                                                 Price-Tracking Spreadsheet

Click here for my price-tracking spreadsheet.
Once you open it, you can go to "File" & select your "Download As" program.
I wrote it in Excel & recommend you use it in Landscape page layout.
If you don't have Excel, you can download Open Office for free here & it works just fine.
