Can you believe it’s almost December already?!
The holiday season can be simply overwhelming. But with a Christmas planner binder, you have the ability to make it so much easier on yourself and your family.
If you’re like me, you start out the season with grand ideas of a perfectly decorated home, perfectly selected gifts (that are within your budget!), and a stress-free Christmas dinner. That dream lasts about a week and then all the craziness begins. Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links for your convenience. Read my full disclosure policy here for more details.

Or at least that’s what I used to do.
Now I stay a lot more focused – both with staying on task and staying within our budget – by using a Christmas Planner Binder. And I’m sharing it with you today. It’s much like the Thanksgiving Planner I shared with you in this post.
Let’s Get Started
What You’ll Need
Start with Printables
You can get free printables by filling out the form at the bottom of this post. Download the file, print it out and put it in a binder. But that’s just the beginning of creating your own reusable Christmas Binder. After you insert the free printables here, be sure to include your own favorite Christmas recipes in the binder too. Leave your original recipe in its place, make a copy of it, and put the copy in your Christmas Binder. No more searching high and low for Grandma’s sugar cookie recipe at the last minute! Include a photo of the finished cookies and you’ll actually have a time capsule of great memories down the road.
What else would help you stay organized?
Maybe add a section in the binder for addresses for Christmas cards. A list of your family’s traditions. A reminder of where that one decoration is that won’t fit in the usual storage area. Ideas for service projects.
Gift a Binder
How wonderful and thoughtful would this binder be for a gift! Assemble one and gift it to your adult children who are out on their own. They would absolutely LOVE to have the family’s Christmas recipes printed out and handy for them to include in their own celebrations.
So are you ready to get organized this Christmas?
Simply print off this free printable Christmas Planner and start planning your stress-free holiday. I’m certain it will help you find your balance of getting your to-do lists done and still create memories with your family. Your binder may be small this year, and that’s great because you won’t be overwhelmed trying to create it. But year after year, as you use it and add to it, it will become invaluable!
