Take the stress out of the holidays with this Christmas Planner free printable. It’s exactly what you need to get organized so you can enjoy all the festivities.
I started Christmas shopping in September. Call me crazy or uber-prepared, if you like. Either way, I’m getting stuff done at my own pace so I can relax when Christmas finally arrives.
I was always this organized. I remember a few years ago leaving all my preparations to the last minute. I had to run to the mall a few days before to buy all my gifts. At that point, it was too late for online shopping.
This year, I’m doing 99% of my shopping online. The malls and box stores are just too busy. Don’t even get me started on the parking lots.
The good news is that it’s easy to get prepared and I’ve got the tool to help you out. Print out this Christmas Planner (form is at the bottom of the post to get your copy) and you’ll have half the battle done.
So what does it include? Lots!
Christmas Day Planner
This Christmas Day Planner is great for those of you who want to schedule out your activities for Christmas Day. It also includes a section for traditions, other activities and notes.
We usually head over to my parent’s house in the afternoon on Christmas day to open up gifts and then have Christmas dinner.
When my girls were younger, I encouraged them to sleep in because we didn’t want to get up at the crack of dawn to open Santa’s presents.
Now that they are older, they sleep in a little too late! I’m not complaining.
Plan out your entire Christmas menu including appetizers, drinks, side dishes, desserts, main dish and then make your grocery list.
We typically eat turkey with all the sides like mashed potatoes, turnips, Grandma’s Pineapple Cheese Salad, roasted veggies and dinner rolls. For dessert, it’s always pumpkin pie and my mom’s butterscotch meringue pie. Sooo good!
Online Shopping Tracker
This Online Shopping Tracker is a huge help to me since I do most of my shopping online. My memory isn’t great so I can easily forget what I already bought if I don’t write it down.
I like that this tracker also lets you keep tabs on shipments so you can easily spot an item that has delayed shipping. I order lots from the USA and shipping is so slow sometimes. Items can get stuck at the border and take forever to arrive.
In fact, I’ve had some items NEVER arrive and I had to follow up with the merchant for a refund.
Christmas Card Tracker
Do you send out Christmas cards to family and friends? I used to without fail every year. I haven’t in a few years though, but I’d like to get back into the practice. It’s always nice to receive mail.
It’s easy to forget to buy stocking stuffers. Been there, done that. Oops!
This Stocky Stuffer tracker ensures you won’t make the same mistake as me.
This Gift Planner makes it easy to figure out WHO you are buying for and record all the important details in one central spot. I like that you can set a budget for each person, too.
