Did anyone else tear down their Halloween decorations the day after Halloween? Guilty! Now I am trying to decide, do I leave out a few pumpkins and put up a few Thanksgiving pieces? Or do I jump straight to Christmas? Usually I wait until December 1st, but I am feeling a little festive this year! Anyone else have this same debate going on in their head?
Speaking of Christmas I am super excited to announce that I now have a printable Christmas Planner available on Etsy! I have been scheming for awhile about working on my very own paper shop on Etsy. This printable Christmas planner is just the start, but I have lots of plans for the shop in the future! The Christmas organizer is 50 pages, and includes everything you will need to stay on top of things during the holiday season.

Printable Christmas Planner Daily/Weekly Tasks
My Christmas planner calendar includes Sunday and Monday start dates, as well as daily and weekly to-do lists. There are also Christmas Eve and Christmas Day planners, a page for notes, and 8 weekly Countdown to Christmas pages. My regular planner that I use the other 10-11 months of the year just does not have enough space in it for all of the things that need to happen in November and December. This planner gives you plenty of room to write down and plan out everything you need to accomplish during this busy time of year.
Christmas Budgeting and Gift Lists
All of these gift trackers and shopping trackers really help keep me organized during Christmas. They are one of my favorite things about this printable Christmas planner! With five people in our family, plus grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, teachers, etc., I need everything in one place or else I forget what I’ve purchased! Although now that my kids are older I have to be careful about leaving my lists laying around. I don’t want to ruin any surprises before the big day!
I have to admit that I am not good at budgeting around Christmas. These budgeting sheets will be the perfect thing to keep me from overspending this year!
Christmas Meal Planning
I meal plan year round, but I seem to need extra help and motivation in November and December. Not only are there multiple large meals that we plan, but with all of the extra events our weeknights and weekend nights are more hectic than normal. I 100% honestly believe that meal planning has made my life SO much easier. Most nights I know what we are eating, and have all of the ingredients on hand. 20-30 minutes is all it takes per week for me to be prepared to feed my family!
And Much, Much More!
Take a peek at my Etsy shop for a full list of everything included in this 50 page printable Christmas planner. From Christmas card organization, to party planning, to decorating plans, and even a habit tracker, you will be set with everything you need to organize and plan this Christmas season!
I printed my planner at home on regular white printer paper. You could also print it on cardstock. I like this white cardstock from Amazon. I hole punched on the left side and placed the sheets into a white three ring binder. Mine has a clear pocket on the front that I can stick one of the cover pages in. I love that I can print multiple pages for the sheets I will use the most such as recipes, gift lists, the daily/weekly to-do sheets, etc.
Another option would be to use a local professional printer to print and potentially bind your Christmas planner.
I would love any feedback on my planner so that I can improve future products. And stay tuned for more products in my shop closer to the new year!
