Clear Out The Clutter, Bring On The Holidays!
The happiest time of the year is here and everyone is counting down the days to decorate for the holidays. Who doesn’t love adding a little cheer with a decorated tree, Christmas lights and a little mistletoe? However, before you start setting everything up, clear the unused stuff out. Now is the perfect time!
Take a look around your house and clear the clutter that has been lingering. Start with your coffee table and get rid of old magazines and newspapers. Clear bathroom and kitchen counters by keeping out only what you use on a daily basis. For example, if you don’t drink coffee every day, then create a space in a cupboard or pantry and reclaim space on your counter.
Go through all the closets and remove items from the floor. Take a look at old jackets you haven’t worn in awhile, games your kids have ignored for years, and consider donating them. Your trash just may be someone else’s treasure...especially this time of year!
Once you’ve done this quick clean up of clutter throughout your house, you’ll have more room to show off your Christmas Village or those cute, handmade holiday decorations your kids so lovingly made. Less clutter in your life creates less clutter in your mind allowing you to enjoy the happiest time of the year all the more!
