What version of Excel are you using?  Have you tried the Fit to Page option?

You can find it in a couple of places:

File > Print > Scaling

Home > Page Layout > (then click just to the right of the Section Header that says Scale to Fit)

Sorry, I don't know of any other way, other than fit to page.

Have you tried the Justified and Distributed settings?  I've never used them, but you might see if they will work for you.
