Holiday Organizer

I'm sure everyone out there has been asking the same question...but I'll ask anyway. Are you ready for Christmas?

Let me start off by saying, I'm NOT one of those ultra-organized people who buys all their gifts and wraps them all by the end of Thanksgiving weekend. (OK, if you know me really well, you can get up off the floor and stop laughing now!) Nor do I calculate down to the last penny how much I've spent on each individual, making sure that everything is exactly equal. 

But I am a total list-maker. I could probably pull out my purse right now & find at least 3 different lists...groceries, "to-do's," recipes, you name it. And I know at this time of year, there are a ton of store coupons, sale flyers, etc. 

So to help myself stay a little more organized for Christmas, I made this nifty little Holiday Organizer. Yay Me!!

I just used a red composition notebook and added some pockets & tabs to the pages.

Pocket for coupons - very important!!

Calendar page...also a key item

Receipt pocket...just in case

Tabs along the side for:

To Do Lists
Gift Lists

So now I can breath a sigh of relief knowing I'm a little bit more organized for Christmas! Whew!
