I printed up the sheets from Holiday Grand plan. I am adding them to my notebook & plan to add a little extra decorative stuff here & there.
I am also fading fast & feeling as though I need a nap.
DGS2 is at his mother's so I do have time to disinfect stuff before his return. We certainly don't need him getting sick because he has breathing/asthma issues as it is.
I did watch planner process videos & saw a woman who was doing the Holiday Grand Plan. Maybe that's what I need to do a search for. :)

Not yet... I'm hoping to get to it next week. I have an old Franklin Planner 5.5 by 8.5 binder that zips shut that I've been using. It's been broken for a few years. I'm thinking of replacing it. I'm not sure if I'll go with the same size binder from an office supply store, a larger binder or back to the zippered binder. There is a huge price difference between zippered and non-zippered.

I have updated my household binder. It contains the HGP, emergency evacuation plan, master lists for emergency kit supplies and what foods we need to pack in case of evacuation. It contains some personal papers like habit tracker and goals.
The only thing I need to add are photos that I will take of the rooms of the house so I can show items in case the insurance company ever needs an inventory.

I've pulled my notebook/planner (regular 3-ring binder in green, with a place in front where I can put in a cover sheet for they year -- if I get motivated). I've updated the calendar pages, weeded out old lists that contain standard stuff, and transferred important details to a new list for that week (i.e. furnace filter size, so I don't have to go digging). In previous years, I made extra copies of the weekly list pages, so I only needed to print out one or two of those. I've got my Week 1 HGP to-do list already started, so I'll be ready to dig in next week. Let the fun begin!

I have a very basic ringbinder with sections dedicated to recipes/gifts/hgp etc. I do a bit of work on it every week in terms of updating or adapting it.
It's not pretty, but it is functional!

That is all we need. I see all these pretty planners and have planner envy but in the end it needs to work for me.

Mine is a three ring binder, too. I want to be all creative and fancy, but God didn't choose to give me that talent and ability. Plus, I don't have the time to do all that.

I used to think when my children were grown I would have more time. Nothing could be further from the truth! lol When they were home, we could take care of all matters under one roof. Now, they live in three different towns (DS lives in the same town as us), but close enough they still call on Mama and Daddy when they need some extra help with projects, etc. Throw into that two grandsons who are active in sports whose games we attend and seldom miss one...

As Katrina and Rabble said...its not pretty, but it's functional. I do have a nice fabric covered journal that a lot of my thoughts and notes go into concerning Christmas that I want to keep permanently year to year. My printed stuff goes in the binder.
