Review:The No-Stress Holiday Organizer: An All-In-One Guide to Planning and Recording Your Holidays

What do we want for Christmas? To get organized! This book is designed to make your plans for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years enjoyable for you as much as for your guests. With calendars, checklists, budget sheets, guest lists, planning tips

This is definitely a Five-Star book! Unlike typical holiday organizers, this book features three months: November, December, and January. After all, the holiday season really DOES start after Halloween, right? The thoroughness of each section is also awesome with pages, lists and calendars for every single itty-bitty detail necessary to make entertaining a snap. The first pages are a three-month at-a-glance calendar. The rest of the book is divided into three sections--one section per month. There is a monthly calendar at the beginning of each section, then a To Do list, then a budget and decorations lists, followed by guest lists, party planning, photo pages, menu pages, things to make and buy, shopping lists, recipes, thoughtful anecdotes...whew!! And many more excellent pages.

Another thing that I liked about this book and its set-up is that the pages are in chronological order. First, you have a calendar to determine when the festivities will be scheduled. Then the budget page is next. Too often we forget to budget for the holidays and end up maxing out the credit cards. Guest list is next and then decorations and menu and so on. This is the order that I would use to coordinate a party myself.....well, if I was more organized, lol. Next year, I'm buying this book in October so I'll be ready for the holidays way ahead of time!
