Anyone else start to take down their Christmas decorations? Do you have a set Christmas Organization plan? It’s important to make sure you have items that will help keep you organized for storage, but also get you set for when you take them down next year.
Having a set plan when it comes to Christmas Organization is something we only started doing last year. We were sick and tired of taking the decorations down from our attic and seeing that nothing made any sense.
We had random decorations in one box. We had string lights all knotted together in another. We had wrapping paper and tissues paper and gift baggies thrown in just about every box. There were ornaments scattered in boxes. It was a mess and it was really overwhelming to go through (especially with 5 kids).
When we took all of our Christmas decorations down last year, we immediately went online and bought Christmas organization systems that we knew would help us out. We didn’t want to go through another year of craziness as we opened and took down decorations.
There are so many different Christmas organization items out there that are great to use. You really need to stop and think about what you have and what you need.
Most people have:
- Lighting for the tree
- Christmas wrapping
- Regular holiday decor
With 5 kids and being married now for (almost) 20 years, as you can imagine – we’ve accumulated a ton of Christmas and holiday decor throughout the years. We’ve actually had to go through items throughout the years and donate because we had so much.
It’s important to have the right tools and products to be able to properly organize your Christmas decorations. I’m going to share with you (5) products that are super helpful to get you going on your Christmas organization path. You will be SO HAPPY you did this next year when you’re unpacking. (I promise!)
