I am a list kind of girl. To-do lists, shopping lists, menu plan lists, ideas lists, address lists… it goes on and on. Especially when I’m busy… and who isn’t busy during the holiday season, right? So, I decided to try and save myself some sanity and begin this crazy season a little more organized than I normally am. Enter the Holiday Hubbub Binder. Well, mine is actually a folder, but it has already saved me a few headaches. Or at least it’s kept all my scheming in one general place. In my folder I have pages that I designed to help me organize my holiday planning. There are budget sheets, menu plan calendars, calendars for the everyday stuff, lists of gift ideas I’ve been collecting, addresses I need to send out holiday cards, lists of my family and their clothing sizes, hobbies and things they like. There’s even a page for me to write down things I want (in case My Mr Right should get stumped this gift giving season) and a place to keep receipts (in case anything needs to go back to the store). My folder contains 19 pages. And it’s been a lifesaver!
For your free downloading enjoyment, I have an abbreviated version of my organizer available HERE. It contains calendars, a page to organize your gift lists, an address collector, the thank you list to keep track of the gifts you are given, and a to-do list. If you’re having a hard time with 4shared, make sure you are logged in. Don’t have an account? It’s free to sign up and then you’ll have access to download things hosted on the site. (P.S. I’m not affiliated with 4shared in anyway. I just like the user interface for their site and so that’s what I use.)
If you would like the whole 18 page version of my organizer, it’s available HERE. It’s a printable and I will email the file to you within 12 hours. It contains everything in the free version, plus a RECEIPTS page, a budget organizer page, wish list page, menu plan calendars, gift buying guide information sheet, and individual gift organizers.
