Things I Know… I Have Christmas Planning Sorted….


This is what I know this week in regards to Christmas…. 79 Days today and Counting!

As you know, myself and Tina from Tina Gray{dot) me are doing weekly blog posts about 100 Days to Christmas, so be sure to check them out!

So any readers of my blog would know that I LOVE Christmas, I love everything about Christmas, the planning, shopping, seeing all the decorations out in the shops in October and having our Christmas traditions!

Like a lot of families I like to get started early, so I always start my Christmas shopping early in the June sales! Even now with all the Christmas decorations out in the shops, I’m loving being able to pick up little bits and pieces each week so its not going to be expensive right in the middle of December!

I’ve blogged before about the best way I find to get organised is using a Christmas Planner and how it becomes the central place for everything Christmas related.  I really believe that having a Christmas Planner makes organising and getting ready for Christmas, so much easier! Its naturally a stressful time of year, and having a planner can make it so much less stressful! And if you read my blog each week, I’m showing you nice and easy ways to be ready for Christmas before it arrives!!

Enter the ultimate Christmas Planner from The Organised Housewife!

Ultimate Christmas Planner by The Organised Housewife $9.95

What I know that I love about this planner over other planners is that besides being beautifully presented, it also includes everything one needs to get through the holidays stress free. I’m all about stressfree!

The planner is divided into sections

- Calendar for October – December

- Weekly Planner

- Christmas Card List

- Budget Planning

- Gift Planning for Family and Friends

- Traditions

Each week I’ll be spending time on my planner and adding everything all my Christmas Ideas to it, I’ve also created a little file for all my “pieces” of  Christmas ideas that I print online or cut out from magazines.

The red folder contains every piece of paper Christmas related!

The exercise book, is where I have all the presents and layby dockets for the kids presents, so I can see everything all in one spot.

You can purchase The Organised Housewife’s Planner by clicking on the link up on the top right hand side of my blog.

So how is your Christmas planning going? Have you started or are you all done?

Are you getting excited!!

  6. Gosh I’m such a slacker when it comes to planning! I mean Master 5′s birthday is next month and I’m still struggling to find the theme or place to hold his party. Especially when it entails inviting his whole class!! Eeek! And now I have to get Christmas sorted!! Glad there’s this Christmas planner that will hopefully get me all organised.
