How to Use the Comprehensive Christmas Budget
This document has everything you need on one tab. Go through each category and start filling out the required information. The “Gifts” section is where you will list everyone you want to buy a gift for. From the “Gifts” section, there is a column for your budget and the actual amount you have spent for the holidays. This Christmas Budget even provides the difference between these two figures, no more tiresome calculators.
The other sections will be filled out the same way and provide you with the same calculation. There is a section to enter: gift wrapping supplies, postcards, decorations, food, and drinks. There will be a complete total in the very last row that is added from all the totals of each section.
This information will also be provided for you at the top, for your convenience. Simply scroll back to the top after you have finished entering each item in your list to get a complete overview of all your information. At the top, there is a space that lets you know how many gifts have been purchased, your estimated budget, your actual amount spent, and the difference between these numbers. Now you can take control of the holidays by using this simple budget template!
