If you are on a mission to declutter and get organised than this time of year can be daunting. Dealing with all the extra stuff entering your home will need to be dealt with soon enough. But what about preparing your home to be more festive, and making room for Christmas decorations…
Who wants to spend more time cleaning!
My solution is simple, as you put your festive decorations out use the same boxes and containers to store away any excess ornaments.
That way at the end of the season you can simply reverse the process.
As always I’m also going to suggest that this is a great time to declutter. You may groan at the idea but really it’s simple triggers like this that have helped me stay organised.
In my last blog, I spoke about deluttering your Christmas decorations, and as you move (or pack if you are following my suggestion) ornaments it’s a great time to declutter these too.
You may even find that although some ornaments have been displayed for years you have forgotten they were there.
I decided years ago that I would only put out a few Christmas decorations realising that I stopped enjoying them when they took ages to clean and put up/take down.
Other than a couple of other pieces the picture on this blog is the extent of my Christmas decorations. I usually have a family photo album and a Swedish snowball candle holder on display, both easy to store away for the duration.
I store my Christmas decorations in an old suitcase from my grandparents. It’s a piece of memorabilia in itself and works perfectly to store my decorations.
Do you have any suggestions to add?
