If your seasonal celebrations could use a little more peace and joy, read on to see how you can tackle clutter, relieve stress, and enjoy your holiday a little bit more.
Some people are born with the knack to organize. The rest of us were not. If the thought of an organized office, pristine closets, and a pretty pantry do not motivate then how about the thought of having a merrier holiday season? Hiring a professional custom closet company in Doylestown can be the difference between an organized home and a stress-filled holiday.
Separate clothes by season if your closets and drawer space will allow. Sorting that way makes sense and such a system will simplify seasonal cleaning. Visibility is also important when organizing your closet. If you can’t see it then you don’t use it. Having an organized closet during holiday time makes it easier to see what’s in your closet and allows it to be easier when trying to decide what to wear to that annual holiday party.
Resist over accumulating on holiday décor and purge unused decorations. Before you decorate, give the house a good cleaning so that your house will be fresh and sparkly before the decorating even begins. If you like to set up your decorations the same way, don’t commit it to memory. Write down instructions, take photos, and store in a binder for easy access each year.
Take inventory before you shop. It’s tempting to pick up new tableware and decorations but know if you need it before buying anything new and set a budget. Make sure you create a space for wrapping all your gifts. Keep a holiday storage bin for gift wrapping supplies. It will keep everything in its place and you will know exactly where to go for these supplies when you need them. This creates less stress.
Take down decorations with ease by storing ornaments, wreaths, and lights in separate containers that are clearly marked. Make sure everything is labeled and that every decoration has a home that it can be safely stored and out of the way until it is needed next year.
These are a few ways to bring your life during the holidays into balance. Have a clear game plan for the New Year. If part of your storage problem is lack of organization consider hiring a professional custom closet company in Doylestown, like Closets for Less, to help you build cabinets, shelves, and drawers in your closets, pantries and garage spaces that will allow the clutter in your life to actually have a place. Having all your holiday decorations stored on shelving and out of the way will make preparation for next year a breeze.
