Christmas Organizing

Christmas is such a special time of year for me.  With all the presents, the parties, the Christmas cards and we can not forget the holiday baking.   They all add to the special time of year, but they also can bring stress.  In the past I used to be frazzled by the time December 24th  came around.  I was cranky and felt rushed.  That is until I started making my own Christmas Planner.   It is important to get yourself organized so you can enjoy the holidays and not feel so stress out over them.  A Christmas organizer or binder is one way to do this.  They store your Christmas card records, present records and party menus so you have them all in one place.

There are so many ways to go about making your own planner like I do each year.  For instance try to make a binder out of a composition book like this one or the one pictured below.


You can do a binder like I do.  Just grab some special Christmas scrapbook paper and decorate a 1 1/2'' binder add some dividers.   Like this


When I started making my binders I used to go to Christmas Planner. com  to get all my free downloadable  forms to fill my binder.  I don't think I will ever go back to the days of not having a binder.  It's so nice to have everything in one place.   Happy Organizing
