Plan It! Get Organized With Christmas Checklists

For many of us, having the tools, in the form of a Christmas planner, isn't enough. We need more: a road map to an organized Christmas. Enter Christmas planning checklists! Christmas planning checklists help focus and zero in on holiday chores. Checking off each step of holiday preparations makes it easy to get organized for the holiday season. Christmas planning checklists simplify the holidays by focusing preparations on one step at a time.
