Christmas Planner Template
I use both paper planners and digital planners depending on what I am doing. This year I nerded out and created a complete Christmas Planner Template because digital planners win every time there are numbers to be added. Christmas lists and budgets and meals are items that are just complicated enough to need a digital Christmas Planner Template. I can't imagine adding up my budget by hand or erasing and re-adding the numbers every time a change is made.
If you, however, prefer paper even when numbers are involved, check out Stress Less this Christmas for a link to a beautiful paper Christmas Planner created by a friend of mine.
Otherwise, read on to find out how to completely organize your Christmas meals, gift lists, budget, and more with my Christmas Planner Template.

This Christmas Planner Template was created to be used with a FREE AirTable Account. AirTable is a super cool organization system that is kinda like a spreadsheet system, but WAY BETTER!! Cells can be formatted to be checkboxes, multiple choice items, dates, times, text, and more. This is awesome for Christmas organization because you need to plan meals and other gatherings, make grocery lists, make gift lists, decide on a budget, and it sure does help if your lists can talk to each other.
The ability for the sheets to talk to each other is one of the coolest things about AirTable.
You make a list of recipients on one sheet, then you are able to choose the recipient on your Black Friday, Cyber Monday and other shopping sheets.
THEN, it gets even better. The gifts will also appear by the recipient on the Gift Recipient sheet.
You can plan your meals by occasion. It does not even have to be a full meal. You could set up a meal for the treats you need to bring to your daughter's classroom party.
You will then be able to select which meal or occasion every item on your grocery list goes with.
AirTable is also an APP that you can download on your phone so you will be able to take your lists with you everywhere you go. All the information will sync from your computer to your phone app.
Every good organization system needs a place for a “Brain Dump.” List everything you can think of that you need to get done. If you give it a date, that date will appear on your calendar.
