Packing Away the Holidays

The holidays have come and gone and the New Year is here. It’s time to pack away all the decorations, all the wrapping paper and gift bags. Schedule time to do it either a little everyday or one day where you sweep through the whole house. Think about what your schedule will allow you to do. If you find that you have a lot of interruptions or get distracted easily, then break it up into 15 or 30 minutes everyday.
If you’re packing away ornaments then save the old, ripped tissue paper to wrap and protect them. And, if you’re storing everything in bins, label them and go into detail about what’s in the box. This way you won’t be digging through every box because six of them are labeled Christmas. You want to make it easy to find things in a year when you pull it all out again.
