Today I'm talking more about organizing and house stuff. Go ahead, roll your eyes. Get it over with. It's OK. It won't offend me.
I just can't help it and it gets me motivated to actually do my organizing and household duties the right way and that's why I blog about it. You never know, it might even motivate you! Is it your New Years resolution to be more organized? See? I'm just helping a friend out.
I packed up Christmas last week (except for the snowmen...they get to hang around for at least one more week). I decided to organize my totes as neatly as I could, so that when I pull them out next year, I can ooh and aah over them.
Don't worry I won't bore you with the contents of every tote, but just imagine everything fitting so neatly inside, tissue paper included for all the fragile things.
For this project, I got out my handy label maker and went to town. I've had the totes labeled in the past, but this year I really got specific and they deserved the large size this time.
What's in your totes, you might ask? Christmas lights, Christmas gift wrap (see contents below), Christmas containers including basket fillers (see contents below), Christmas tree decor (see contents below), Christmas misc. decor (pretty much anything besides snowmen, which includes stockings, stocking holders, and my nativity), 2 totes of snowman decor (I know, I know, this might be a little much), and Christmas candles (which I have learned NOT to keep in the attic...I found melted candles one year...very tragic)
flattened gift boxes, squares of leftover wrapping paper, gift bags of all sizes, and tissue paper
Christmas containers tote includes...
cute tins, baskets, and misc. containers, including shredded basket fillers
(FYI: I can't explain why this picture is turned the wrong way)
Christmas tree decor includes...
boxes of ornaments for each of my children, a box for both mine and my husband's childhood ornaments, and a small organizer for our ornaments we have collected together since we've been married,
also included are bulbs and other misc. trimmings including our new "after-Christmas sale" star topper
I didn't get a chance to snap a picture of my 2 smaller (no, seriously) organizers of ribbons and bows and my wrapping paper collection (or should I say addiction?) before my husband put them in the attic. (I think he was tired of seeing this stuff laying around.)
If you'd like to see my Christmas decor before I put it way, check it out here.
That's what I tackled...what about you?
