2. Simple to Sort
Our ‘who pays’ column allows you to assign an individual for each cost. This way everyone is chipping in and your budget remain organized.

Unlike other budgeters, our expense tracker supports the different ideas you and your guests may have for your night. Our categories were made with game nights in mind, so the only thing you have to worry about is filling in the numbers.

The Payment tab (found at the bottom of the worksheet) allows you to easily put in the Total Cost for every item and give it to a specific person. You can then put in any payments done and it will calculate the amount left.
5. Organized for a User-Friendly Experience
Who wants to deal with a long list when you are trying to plan a relaxing night? Our expense sheet separates it into simple categories to make sure everything is accounted for.
We also have estimated and actual columns in our worksheet to come up with a rough budget and finalize it once you are comfortable with your game night expenses.
6. Pie Charts to Sweeten the Deal
The pie charts at the top of our budget planner may not be as yummy as the actual treat, but it will make your planning much sweeter.
