It’s that time of year, again, when you’ll be putting Santa and all his reindeer back in your holiday storage. It’s also the perfect time of year to tidy up your old holiday decorations.

Ways to Tidy Up Your Holiday Decorations

Know What to Get Rid Of

Tossing Christmas and holiday decorations can make you feel a little Grinch-like. But it’s actually a great opportunity to go down memory lane and organize your things. Tidying up your decorations will even make decorating next year manageable and less overwhelming. But how do you know what to get rid of? Well, a good rule of thumb is to get rid of anything you haven’t used in a year or two. You should also look to get rid of decorations that have layers of dust on them. Many of your decorations can likely be donated, so don’t be afraid to start a collection.

Look Carefully

As you go through your things, you might realize you have duplicates of some decorations. Or you’ll even discover you have broken ornaments and lights. In that case, then it’s time to purge these items. You should also get rid of any wrapping paper or tissue paper that’s ripped or you didn’t use recently. You can also ditch those old greeting cards you never used.

Sort By Holiday

If you’re a family with mixed traditions, then you need to start organizing decorations by holiday. If you’ve been known to just shove things into a tote, then you’re not doing yourself any favors. Instead, sort things by holiday and label your totes or boxes. You can even try to color coordinate the totes so they match the holiday you’re family is celebrating. This will make it easier for you to drag out decorations the next year.
