What To Consider When Buying A Christmas Planner

The biggest challenge with buying a Christmas Planner is choosing one that’s going to be useful as well as looking the part!

Take a minute to think about which sections you’ll want included.  Check if there’s some free pages for your own category lists.  Does it fit in your bag when you’re out Christmas shopping … if you’re planning to risk taking it out and about, that is 😉

You might also want to check if the planner has a few envelopes / folders inside to store receipts and other loose papers.
