Free Holiday Planning Kits Are Here!



The holidays can be stressful if you don't get ahead of the chaos and commotion. It seems like with each passing year, we all get a little busier and consumed with balancing our schedules for both work and personal obligations.

My everyday planner, designed by Fringe, is spiral-bound (a must!!!), a manageable 5"x 8" which is a perfect size for my purse or bag but still large enough for me to write in my work obligations/deadlines, etc. I prefer to keep only one planner for my personal and work life. and tend to stay more on task and by keeping all of my appointments and deadlines in one location. However, to organize myself (and my personal life) during the holidays, I use a separate binder to help me plan and ensure that things so as smoothly as possible. To me, the worst feeling in the world is being unprepared or caught off guard.

Last year, I used a holiday planner from Laura over at OrgJunkie.com. You can see my post about the planner here. 

For 2018, I'm loving The Scattered Squirrel and the a la carte options/docs on her web page.  My favorite printables are Hostess Cheat Sheet and Holiday Preparations. These whimsical printables from Domestic Executive Online include free printable gift tags, activities, baking, dinner, and gift planners as well as card tracking sheets. 

This planner from Nina Hendrick will keep you organized from November 1 until New Years Day.


If you create your own lists/organizers but need a cover for your binder, Organized Christmas some really cute options. You can view them here. 

Another goodie that I have to share is from a talented artist named Victoria Thatcher. Victoria has created hundreds of printable theme sets for paper planners (and Cricut!!!) that are free for you to download. She literally has hundreds of themes to choose from including Disney, NFL, Avengers, holidays, TV Shows, and (my personal favorite), a theme for the 2018 Hallmark Christmas Movies schedule! All of the themes I mentioned (and dozens of others) are available for free download on Victoria's webpage. When you land on her webpage, click on each of these options to see all of the design sets- EC1, EC2, Big HP, and Cricut. She also has a variety of other social media platforms including Pinterest for you to visit and follow.
