My wife and I are expecting our first child in just 5 days now. It’s a very exciting time in our household and it has taken a few months to get everything ready for the newborn.

To ensure I have everything I need, I made a checklist (in Excel of course) and worked my way through it.

If you want to learn Excel basics, this spreadsheet features a few fantastic tools that I thought you may be interested in seeing.

  1. Check boxes to make it easy for the user to mark of items as they go
  2. Conditional Formatting to cross out the items with a strikethrough when it is checked
  3. A Thermometer Chart to show progress through the list and how close it is to completion (See how to create a thermometer chart in Excel).
  4. The COUNTIF function to count the items as they are checked off
