Week by week Christmas Planner

Are you in need of a free Christmas planner?

Look no further!

I’ve put together a really simple, week-by-week Christmas planner to help you plan every step of the way to Christmas day.

Don’t worry if you’ve found this post closer to Christmas than the planner start date of 1 October.

You will still find it a useful way to break down all the tasks that need to be covered off between now and 25th December.

The ultimate Christmas planner

So here it is.

My week-by-week, sanity-saving, Christmas planner.

I’ve developed the planner over the years, so it is tried and tested!

The planner is broken down into manageable chunks.

This stops the paralysis caused by worrying and trying to do everything at once.

I have added the planner list to Cozi, the free family organiser I use.

It’s super easy to set up the basic list and then flesh out detail of what to buy and make as I go along.

If you’re a regular reader you’ll know I always shout about the wonders of Cozi.

It is one of those “OMG how did I survive without you products!”.

To give it a go, check it out here .

Free Christmas planner to download

I’ve also created a free printable download version of the Planner version. It’s all on one sheet, so super easy to use. Grab your free printable download here.

Anyway I hope my Christmas Planner helpa you.

I’ve included links to useful Mums Make Lists Christmas tips posts in it.

  1. Sorry, but that very first item on the first week? I SO WISH! The problem with making decisions like that is it relies so much on other people having made their decisions and that ain’t happening around here, sigh. Oh well, we can only try.

  2. I have already started Xmas shopping (a few months ago in the John Lewis sale actually) and have diligently entered them in my planner. I love Christmas, so the earlier the better for me!

  3. Thank you for the Linky Option! I added my first post in my Christmas Organization series at http://www.mompaperscissors.com Love your list and how simple it is!! 🙂 (Oh-and my family was laughing at me this week as I confirmed addresses for Christmas cards. They won’t be laughing when I’m all ready for Christmas before December even comes!! haha)

  4. Love your list, and it was a huge hit at the party last week. Thank you so much for sharing at A Bouquet of Talent. You had one of the top views at the party from last week!

    I will be back to add my Christmas links, too!

    Hope you are having a fabulous weekend. 🙂

  5. I am not really ready to think about Christmas yet, but having this list will help keep me more organized. Thanks for sharing this at the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. I am sharing this in my Top 10 Favorites post that goes live on Monday morning!

  6. I love all things Christmas! My goal is to be more organized this year. I love how you tackle EVERYTHING Christmas related to try and make less work later on. It’s my sons first birthday the week before Christmas so the more I do now the better.

    I just wrote a guide on how to get Christmas presents in bulk for cheaper. I am almost done and it’s mid-September! That makes Christmas so much less stressful!

  7. This is a great plan but I’ve heard some people shop boxing day sales in preparation of next Christmas and the reps fly out and source from one for the next. If you are creative then mid summer is a starting point. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Wow, you are super organised. I don’t even think about Christmas until December. I remember a couple of years ago, I decided to be organised. By the time December came I had all the presents bought and wrapped and the cards written out. It totally spoilt the build up the Christmas, and I vowed never to do it again lol #TheList

  9. Yes! I LOVE THIS! I am such an organised person, this suits me perfectly. I’ve already started planning lists of presents and working out how I’m going to tackle it this year, setting aside a budget etc. But this list is perfect. Definitely bookmarking! Thank you for sharing it. xx #thelist

  10. I love getting organised for christmas, I need to get on with planning, usually I have abit more of an idea of what I will get the kids, but I am struggling for ideas this year.
