Christmas card list – While it may be summer and no one is really thinking about Christmas, it is never too early to start preparing. No, it is not necessary to go out and buy gifts or start the cooking chores.
However, there is one thing, something you have probably been meaning to do for a long time that can make the holiday season a little less hectic.
You can start to get your Christmas card list in order. This is something you may have attempted, but never completed or got started. You may have three or four address books around the house, each with a few names of people you send cards to each year. Perhaps you have a small file box with index cards with old addresses and phone numbers. There may be outdated information that has been erased and replace with more current information.
The “Christmas Card List” template, built on the Microsoft Excel® platform can make your life a whole lot easier.
Look at what this template will do and help you do.
There is a column for everything you need to record including last name, first name, relationship, street address, city and zip and contact number. There is also a column for card sent, the date it was sent and the final column to note if the card was received. With the “Christmas Card List” template, you can record all the people you want. Do not worry about the order. The template with a push of a button will alphabetize the names for you.

Depending on your printer capabilities, you can change the font, the point size and even the color.
