5 Post-Holiday Organizing Tips

by Maria Gracia | December 15, 2023 Join our newsletter to be notified when new content is added to our website. Organizing post-holiday sets the stage for a smoother and more enjoyable festive season the following year. Here are five practical tips to help you maintain order after the holidays: 1. Transition From Decorated to Undecorated Smoothly: Designate a specific date for undecorating, whether it's immediately after Christmas, on New Year's Day, or by January 6th. This ritual can serve as a refreshing start to the new year or a reflective moment. Ensure you plan something enjoyable afterward to bring peace and joy to the transition. 2. Strategic Storage Solutions: When dismantling the tree, avoid the hassle of untangling lights and dealing with a mess of ornaments next December. Wrap holiday lights around cardboard to prevent tangling, and store ornaments in an organized manner. Consider using an ornament container with divided sections or a large, sturdy plastic container, and don't forget to wrap fragile ornaments in bubble wrap. Label all holiday decoration containers clearly and store them in an easily accessible but out-of-the-way location. Allocate specific spaces for different holidays, such as a closet for non-Christmas decorations (Easter, Halloween, etc.) and another for Christmas trees and decor. Organize items in a way that prioritizes easy access to those needed first when the holiday season rolls around again. 3. Revise Your Holiday Card List: Take advantage of the end of the current holiday season to update your holiday card list for the next year. Add, modify, or remove names as necessary. If someone has moved during the year, update their address promptly. Consider sending New Year's cards to those you may have missed during the holiday rush. 4. Maintain a Holiday Journal: Start a holiday journal to document memorable moments, such as gifts given and received, favorite recipes, and special family meals. This journal serves as a delightful way to reminisce and plan for future celebrations. It can also help you track changes in traditions or preferences over the years. 5. Prepare a Post-Holiday Cleaning Routine: Develop a cleaning routine specifically tailored for the post-holiday period. Ensure that all decorations are safely packed away, and take the opportunity to deep clean areas that may have been overlooked during the festive rush. This sets the stage for a fresh start in the new year. By incorporating these additional tips, you'll not only maintain order but also enhance the joy and anticipation for the next holiday season.
