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.
