How do I start over with a completely new Foundation Spreadsheet?

I gave up trying to “fix” my poorly crafted Budget. Besides, so much has changed with my financial situation that I am afraid of not only wasting a lot more of my time, but not confident more tweaking will result in an accurate record of my accounts. So… I like Tiller Money, but wish to start over with a clean sheet. What is the best way to do this? IOW… do I just open a new Foundation Budget (use a new name)? Or cancel my subscription and open a new one?..???

You should be able to just download a new template and hit the road. Set up your accounts in your new template and you are good to go. You might want to name it differently just to keep from confusing yourself. And you might want to unhook your accounts from the old one. But, restarting is pretty easy. My first few months with Tiller, I restarted probably 4 or 5 times :slight_smile:


It’s hard to believe it will be that simple, but THANK YOU for your timely reply! I will mark this as the solution once I am able to successfully do this.


@susandennis is right. I would add that when transferring your data to a different sheet and you need to move over your categorized transactions, categories, and manual balances you can follow the steps in the guide below to transition.
