Whichever the case may be, think about the other 11 months of the year, when those decorations are not in use. Do they cause a storage problem? Are there some decorations you use less frequently or not at all, but hang on to anyway?
As you take out your decorations this year, make some decisions about each piece and whether it’s earning its place in your home.
You could even do away with storing Christmas decorations altogether and go for a combination of other options like …
- edible decorations
- items you have on hand, like cookie cutters or candles
- things you can repurpose after Christmas like fabric or ribbon
- consumables, like fake snow spray
or not 😉
