Did you survive Christmas? I don't know about you, but Santa is quite exhausted here at The Everyday Home. It looks like his sled exploded in the Family Room.
Usually, I leave all my decorations up until January 6th, Old Christmas. But, this year - I am antsy to get my house back to normal and start on some DIY projects. I will leave the tree up until Jan 6th.
So how do you store your decorations?
Actually, they are not quite as bad as the above pic depicts. Last year, we wrapped each strand of lights around a solo cup, with the end poked thru the bottom of the cup. That worked wonderful. We also use solo cups to store our ornaments, like this....
My goal this year is to really organize the decor, unlike past years when I had to go right back to work the day after Christmas.
I even found these great printables on Pinterest that will allow you to inventory and track where particular items are stored.
I have sent The Hubbs out to The Home Depot to get some more plastic bins. I know in a few days they will be picked over.
I have concluded that my Christmas decorations reproduce like rabbits. Each year, I need at least 2-3 more bins.
How about you? Do you have any ingenuous ideas for storing decorations you would like to share with me?
For now though, I think another nap is in order.
