This is the year to get organized and enjoy the holiday season stress free. Spending an hour with your new Free Seven Page Holiday Planner Binder will help you rock December this year!
If you have ever had a chaotic holiday season, you know how stressful it can be. If you haven’t had a stressful season, I applaud you. Unless you are a naturally organized person, it takes some effort to train to use planners and binders to stay on track.
Once you start using them though, they become an obsession and it’s hard to stop. You will feel so amazing this year when you start using this planner, but the key is really to stick with it. Since it’s just about 30 days, I bet you can do it. If you want to do a test run, try the Free Thanksgiving Planner this year. I am loving that one so much! The time table to know when to make each food is one of my favorite pages.
Why This Works
No Stress – Using a planner keeps us organized and structured which decreases the stress on all of us.
Visual Plan – This gives you a very clear visual of how your holidays are going to pan out this year. Since there is a section for budgeting, gifts and events, you will be able to quickly glance at your binder and know what is going on for the days and weeks ahead. You can budget out your gifts instead of being left with surprises.
So, grab an empty three ring binder and print these off! You’re going to love how you feel this holiday season.
🎁 What’s Included
🎄 Holiday Party Planner
This is a great page for anyone that is THE party planner of your friend group. You know we all have THE one! The one that organizes and has those amazing get-togethers that we hate to miss. This planner has all the details listed on one page to organize your thoughts, menus, and shopping lists! The best part is, you can print off several if you are involved with multiple parties or you change the menu!
❄️ Holiday Menu Planner
This is one of my all-time favorites! I love to plan the special foods that we make around the holidays. I usually include a recipe or two that I only serve at the holidays and it is nice to write them down to make sure they complement the other dishes. Print a fresh copy for each event.
🧹 Holiday Cleaning Checklist
I know this is a funny one for some people, but it’s really important to a lot of us to have a tidy home for special guests and families. It feels extra special that the home is spotless and fresh. It’s not always about the cookies and fudge! Take the cleaning checklist and adjust it for your own home. The areas where your family spends the most time are probably the most important, so start there.
🧁 Holiday Baking Checklist
How many of us have little scraps of paper or backs of envelopes with ideas for what we want to bake for the holidays? Sure, I use Pinterest like you, but those special recipes that my family enjoys are cut from magazines or written on loose recipe cards. This free printable keeps all of the family baking faves in one place. No more used envelopes!
If your binder is big enough, you can also print off all of your “I can’t wait to make this!” recipes and put them in there. Our home recipe binder as all of our favorites included and we love to put notes and dates on it. What is the first thing that goes on your list?
📸 Holiday Photo Checklist
Being a former scrapbooker, I adore photos. I don’t usually need a list of pictures I would regret not taking, but as the holiday season gets busier, I rely on a list to make sure I get those photos that I want to capture and remember to take for the holiday! Have you ever had that year you didn’t get a photo of the tree or the gifts? Frustrating, right?
Maybe it is the family photo in Santa Hats in front of the town’s Christmas Tree, or it’s the cookies that my mother-in-law used to make. They are all important. Use this list as a guide and add your unique touch to it. Make it fun for your whole family!
🎁 Holiday Master Gift Giving List
This one is really important as so many shoppers overbuy and overspend. Make a list before you ever start shopping and stick to it. If you’re like me, you’ll think of a great gift for that special someone, but then wrack my brain trying to remember what it was a month later. Use this gift giving list as a reminder throughout the year.
💲 Holiday Budget
Last but not least, the most important one…drum roll, please! The Holiday Budget Printable is crucial! Why go into the holidays risking increasing your debt. You’ll have to deal with it in January and February! Blech! Set a budget and stick to your guns. Be careful of what you are adding to your cart (in person and online!!) and if you have kids, give them budgets as well. Start talking about money and expectations early.
Although not included in this binder, we did make a 12 Week Christmas Savings Challenge that you can download for free to help you save ahead of the holidays. You have three levels of savings goals, depending on your personal situation. No matter what, give up a few coffee shop drinks and start saving.
You can print this in black and white if you want to save ink or don’t have a color printer. You will go FILE->PRINT-> then click BLACK AND WHITE as your option.
You will click on the “download here” button below and it will automatically download for you.
