This week, I’m over at Productivity Your Way and since the theme of the month at The Mom Writes is all about getting organized for the holidays, I’m carrying it forward by talking about how to make a Holiday Planning Notebook, quite similar to a Home Management Notebook. A holiday planning notebook, as fancy as that may sound, is actually a simple binder with worksheets to help you stay on track with the cleaning, cooking, menu planning, shopping and decorating that the holidays involve. You can either make your own worksheets to sit your family and needs or you can print them off online. Having a planner at hand helps to identify tasks that will need immediate attention, delegation or elimination! ***laughing*** After all, staying happy and peaceful is the essence of this festive time.
Having a holiday planner handy is an easy and effective way of reducing holiday stress, getting organized and enjoying the holidays without feeling rushed, hassled and totally exhausted at the end of it. Best part is, once you have it ready and in order, you can reuse it every year by just adding or removing a few pages.
Mandi has a great Christmas planning ebook along with really useful printables available FREE on the site that can help you get started with your own holiday planning.
So, head on over to Productivity Your Way to read the rest. And please do share your own holiday planning tips and tricks with the rest of us!
