Excel: Help With My Checkbook

I want to write a formula so that all expenses for January get summed in a cell below my checkbook labeled "January." I need a formula that sees if the word January is entered into a cell and if January is entered, no matter in how many cells, the formula adds those expenses into my total cell below which is also named January. The same applied for February and all months of the year. How do I do this?
