Question Drywall cost estimation

I am in the process of finishing the framing of my basement. What is the best way to estimate how much drywall I will need to buy? Thanks.

I like to map out my drywall layout on paper before I even buy the drywall. Plan to minimize the number of seams (use larger sheets than 8x4 if possible to get them into your basement and if it will save a seam or two when you're mudding). I always add a little extra from what I planned, and always seem to use them one way or another. You can take any extras back to the store.

Best of luck,
Kirk Severtson
