How to set up a holiday planner
Holiday Planner Binder:
Get yourself a binder…I like the ones that you can slip a cover and spine printable behind the clear plastic. I also prefer a 2 inch binder as I like space to keep all the recipes I use at Christmas so everything is in one place. I’ll link to the kind I use below.
Holiday Planner Printables:
Print off all the fabulous printables HERE and add them to your binder. Get your bonus sleeve printable HERE. If you have trouble printing the bonus, ensure that you select “print as image” under your advance printer options and it should print fine.
There are a variety of sizes available depending on the size of your binder.
Using some page dividers, divide your planner into sections to make it easier to find what you need. I keep the calendar pages in the front pocket as these are working documents that get pulled out and used often. You can read more about my Christmas calendar planning method that totally works HERE.

Now it’s time to fill it all in. Keep it simple, this is meant to help you, not complicate your life. Get your whole family involved especially with the calendar planning. And remember, once you have your holiday planner set up, it’s something you’ll be able to use year after year. You’ll only need to switch out the calendars. Sweet!
Don’t panic, plan it!
Let me know if you have any questions and I’d be happy to help. Now is the time to get organized for the holidays so come December we can feel a little less overwhelmed and can spend more time hanging out with our friends and family. You might still have some rushing around to do but at least your plan will be in place and you’ll know exactly what needs to be done. Yes, you’ve got this girl!
