6 Reasons You’ll Love Our College Party Budget Worksheet

1. Event-Specific

College parties differ greatly from adult, professional or children's parties, and we understand that. The vibe is totally different and so are the expectations from your guests. Decorations, themes, music, lighting - our planner takes that and much more into account.

2. Pie Charts

Once you start typing in your numbers and making your estimates, a pie chart will automatically begin to load and show you where your funds are being allocated. You can see if any areas seem misappropriated, and you can easily adjust your spending estimates to make up discrepancies.

3. Easy to View

Nobody likes having to spend a bunch of time looking for the relevant values in a spreadsheet, and we are well aware of that. Instead of having one tedious long list that makes it difficult to find what you're looking for, we separate it into easily findable categories. Spend less time trying to find values in the list, and more time actually inputting numbers, making calculations and editing your variables.

We also feature separate columns for your estimated costs and actual cost. This way, you can guesstimate your initial expenses and then input your actual costs as your receive more information.

4. Shareable!

Don't let one person do all the work! Collaborate with your fellow party planners via Google Sheets to split up the workload, spot errors and input information as you receive it.

5. Easy to Organize

Not only do we make this sheet shareable, we make it easy to work with your friends as well. Our columns and rows have an intuitive design about them, and facilitate easy teamwork and responsibility assigning.

6. Individual Payment Tab

On to the nitty gritty: you can assign expenses and tasks to various individuals, and each person can input what they paid. This lets you see in real time the planning phase coming together and the various elements being accounted for.
