Christmas Cleanup Tips for the Not Naturally Organized

  1. Take pictures. You can use them as a reference for when you’re decorating the house next year.
  2. Separate the non-breakables. When you are storing your ornaments, keep your non-breakables together. This saves time and space because these do not need to be wrapped and placed in divided boxes.
  3. Break it down into categories. Fill a box with only lights, or only books.
  4. Buy the right supplies. Be sure you have enough boxes, box dividers,
wrapping paper, etc.
  5. Make a note. Put notes in your boxes detailing what is in the box, if things
are broken, or if you need to buy more of something.
  6. Get help at the end. Once you are finished putting everything into boxes,
ask a friend or family member to help you move the boxes to storage.
