Quick Tip: Decluttering Christmas

The title of this post might be a little grandiose, but if you haven't packed away the holiday decorations yet, take a few moments to go through your decorations and see if there are any you no longer love.

I used to feel like I should hold on to all of the decorations I had in case I ever wanted to use them again, since I had the storage space. But now my thinking has changed. Unused, unloved decorations take up space, time and effort the same as any other clutter. Ask yourself when you last used the items you're storing but didn't put out this year. Has your color scheme or tastes changed? Are there items you no longer love? Isn't it time to let them go?


  1. Very good suggestion. Years, and years ago when my family and I moved to the UK for a year, I gave away all of my Christmas decorations as we didn't have room to carry it with us. I had tons of it! When we returned to the states I added back only a few decorations each year. I kept the number small and organized and it was so much nicer each year to decorate when I didn't have to sort through a huge amount.

  2. I still have tons of Christmas decorations to declutter, still been too busy to get to it yet! Ugh!!
