As much as it is important to have a great Christmas, it is also important to put things in place so as to get the desired Christmas atmosphere.
It can be super difficult to be organized during Christmas. During Christmas, there’s always so much to do that sometimes, things just end up being really disorganized.
Butttttttttttttt, I got you.
And today, I will be sharing some tips on how to have a more organized Christmas! Let’s dive into how to have a more organized Christmas!
1. start shopping early
The first on my list of how to have a more organized Christmas is to start shopping early!
If you want to have a more organized Christmas, shopping early is a must! I once shopped late for Christmas and it was so not funny.
There’s always this great panic and rush that comes with late Christmas shopping and it sucks.
Shopping early allows you to calm down, get what you need. It also saves you the stress of last minute rush.
2. get a Christmas planner
I find planners so helpful. Oh my God! They always come through for me.
Getting a Christmas planner is a fab way to get all your shit together as a Christmas planner will help you identify and itemize what you need and what you do not need.
I got myself a lovely printable Christmas planner this year and it has been super helpful.
So far, it has helped me put together a list of the things I need for Christmas, how I want Christmas to look like this year and lots more.
A planner is a must for a more organized Christmas!
Ever had things lying around everywhere? Clutter brings confusion!
A cluttered environment leads to a cluttered and disorganized mind and people with cluttered minds are hardly organized. Also, a disorganized person cannot create an organized Christmas atmosphere.
As you go along with your Christmas planning, it is very important to set a cleaning or decluttering schedule.
Decluttering will help free up space, make things more organized, make space for Christmas decoration, etc. If you must have an organized Christmas, decluttering is a great way to start!

4. have a Christmas budget
Yes you want to have a great Christmas, you have all the funds and that’s fab. But, a Christmas without a budget will leave you spending all the money you have.
A lack of budget is one of the reasons people end up facing heavy debts after Christmas but a Christmas budget will help curb your spending and it will help you spend only on the necessary.
5. make a schedule for Christmas day
Christmas day is always filled with so many activities and it is normal to get caught up in one thing so much that you forget to do the other and stuffs like that.
But, making a schedule and a detailed plan of the things you want to do on Christmas day, and allocating time to each item on the schedule will help you have a more organized Christmas.
6. have a menu plan for Christmas day
Last, but not the least on my list of how to have a more organized Christmas is to have a menu plan for Christmas day.
It is very important to have a specific menu plan for Christmas day. Having a menu plan will help you know exactly what ingredient you need to buy, how much it will cost and an estimate of how much time you will need to prepare the food.
It is better to start your menu plan by deciding what type of food you want to have on Christmas or asking your family members what they would love to have for Christmas.
Add the deserts, appetizers, side dishes and everything food you’ll love to have on Christmas day then calculate what you’ll need to buy and how much money and time you’ll need.
Here are some tips on how to have a more organized Christmas. I put these tips into practice and they always work for me! What’s are other ways to have an organized Christmas?
