Have a Holly, Junk-Free Christmas

There’s a chill in the air, a spring in our steps, and plenty of gift boxes cluttering up our closet space. The holidays tend to highlight the areas in our lives that are overstuffed. So what better time to sort through old junk?

3 Christmas Decluttering Tips

  1. Ornament organization. Most Americans have boxes upon boxes of holiday decor in the attic, shoved under beds, and spilling out of closets. You may not even know how much you have! This year, pay attention. If your whole house twinkles with Christmas lights and holiday baubles, but your attic is still filled with boxes of holiday decor, it’s time to downsize. Sort through holiday decorations while they attic is emptier than usual. When it’s time to put everything away again, do your future self a favor and keep holiday decorations organized.
  2. woman with pile of christmas presentsMake way for Christmas. Everyone has to rearrange to fit the Christmas tree in the living room. But if you find yourself moving mantle decor, table centerpieces, and end tables out of the way for holiday decorations, it’s time to get rid of the junk. Think twice about everything you move to make way for Santa. Does it need to be there at all?
  3. Out with the old, in with the new. Once you cross off your holiday shopping list, it’s time to receive. For every present you open, try to find something comparable in your home to get rid of. New movie? Get rid of one you haven’t seen in 5 years. New blender? There’s no point in hanging onto the old one.
