I'm kicking off Week Two with my go-to for keeping track of all of the above - my Christmas planner. I have been using a three-ring binder with the Organized Christmas planning pages but this year, I decided to go smaller so that I could keep my planner with me. I joined a Facebook group called Christmas Planner Addicts and decided to go with an A5 Carpe Diem planner that I picked up on Ebay. They used to be available here but it appears that they are no longer available. A5 is a European size, 5.8" x 8.3" with a 6-hole ring mechanism. I purchased a great set of planner inserts - 82 different lists in all - as an instant download from Etsy and I was able to get a package of A5 paper from Amazon.com. I thought I would be able to find a hole punch at my local office supply store and get to work with organizing my planner but there was not a one to be found! I thought I would find one that would be adjustable; there were plenty of those, but they all only had three holes. So, back to Amazon.com, and three days later, an A5 hole punch arrived. I was ready to go.
Here are a few samples from the planner pages instant download that is available here:
