The trick to staying organized during the holiday season is to stay organized. With Christmas around the corner, it’s important to get ready now. Starting your gift shopping and making your lists now will save you time and stress in December. Use each of the printables below to help you stay organized.
1. Grocery List
I love a good grocery list. With all the meals you plan to make and your Christmas backing, you need a list.
Print this list once or many times to help you keep track of what you need to get at the store.
In our family, I make just one big meal, enough to feed lots of people because I love leftovers.
For Christmas dinner, I make a turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, stuffing, waldorf salad, cranberry sauce, and sometimes green bean casserole.
I keep it simple and used boxed stuffing, canned corn, and cranberry sauce.
Dinner Shopping List
- boxed stuffing
- cranberry sauce
- canned corn
- red delicious apples
- green beans (canned, frozen or fresh)
- mushroom soup (condensed)
- Dried onion toping
- dinner rolls
Even though I only make one big meal, I make lots of Christmas cookies. To make sure my pantry and fridge are ready for my baking needs.
- butter (better to get this a few weeks before you need it because one year the store was out the week I wanted to bake)
- chocolate chips
- skor bits
- brown sugar
- powdered sugar
- sweetened condensed milk
- raspberry jam (for these cookies)
- frozen pie shells
- cookie tin

3. Chore Chart
Christmas is a busy time of year but chores still need to get done. If you are planning on having people over, then more chores may need to get done.
Don’t do it all alone.
Get all the family involved in getting the house clean. The chore chart includes space for all family members. That way, everyone knows what they have to do on which days.
Below is what my chore chart looks like.
4. Weekly Schedule
If your family is anything like mine, the weeks coming up to Christmas are full of special events, concerts, shopping, and much more.
Keep everything organized with a Weekly Schedule. You can print this schedule as many times as you want. It will help you organize your week and help you accomplish everything on your to-do list.
December and Christmas can be a crazy time of year, but with planning and some simple tools, you can reclaim the season, reduce your stress and enjoy the season.
