6 Reasons You’ll Love Our Retirement Party Budget Worksheet
1. Easy to View
If you haven't used a budget sheet before, don't worry! This sheet is super easy to use, that anyone can use it. Because retirement party expenses can become a mess if you have a continuous list of items, we have divided each item into a specific category so you can easily find any item.
To help you further organize your expenses, we have added an actual and estimated column. Before you get started making purchases for the party, you can give yourself a rough estimate on how much you think/want to spend on each item. Then as you get the ball rolling, you can add in your actual cost. As you go, you can easily change your spending in each category.
Who doesn't want their retirement party to be one-of-a-kind! Well, just like your party, your budget tracker should be just as unique! Our template has been created especially for your retirement party expenses. Sectioned into categories and line items for you to easily navigate your expenses.
3. Easy to Organize
If you have decided to work with multiple people to organize your retirement party, you can easily assign items to each individual. To assign an item simply write their name in the 'who pays' columns. This lets you and everyone else know who is responsible for what.
4. Individual Payment Tab
Our expense tracker has a tab specifically designed to track your individual expense. At the bottom of the page, beside the retirement tab, you'll find the Payment Tab. This sheet is super simple to use. Simply fill in who is responsible for that item in the 'who pays' column and enter in the Total Cost. The sheet will then calculate the amount that's left.
5. Pie Charts
With the help of our template, you can sort your items into categories. As you fill in each item, it will automatically be added to the pie charts at the top. These graphs will help you visually see, how much you are spending in each category. This is useful when gauging how much you want to allocate to each of these categories.
Through Google Sheets, you will be able to share your retirement party budget planner with as many people as you'd like. A benefit of everyone using the same expense sheet is that it will eliminate mistakes that could have occurred with everyone was using a separate sheet.
