The 2017 Christmas Planner: Your Complete Holiday Planning Workbook

2017 Christmas Planning Workbook | the Krafty Owl

 

The holiday season is only weeks away and I don’t know about you but I want things to be as simple as possible this time of year. It’s so easy to get caught up in the preparations for everything that we tend to forget what’s most important ~ our families and our traditions!

The 2017 Christmas Planner: Your Complete Holiday Planning Workbook is filled to the brim with everything you need to organize and simplify the holidays so you can enjoy quality time with your friends and family.

It was designed as a “coloring” planner so you can choose the color scheme and set the holiday mood you desire by coloring the images yourself.

The beginning of your planner is all about setting goals and preserving your holiday traditions and maybe creating some new ones. It’s especially important to involve your entire family in this part as much as possible so you can find out what everyone is most excited about this time of year. Take everyone’s suggestions into consideration and let majority rule over which activities you decide to do.

The next step is to create your holiday budget. Be realistic here, take a look at your finances and decide how much money you can set aside for Christmas without relying on credit cards.

It’s very important to do this step before you start dreaming about gift ideas, new decorations for your home and events you want to attend with your family.

Start listing out everything you plan to purchase this holiday season. Your list should include all expenses including food, travel, decorations, cards, donations, entertainment, gifts and anything related to those things.

Once you have a list of everything you plan to buy this season you can start filling in the estimated column of your Holiday Budget Worksheet.

After you’ve decided how much you can spend you can start planning out your November and December calendars. Take time to record all the important dates you already know about – family events, school concerts, parties etc.

When creating your calendar try to remember that it’s about finding a way to manage your schedule so you can do the things you love without getting stressed.

The baking and menu sections of the 2017 Christmas Planner are perfect to plan everything from appetizers to desserts.

There are separate printable recipe cards for both the baking and menu sections. I suggest printing them on cardstock if you’re going to cut them out.

It can be very easy to go overboard with gifts, especially when it comes to our children at Christmas. Take some time to jot down your ideas for who you will need to buy gifts for this year, what you want to purchase and what your budget is for each person. There are detailed gift planners included in the 2017 Christmas Planner.

Online ordering has become more popular than ever and is super convenient but you need to keep track of the shipments so you know if you don’t receive them. I love the Online Order Tracker to log my purchases and track shipments. I use something just like this to keep track of my other online purchases throughout the year.
