the end. Would love to be part of the chain if possible.

Current chain has 11 entries.
