Congrats!  You’ve been working hard to implement steps 1 – 8 in our “Create a Stress Free Holiday Season”.  But, if you are anything like many of my clients, you have your holiday papers & ideas in various places.

  • You might have some ideas written on post-it notes stuck in your calendar.
  • Possibly a few coupons on the refrigerator, other coupons in your purse, still others on your desk.
  • Some recipes near the oven, others in your grandmother’s recipe book, still other saved on Evernote & Pinterest.
  • Your holiday calendar is on your desk, the holiday task list on the fridge.
  • Gift ideas are stashed in the car.
  • Your address list for Christmas Cards is sitting near the TV – so you can address cards while watching your favorite shows.

I’m encouraging you today to create a Holiday Notebook.  Gather all the bits and pieces from your holiday planning and put everything in one place.  This way – you only have one place to look – plus, next year your stress free strategies will be easier to implement because they are all in one place.

Note – Your “holiday notebook” does not need to be an actual notebook.  Some of my clients use a box, others a folder, others a big manila envelope for receipts and keep their lists on Google Drive, still others utilize Evernote.  Pick what feels most comfortable to you.

Just pick something!
