Simple Collaborative Christmas Shopping List

This holiday season I wanted to make sure my husband and I kept close tabs on how much we were spending on Christmas gifts. With a lot of people on your shopping list, it gets really easy to overspend.

I created a quick Christmas shopping list that both my husband and I could edit at the same time using Google Drive. It was important that he have a copy of the list available at all times so that I wasn’t stuck doing all the shopping.

This is what it ended up looking like:

  • Shows how over- or under-budget we were for each person
  • Shows total budgeted vs. total actually spent
