Christmas Hint #29 -- Putting It All Away

It’s good to have a plan when putting away the decorations. If you’re pretty sure you’ll be in the same house next year, and you went to a lot of trouble decorating each room, instead of putting things away by categories, like all the ornaments together, all the lights together, etc., why not put them away by room? Printer paper boxes and Avon boxes are perfect for organizing and storing Christmas decorations.

Since this project is usually a drudge, why not turn it into a party? What better excuse for an extra large pizza than as a reward for getting friends and family to help put away the Christmas decorations.

Here are some great Christmas decorations to put away from OLA.

That sounds like a great plan. Where do you get all those great ideas you are sharing with us.

I think almost all of our holiday decorations are stored in Avon boxes!

But hmmm... no one ever seems to be available when I am putting them away! >:(
