Happy New Year!!! Are you ready to get 2012 kicked off cleaned up and organized!? Well you are in luck because today begins our 14 Days to get Clean & get Organized Challenge! I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time and I can’t wait to see all your transformations throughout the next few weeks!
Christmas has come and gone. The presents have been unwrapped, the new year has come, and it’s time to take down all of the Christmas decorations! Well, that’s what we are going to do today for Day #1 of our 14 day challenge! A little christmas organization!
I’m always sad to see the twinkle lights and snowflakes get packed away but when I’m done it always feels good to have everything organized and put away for next Christmas.
- Start by packing large, box-ie items at the bottom of the bins. Think of it like a puzzle. Piece as many boxes, egg cartons, etc. as you can in the bottom of the bin and then continue to add layers.
- When you get to the top of the bin fill in all the extra spaces with garland, small artificial trees, etc. These items are easy to bend and wiggle into unused spaces.
- Put the lid on the bin and then make sure to mark the sides of the bin clearly with a label. This will make it easier to know exactly what’s in there when it comes to decorating for Christmas next year!
