Work out a budget plan by downloading this handy spreadsheet. Fill in the column marked budget with the maximum you want to spend on any item.

Fill in the second column to allocate who is going to find estimates for each item.

You should ideally get three for each item.

When you start to get estimates keep them in a safe place.

Once you have decided on the best quote, fill this in the final column and keep a tally.

If you start to overspend in one area, see if you can claw back money in another area.
