Organizing Holiday Decorations
Last year I took the time to label and organize my Christmas decorations. Now that it is that time of year again, I find that I really appreciate knowing exactly where to find everything.

Here are a few things you can do to help make your Christmas decorating a breeze:


  • Label each container with the holiday and a brief description of what is stored inside. (ex . Christmas Stockings, Tree Skirt) 
  • At the end of the season, store your decorations so that you can easily access the decorations you put up first. This saves you from having to dig through mountains of containers to find your outside lights or tree ornaments. 
  • Label the contents of every box when you put your decorations away this year (unless the box has a picture of the item that should be stored in it) and make a habit of labeling the boxes of any new items as you acquire them. This makes putting decorations away at the end of the season a breeze. 
  • Label decorations that were gifts with the name of the person who gave it to you and the year you received it. It is fun to reminisce as you pull each item out! 
I always make sure to decorate in the same order every year so that I have a system. I personally like to start with the biggest (and most difficult) jobs first and work my way down to the smaller items. I begin with my outside lights and then put up my tree. That way I can enjoy putting the small touches on the rest of my house knowing that the big stuff is finished!
