Christmas? Already? Bear with me here, people. Face it… Christmas sneaks up on us sooo fast every year. One day it is back-to-school and the next thing you know, you are trying to figure out how to explain to your kids why the dang Elf on the Shelf has been in the same place for the past 4 days. I know you feel my pain, right? The holiday season does not have to be stressful though. It can be fun and relaxing and actually enjoyable. The key is being organized. And organization starts EARLY. I don’t start in July or anything but by October, I like to have a solid plan in place for the holiday season. Today I’m going to show you exactly how I do it. This is how I organize Christmas.
If you have been reading my blog for any time at all, you know that I am a big fan of printables. Printables are key when it comes to organization. Bonus points if they are pretty. In order to organize Christmas, I create a Christmas Planner each year. This planner is filled with printables to organize every aspect of the holiday season. Budgets, Gift Lists, Address Lists, Meal Planning. You name it, it’s in there.
Need some serious holiday organization motivation? Learn how I do it with this all-inclusive guide!
The printables fit nicely into a standard sized 3 ring binder. I like to add dividers and plastic page protectors to keep everything together and in order. Page protectors are nice for keeping track of receipts and are useful in conjunction with the Budget Tracker printable. They are also great to hold recipes that you tear out from magazines while prepping for your holiday meals and baking.
Start planning and organizing early and your holiday season can be stress-free! Imagine being able to actually relax with the family and not stress over last minute gifts, knowing you have everything done ahead of time.
I’m so excited to let you know that my eBook, Conquer the Chaos: Printables to Organize Every Aspect of the Christmas Holiday is available again this year!
In the eBook, you get access to all the entire set of printables, tips on how to use them and links to other resources that will help you plan and manage the holiday season.
READY TO GET ORGANIZED AND TAKE THE STRESS OUT OF THE HOLIDAYS?
