Let’s kick off with Week#1 getting ready and organized for the upcoming holidays with our Christmas/Holiday planner binder :

 

 Step #1 Create a Christmas planner by  purchasing:

One-inch or larger binder

Set of dividers

Pencil pouch to hold coupons and gift cards

 

Step#2 Then begin deciding what sections in your binder you will need.  Here are some ideas:

•    Monthly calendars to keep track of events and tasks to be done.

•    Events and activity information

•    Service projects to participate in during the season

•    Lists of to-do’s

•    Gift lists (past years  and present)

•    Holiday card list

•    Menus and holiday recipes

•    Cookie/baking recipes

•    Celebration/tradition ideas

•    Craft projects

•    Decorating ideas

•    Pictures of your home decorated

  Create sections that work for your Christmas/holiday  planning
