Throwing a house party is a great way to spend quality time with family and friends, all without walking out your front door. As you plan your upcoming house party, it is critical that you manage your expenses; and, thanks to Easy Event Planning's house party budget worksheet, it doesn't have to be an intimidating task. Our tracker is designed to help you organize each of your house party expenses, from food and drinks to decorations to everything in-between. By using our budget, you can stay organized and have more time to spend with your loved ones. It is free to download into Google Sheets with the click of a button.
And, if our budget sheet is useful to you, check out our house party checklist as well!
6 Reasons You’ll Love Our House Party Budget Worksheet
Your house party isn't a one-size-fits-all event, so your expense tracker shouldn't be any old generic template. Rather, it should reflect you and your party's unique needs. Our budget planner was designed with this in mind, created with features specific to a house party. When you use it, you can be sure that every detail of your event will be accounted for.
2. Easy to View
Our house party budget sheet was designed to be user-friendly. Unlike other budget planners, which may detail all of your costs in one long, unorganized list, our sheet separates your house party expenses by category, dividing up the different costs so that you can easily view and interpret them.
One specific feature of the sheet that you'll find helpful is the estimated and actual columns. When you first start your planning process, you can enter a rough budget into the estimated column; and, as the party gets closer and you have a better idea of your specific expenses, you can enter costs into the actual column.
3. Pie Charts
Our sheet also makes it easy to see how much you're spending in each category. When you start filling in different expenses, the sheet will generate pie charts to give you a visual representation of your costs. This will give you a better idea of where you're allocating your resources and help you adjust accordingly.
Because this sheet operates from Google Sheets, it is easily shareable. By sharing and collaborating with other planners on your party, you can work quickly and efficiently. Sharing also reduces the possibility of making mistakes and ensures that each planner knows their responsibilities.
5. Easy to Organize
If you are collaborating on this sheet, you can easily assign people to specific expenses using the "Who Pays" column. Doing so will ensure that every expense is accounted for and that each planner plays their part.
6. Individual Payment Tab
You can also track your individual payments via the "Payment" tab on our expense sheet. First, enter your total cost. When you make payments, enter the specific amount paid into the sheet, and it will automatically calculate the amount still owed. This feature can be used for each and every collaborator on the sheet.
