Keeping organized for Christmas

When you have a lot of people to buy Christmas gifts for, it can become quite a challenge to keep track of everything you buy everyone. It can be just as difficult keeping a budget during the gift buying frenzy.

A couple of years ago, I made up a spreadsheet on Excel to help me keep everything together. In the spirit of blogging, I have decided to share it.

It is very simple to use. Some of the cells are locked, so they can’t get screwed up. Just enter the names of those you wish to buy for, then set a budget amount for each person.

As you purchase presents for people, just enter the name and prices, then all the totals will add up at the bottom.

Keeping to a Christmas budget will help save you some of you holiday cash.

I welcome feedback on this spreadsheet, and always am looking for ways to make it better. If you make improvements on it, I would be interested in a copy Emailed to me (Maybe I’ll use that one next year!)

Also, if you have one better I’d sure like to have it!!!

Hopefully, some people will find this useful.
