I know we are still in November but with the way this year has been Christmas will be here in no time (I know, I’m sorry, I didn’t really want to acknowledge that either).
Most years I think about Christmas and all the things I need to do, and then move on and do nothing. Then one morning I wake up and realise it’s almost here and I have done nothing. Let the panic, mad rush and stress begin!
This year, since I am working so hard to improve so many aspects of my life, I decided it was time to sort out this Christmas chaos once and for all. I knew I needed a way to get organised this Christmas but I had no idea how I was going to achieve that, what I did know though was that I would he doing it in my bullet journal. I had decided I need a list of people I want to buy gifts for, ideas of what to buy them, somewhere to write down ideas of what I want ( because I can never think of things when people ask me), a way to keep track of other shopping I need to do and also all the bits and pieces I need to get done. With all that and more in mind, I headed to Instagram for some ideas and inspiration.
You can see above what I came up with. I am happy with it. It has a space for all the info I need, and I love the gift tag idea. This spread perfectly suits me, but we are all different so here are some of the other fantastic ideas I found out there.
Spread the Joy
Why not add a Christmas quote page to your journal? It’s a great way to set the mood and bring a little joy to your day. A quote page is also a great way to get creative and take a little time for yourself.
Here is another great idea, a quote page and a list of your favourite Christmas songs. We all have them, even those of us who don’t like traditional carols. So why not list them and make sure they all make the play list this year.
Getting all your planning done in your bujo will make life much easier at this crazy time of year. Are you a big Christmas decorator, have a long wish list, lots of things to do, gift ideas for all the family Here are some solutions to keeping track of it all.
The Time has Come
Once all the planning is done and Christmas is here you want to enjoy the festivities. Changing up your planning so that each day has a dedicated page is a great way to make sure all those social occasions are booked in and you aren’t double booked anywhere. Make sure to plan a little time for yourself too.
The final thing I want to say is have fun and do what works for you. Remember as always, there are no rules in your bullet journal. So, go crazy and embrace the silly season.
Happy creating 🐝
