Blog: Busy Moms Can Be Organized Too

Some of you might still need to put away those holiday decorations. Your holidaydecorations can quickly overrun your household if there is no rhyme or reason to their organization. An easy and visual sorting system will allow you access to your holiday decorations quickly and easily. This system not only applies to Christmas, but also to Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Independence Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Chanukah, etc.

I suggest either using clear plastic bins or color- related bins, such as orange bins with black lids for Halloween or red bins with green lids for Christmas. There are also pastel colored bins for Easter. You will find these on sale during the particular season, so stock up then. The color coordinated bins are a quick visual reference.

No matter what type of bin you use, I suggest placing a large label on the side of the bin that will be facing front. Not only title the bin by holiday, but list the basic contents it contains. By storing your decorations properly with labels, you can organize all of your decorations for the various holidays year round. Items will easily fit back in the same containers again when you are finished with them, as well. Personally, my family has about 10 to 15 bins of Christmas decorations which we store in our loft, but each bin is clearly labeled so we know immediately what they contain.

When it comes to Christmas lights and garland, it can be a frustrating mess if they are not stored properly. To avoid this chaos, invest in storage bins that are specially designed for these decorations. There are fantastic bins with spools you can snap on the inside that will allow you to wind your tree lights and beaded garland around. They not only save you the frustration of uncoiling, but also prevent knots from forming which lengthens the life of your decorations.

Now a days, there are many types of containers you can purchase either in your local store or on line to store your holiday linens, fragile decorations, tree ornaments, wreaths, artificial tree, outside lighting, wrapping paper and ribbon. And don't forget the bubble wrap!

For more information and assistance on this topic or any organizing issue you might have, feel free to contact me. I will be more than happy to help you reach your goals for organization and make your place A Better Space.
