Day Two: #LessStressHolidays at girlwithblog.com

Keeping it simple & practical, and starting early = holiday organization.

Buy a brand-new notebook (bonus points if it has a Christmas cover!) I always grab a cute one from the dollar bins at the craft store. Label it and make this your go-to place for storing notes on all things holidays. Keep it in your purse or in the glove compartment of your car for handy access. Having all your notes – meals, shopping lists, gift ideas, to-do’s, party invites, budgets, passwords, etc. – in one place rather than in mismatched sticky notes strewn about will streamline your desk (and brain!)

There are some super-cute printable planners available as well. This will be my route for Christmas 2015 – I’m going to make a whole binder! With a baby coming at the beginning of Advent, I need all the organizational help I can get. Here are two of my favorite FREE sets: (cute set #1 // cute set #2) They’re so adorable I may use both.

If you’re more of a wired person, I recommend using the Evernote app to keep your brain and planning in order. Available + accessible on all iThings and really slick to sort and organize.

Last tip: do this now, before Thanksgiving meal planning looms and Christmas party invitations arrive. If you don’t already have a gift list started, or a list of activities you’re hoping to do this autumn, it’s time. Grab that notebook, open that app, and get organized before you’re in the thick of it all!
