    Make a Christmas planner

    First and foremost, everyone must make a Christmas playlist. When its snowing outside and everyone is sitting around the dinner table rolling out those pre-made, reindeer and Santa-shaped sugar cookies, listening to rap music or Britney Spears just does not have the same cheery effect. The best Christmas playlists include a variety of songs from different eras. Some basic suggestions: - Santa Baby by Madonna (a good pick if you can get past its creepiness) All I Want for Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey (my all-time favorite, judge all you like) You are A Mean One, Mr. Grinch by Thurl Ravenscroft (gotta get some movie soundtracks in there) Anything from Michael Bubles Christmas album (the mans got a Christmas voice) Notes, checklists and planner forms will help you get organized but only if you can find them! Solution? A simple three-ring binder creates a Christmas planner, a one-stop planning tool that will track and record holiday prep around the year.New Years' sales at the office supply store make it easy to set up a simple notebook as your Christmas planner. Click a set of dividers and a handful of page protectors into a good-sized binder. Add filled-in forms and lists, and as you see recipes, craft ideas, or decor inspiration, tear and tuck torn pages into page protectors.
