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 canÃ¢â¬â¢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 IÃ¢â¬â¢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.
