6 Reasons You’ll Love Our Potluck Party Budget Worksheet

1. Easy to Organize

If you happen to be sharing your template with other planners, you can easily assign someone to a specific item by entering their name in the “who pays” column. This lets everyone know who is responsible and helps you keep track of which items are still needed.

2. Pie Charts

One great formatting feature that is automatically added to the template is the charts. As you start filling in all of your potluck party expenses in each line item, the overall category total will be added to the pie graphs. These are super helpful to see how much you are spending in each category and helps you decide if you want to adjust some of your spendings to one category or another.

3. Individual Payment Tab

Our expense sheet can also check tabs of your individual payments and expenses. This can be done through the Payment Tab at the bottom of the worksheet. It’s easy to use, simply fill in who is responsible for that item and the Total Cost and you’re good to go. The calculator will calculate the amount that left for you!

4. Shareable!

Because this sheet is downloaded into your Google Sheets, it’s super easy to share with others! Having multiple people working on the same document will help you get your potluck planned in no time! It will also help you reduce mistakes that you otherwise would have missed if everyone was working on a separate sheet.

Another feature that we have included in the actual and estimate column. This is super helpful because before you start you can give yourself a rough estimate on how much you think you’ll be spending and then when you know the actual price you can fill that in. As you planning you can also adjust your spending accordingly.
