Here is my Holiday Binder. It helps so much!! I still would like to make a few changes but this shows what it looks like. It took me a couple of years of trying and I finally got it in 2005 and it was the best Christmas ever. I really enjoyed the season without any stress. I was packing for a move in 2006 and didn't get to follow it exactly but it still helped. I love Christmas and I try to start shopping in July. I also look for things on clearance or sale. I buy something and put it in my gift closet and I have it for whatever occasion I need something for. I also love to bake goodies for Christmas. I swap recipes with a group and have gotten some really fun stuff to make. I'll be posting them in my group on CafeMom called Heartfelt Holidays. We also talk about the HGP and other holidays too.

This year I want to make it more Christian and add some Bible verses and Christmas stories and such. I love my Keeper of the Home Binder since I redid it. If you would like to see it: http://www.cafemom.com/journals/read.php?post_id=340596

Dear laurakaye,

What a labor of love for your family! I'm sure Christmas was just great!  It seems that you also know the reason for the season... I have but one question. Did you file your different lists printouts with the weeks or in a separate section? I am just finishing my binder today--Sunday is the big kickoff we are having Christmas cookie and punch party on the patio:) so I would appreciate your help.

 

May Our Lord always bless you,

MomfromHeaven

MomfromHeaven,

I file my list printouts under list week so I know where it is when I need to refer back to it. It's easy for me that way.

I would love to do a Sunday brunch! That sounds so exciting!!
