CLOSED Microsoft Office Holiday Help With a Giveaway

Microsoft Office is determined to find useful, free ways to help you this holiday season! Here are some fabulous finds from the MS Office Blog.

The Office team designed three ­free Office 2010 holiday-related templates to help you relax and focus on your loved ones. They include a OneNote recipe book, Excel shopping budget spreadsheet and Word menu, and each one can be customized to best fit your holiday needs.

To help you best utilize these templates, the Office team created their “Top 10 Tips and Tricks” and they’re full of festive ideas. Get started by compiling your favorite holiday meals in the OneNote recipe book and sharing it with friends. Or use your Excel shopping spreadsheet, beat the crowds and start checking items off your list, which you can view alongside your budget and on the go with Excel Mobile.

I hope that these templates will help you get organized as well as  have more time for family & fun this holiday season!
