This year as you start to put up the holiday decorations take the time to evaluate them. Some are tired and old. Some you just REALLY don’t like anymore. Some are broken, and you meant to fix them. Some you have kept out of guilt because someone gave them to you.
Broken throw out and the rest, pack up and donate. Donate before Christmas, an someone else can use something you longer want right away.
If you just do the outside and tree, and you like to have items throughout the home, consider packing up the stuff that is currently out. Give the Christmas decoations a full beautiful showing. I have a girlfriend who adores Christmas and this is what she does. Her home is not cluttered because everything else is in a box in the attic and will come back out after January 1st.
