How To Get Ahead Of The Game With The Ultimate Holiday PlannerThe holidays seem to just get busier and busier, but with The Ultimate Holiday Planner (a brand new planner to help you conquer the holidays with grace), I’m able to get prepared and be ahead of the game.

Don’t you feel so unprepared every year? I know I have felt the same way too!

Each year I felt like things slipped through the cracks and most of that was good quality time spent with my family.

Since my kids have gotten older, they are always running off to spend time with their friends. And then the holidays slip by and we would forget to do some fun stuff together. Like, taking my family on a walk through the Christmas Tree Trail all decorated up with lights and gingerbread.

And then there was always the holiday budget that I missed by a mile. I would get caught up in the “it’s so cute”, and “I can’t remember what I bought my mom this year”, so let me buy these other things, “just in case.”

Overbuying and overspending was a yearly thing, and whatever budget I had set, was always ruined, busted, and trampled into oblivion.

But last year was different. I finally found the missing link. I made some spreadsheets and then downloaded them to my phone which kept me organized right from the start. Not only was I able to keep track of what I needed to buy in the store, but I was able to input my shopping purchases right back into those spreadsheets and it kept track of everything for me!

There was no wondering what I had purchased, no trying to calculate how much left I had to purchase for someone, or when is that package going to arrive! The planner did everything for me! Talk about being a holiday lifesaver!

This is the missing link to making your holiday season a success too!

So let’s dive into The Ultimate Holiday Planner and how it can help you this season.

Because not all holiday planners are the same; this one you can access right from your phone. Easy-Peasy!

Plus, this digital holiday planner will auto-calculate for you, so there’s no guessing how much you’ve spent on your holiday budget.

Here’s 7 ways it will help you have a less stressful holiday season this year.

1. Keep Your Holiday Budget In Check

Whether you are traveling for the holidays or staying at home, The Ultimate Holiday Planner is the best way to keep an eye on your budget.

In order to get a grasp on your budget and the money you’ll need for the season, you’ll need to know how much everything is going to cost you!

This is why the planner is a genius! Not only can you keep tabs on your food costs, your travel costs, but you can also keep tabs on your gift costs. And it keeps a running total so you never have to use precious brand power to worry about what you’ve spent (or have left to spend).

It keeps all those costs in one place so you can keep a pulse on how well your holiday spending is doing, without having to calculate any math.

2. Make A Travel Budget

If you’re traveling this season, you’ll need an estimate of how much you’ll need to be able to make the trip.

From the gas, airline tickets, and even the tips, if you can estimate how much you’ll need to begin with, you can get a head start on saving and planning for the entire trip.

You won’t be forced to use credit cards because you had expenses pop-up that you didn’t think of initially. (Which means NO SURPRISES!)

Plus, The Ultimate Holiday Planner will auto-calculate your estimate into your total holiday budget for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s too.

3. Keep A Gift List Tally & Running Total

How many times have you duplicated a gift or bought too much during the holiday madness? Me too.

With The Ultimate Holiday Planner, you’ll be able to not only write down who you are buying for but also how much you plan to spend on them.

Then, digitally from your phone, you can add purchases into the planner and it will automatically deduct the purchase from the spreadsheets. Giving you a running total of what you’ve spent on your purchases, and how much you’ve spent overall towards your Christmas budget. I think this is the best part of this digital holiday planner because it’s the key to keep you from overspending.

No guessing, no wondering…you can keep it all in the planner and you have access to it on your phone and your computer.

4. Get Your Holiday Dates In Order

The holidays slip by so fast that I often forget things…like mailing out Christmas cards actually before Christmas. (Which means purchasing them a few weeks sooner… and taking a picture a few days before that!)

That’s why I wanted to create this planner so that I could get things planned out so I wouldn’t forget them.

The Ultimate Holiday Planner calendar starts in October (and there are additional trickle-down calendars that start in November and even December in case you start later) and gives you a teeny-tiny item to do every day to keep you on track so that you accomplish everything your heart desires during the holiday and minimize the stress.

Whether it’s scheduling when to pick up Aunt Linda from the airport, or making sure to pick up stamps (and address them) to get those Christmas cards out on time, you’ll be able to plan those dates out well in advance, so nothing gets forgotten.

Ahhhh, finally I could breathe easier knowing that nothing was slipping through the cracks.

5. Meal Planning, Grocery, And Shopping Lists

Do you find that you are always running out of food or you forget to meal plan during the holidays?

Do you eat out way too much busting your budget? This is one reason why I love using The Ultimate Holiday Planner.

Not only does it include some great meal planning sheets, but there’s also a recipe organizer list so you’ll be prepared for all that holiday baking.

And, with the Holiday Prep Calendar, I’ve scheduled it so that you’ll have extra meals to use during the month of December so you don’t get overwhelmed by all the extra cooking.

What about holiday dinners? Don’t worry, you’re covered with holiday food calculators so you know how much you’ll need to buy especially when Uncle Bob wants to bring his +1 or +6!

The Ultimate Holiday Planner takes the guesswork out of the meal planning game so you’ll know what you need and how much, to have one less stressful thing taken care of during the holidays! YAY!

6. Plan Your Gift Shopping

The Ultimate Holiday Planner not only helps you plan the gifts you’ll be shopping for, but it also helps you keep tabs on what you bought so you can keep an eye out when it should arrive.

You can plan what stores you still need to buy certain items from, keep an eye on when items will be shipped, and everything!

With tabs for Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping, you’ll be well organized for all your holiday shopping needs.

Can you see how it’s a game-changer to reduce holiday stress?

7. Family Goals & Holiday Plans

Another great thing to track in your planner is any goals or plans you have for your family during this season.

Purposely set apart quality family time this season. You can easily do that with the Ultimate Holiday Planner Prep Clendar.

Start by talking with your family and set aside certain days and events just to do together.

Are you wanting to volunteer this season? Plan it by choosing a date and writing it down in your calendar.

What about a family game night or Christmas movie marathon? Plan it by choosing a date and writing it down in your calendar.

What about doing the Jesse Tree? Or starting a devotional this holiday season? These things can all be added to your holiday planner so you don’t forget to do them. And everyone in your family is on the same page as to what’s happening.

So I hope you’ve learned all about The Ultimate Holiday Planner and how it can help you this season.
