March 19, 2010, Newsletter Issue #146: Organizing Your Christmas Decorations

Tip of the Week

Admit it, you love to walk up and down the aisles looking at all of the Christmas tree displays. Maybe you stopped in to purchase a Christmas wreath and wound up buying half of the store. With so many beautiful and affordable Christmas tree decorations on the market, itís hard to resist the temptation. Before you know it, youíve got more decorations than house. Itís great to have variety and the option of changing your holiday dťcor year to year! Last year, you were into burgundy bows and white Christmas lights, and the year before it was navy blue Christmas bulbs with silver garland. As you build your collection of Christmas decorations, take care to organize them in a way that makes it easy to find when the next holiday season rolls around.

Practically all large department and/or home hardware stores sell a multitude of storage options. Look for durable and heavy plastic containers that have different compartments or at least enough room to store your Christmas tree decorations without squishing them.

Organize each box using all of the decorations you would use for that particular theme and make sure to write in permanent marker (on the side of the box where itís clearly visible) exactly what is in the container, including the colors and objects (i.e. a wreath, beaded garland, tinsel, etc.).

Next year, instead of having to sift through a pile of mismatched Christmas decorations, youíll only have to pull your desired theme off the shelf.
