The holiday season can bring overwhelm and stress, but that is not the way it should be. A little planning can go a long way and can help us focus on the real meaning of the season: our Savior’s birth!

I cannot promise you a stress-free holiday season, but I can encourage you to step back and focus on what matters the most. While it can be easy to get caught up in the busyness of the season, I have found that planning ahead and staying organized minimizes the stress. It helps to keep my focus on the real joy of the season and helps me enjoy celebrating with family and friends.

I am excited to share my Christmas Planner with you. It’s a 12 page printable planner that is available here. Many of the planners I have come across feel so hectic, so I wanted to create a simple version. I left off the pictures and icons to help save your printer ink.

I hope you find it helpful to plan ahead, get organized, stay under budget, enjoy your traditions, and create memories with your family.

  1. I’ve been thinking lately that being organized would be easy if it didn’t require maintenance! I can organize anything once . . . but it doesn’t stay that way unless I keep at it consistently. As for Christmas organization, my husband has created a gift-tracking sheet in Excel that we add to each year to remember what we gave each person. It also has our budgeted amounts listed, so we can keep our choices within what we have available.

    • Ah yes. Maintenance. ;) But keeping on top of it helps it from getting too crazy!

      Your Excel spreadsheet sounds like a great idea! Especially if you keep track of past years, that would be so convenient each year. I always love a good spreadsheet. :)

  2. Great idea! Visiting from the Pat and Candy linkup, and loving your concept. I def need more organization in my life! Can’t wait to read more, thanks so much for your work.

  3. One thing I discovered a couple of years ago is that if I buy something on clearance after Christmas, I may forget that I have it (and buy it again!), or I may not be able to find it . . .
    So, I have begun writing post-Christmas clearance purchases in my next year’s November calendar page: what I bought and WHERE I PUT IT! Then when I start wondering about buying things for the next Christmas in November, I”ll know what I already have.

    • That is a great system for keeping track of the clearance purchases! Otherwise it’s easy for them to be forgotten. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Hi there Emily, thanks for sharing these amazing printables with us. I sure do agree, the more we can be organized, the more we can focus on the true meaning of Christmas. Being all about Christmas cards (and letter writing in general) I just love that you’ve thought of a printable for keeping track of christmas cards! Luv! Visiting via #SITSSharefest. Lovely to meet you.

  5. This looks great and I agree it is good to be organised and prepared. You have done an excellent job here. Thanks for sharing with us at Good Morning Mondays. Blessings
