Putting away Christmas

Take a long look at what you are putting in those boxes. Can you edit your collections to what you really love, making room to appreciate¬†fewer and more¬†special things, even add a new item next season? I also create a diagram of where things work best in the room, what I group together etc. When next year’s decorating begins, it is much simpler to unpack and enjoy. If you have purchased cards or paper goods for next year, put them in a box labeled “Open me first” along with your holiday music and movies. It will save unnecessary purchases if you know where those consumable items are. Some people also keep a special book which has highlights of the season and those photo cards you hate to throw away.
