    Why You Should Downsize And Organize Before Christmas 

    Why You Should Downsize And Organize Before Christmas

    If you will be hosting Christmas this year then tidying up your home is certainly on your to-do list. While you’re at it take this opportunity to downsize and organize too. 

    Donate Kids Toys 

    If your kids will be getting lots of presents from Santa and family, make room for them now so that they don’t just get added to the clutter. Work with your kids to sort through their current toys, games, arts and crafts, and even clothing that no longer fits. Donate items to holiday charities or save in organized bins for your next garage sale. 

    Sort And Organize Holiday Items 

    As you pull out and put away your holiday essentials sort, organize, and get rid of the items you no longer use. While we only utilize these items once a year we often hang on to decorations and seasonal items we no longer like or have a use for. There is always a friend or loved one you who would appreciate what you no longer need, or your items can always be donated. 

    Practice One-In, One-Out For All New Gifts 

    As you put away your holiday gifts practice the one-in, one-out rule. While this doesn’t always have to be 100% you should always downsize as you add more items to your household. And, don’t be afraid to regift or one-out holiday gifts that are thoughtful but for whatever reason just aren’t you. 

    These tips will help to minimize clutter and stress year-round!
