You’re not going to be surprised when I tell you that one of my favorite things about the Christmas season is the process of decorating our home each year.
I love going to my special portion of the garage, grabbing my green and red plastic containers full of decorations and taking them into the house to be unloaded in a specific way, in a specific order. It’s such a great way to benefit from being organized, don’t you think? I can rest assured that everything has been put away in an orderly manner the year before and is just waiting for me to unpack it again this year.
Yes, this is the time of year for Penelopes to shine.
Each year, to increase the jolt I get when I take out all my holiday things, I try to add one or two new organizing products to my arsenal. Here are a few of my very favorites:
I hate wrapping gifts, but using this plastic bin to organize my holiday wrapping supplies helps me over the hump.
I don’t keep all of my ornaments in special boxes, but the very most special ones go in a box like this one:
These are my true go-to tools for the keeping 99% of my decorations in each year. I have several and they keep everything clean and dry all year long in the garage. I realize I could have bought plain clear ones, but these Christmas colors just do my Penelope heart good.
This little goodie enables my lazy side. I can wrap it around our artificial tree and put it away without having to take the tree apart to put it back in its original box. That means next year, I just unwrap it and plug it in, perfection!
And, you knew I’d ask: what are your favorite organizational tools for any aspect of the holidays? What couldn’t you live without?
