Declutter for Christmas

December 5, 2016 |

Do you feel overwhelmed at Christmas with all the extra “stuff” in your home?

One of the best ways to simplify Christmas is to declutter in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

You probably have some things you will never use for one reason or another.  Rather than storing them for another year, consider purging them.

If money is tight this Christmas and you would still like to donate pass unwanted items to charieties who can make money selling them on to new homes.

Here are some suggestions of decorations you can purge

  • Items that are broken, something that you’ve been “meaning to repair” but never actually get to it,  just do yourself a favour and throw it out!
  • Decorations that are worn, faded, or discoloured
  • Things you are tired of or no longer enjoy, pass them on
  • Anything else that you don’t use or plan to use this year no longer your favourite colour or theme.

Christmas Lights are probably one of the most frustrating things to store!  Not fan where the whole set doesn’t work when one light is burnt out or loose.  It takes so long to find the one that needs replacing.  LED strands like these still work when one light doesn’t.  Much better 🙂

Enjoy have fun, allocate an hour here or there to tackle one area or room at a time it’s amazing how much freer you feel with less around and also helping raise money for charity.  Someone trash is another’s treasure!
