Christmas in July: Christmas Planner + Printables
|July 23, 2013||Filled under DIY, Green Holidays, Printables|
I have to confess, I am already thinking about Christmas. Christmas is my favorite time of the year. Every year I say I’m going to start planning early so that when the holiday season gets here, I can relax and enjoy it. Every year I fail at this. We have less than six months until Christmas now and I have done anything? Nope. I mean I’ve pinned some stuff on Pinterest but if that counted as doing something I would be winning awards for housewife of the year.
So now it’s time to get serious if this year isn’t going to be another failure. Several weeks ago I shared my home management binder with you but I have one more section to share, the holiday section. I’m really hoping this will help kick me in the butt to get ahead on everything.
Here is what I have in my holiday section in my household binder-
- Calendar- October through December
- Thanksgiving Baking Planner
- Christmas To-Do List
- Holiday Project List
- Christmas Card Worksheet
- Mailing List
- Christmas Gift Ideas
- Christmas Shopping List
- Gift Giving Tracker
- Christmas Order Tracking
- Cooking Plan
- Baking List
- Christmas Baking Planner
- Christmas Family Traditions
- Holiday Movie List
- Christmas Thank You Cards
So now that I’m organized it’s time to spend less time on Pinterest and more time crafting. This will seem crazy to some but sometimes when I need a push to get stuff ready for Christmas, I listen to Christmas music or watch a Christmas movie, maybe it’s time to pull out Home Alone.
Have any of you gotten started on things for the holidays? I’d love to know what helps motivate you to be prepared for the holiday season. Also be sure to check out my Green Holiday Guide board for eco-friendly gifts, crafts, and recipes.
