One of the best things I’ve done to keep the holiday season organized each year is create and use a Christmas planner. I made mine up a number of years ago and simply re-use the same one year after year. I love having everything I need right at my fingertips making for less stress and chaos all around. I highly recommend starting one if you haven’t already and to encourage you, and to make life super easy, here are some free printables to help you to do just that. Use the printables below to fill your binder to help you organize everything to do with the holidays from gifts and cards to recipes, menus and parties. Pick and choose the ones that work for you and your needs and don’t worry about the rest :)
