The following is a guest post with three simple tips for organizing holiday decor from regular contributor, Morgan from Morganize with Me.
Our weather has been a bit shall we say, unpredictable. Today it felt more like a summer day even though we’re halfway through October. And we also had a light snowfall only a week ago. This sporadic Colorado weather keeps me on my toes!
To welcome fall, I recently hung our fall wreath (pictured below) on our front door and placed our fall decorations around the house. I used to keep all of our seasonal decorations in different color coded bins but because our kitchen in our new home has so much extra storage I was able to move everything (minus our Christmas stuff) to a cupboard in the kitchen. This system works great for storing all things holiday.
I’ve learned over the years, especially from our multiple moves, that less is more when it comes to your holiday decor. Here are three simple tips you can easily implement when it comes to organizing your holiday decorations.
Organizing Holiday Decor: Three Simple Tips
Set a maximum number of holiday decorations that you will purchase and use for decoration. This can be a challenge because most retail stores discount their seasonal decor at the end of each season making it tempting to buy more. Use discernment and make a plan!
Intentionally choose to invest in decorations that will work for multiple holidays. For example, I created this patriotic wreath and I was able to use it from Memorial Day through Labor Day. A perfect solution that makes one less thing that I have to think about for almost four months! I also lean towards having mostly fall decor rather than Halloween and Thanksgiving. Combine where it naturally works for you.
Focus on creating lasting memories with simple traditions rather than with more stuff! One of the best parts of the holidays, is the traditions. Memory making requires time, so make sure to allow time to cultivate the traditions in your home that matter the most!
Remember everything you purchase must be maintained, organized, and stored. Using an intentional approach with your holiday decor will help you to be able to more fully experience the joy of the holidays!
