6 Reasons You’ll Love Our Block Party Budget Worksheet
1. Easy to View
Instead of having all of the details in one long list like you may have had otherwise, this sheet separates block party expenses by category which creates a very user-friendly experience.
Another formatting feature that will help you plan is the estimated and actual columns. You can adjust your spending accordingly if you start out with a rough budget in the estimated column and make adjustments as needed once you become aware of actual prices.
2. Pie Charts
These graphs will show you visually how much you’re spending by category. Once you start filling in your budget items, the expense sheet will automatically start filling in the pie charts at the top of the page. Use this tool to gauge if you want to allocate more to a specific category, or less to another!
