The holidays are over and it’s time to pack-up your wreaths, stockings, and that beautiful Christmas tree – but where do you start? Post-Christmas clean-up can be as stressful as the holiday preparations itself. Here are some things you can follow to make it faster and easier.
- Pack-up the things you need – Post holiday clean-up is great opportunity to de-clutter your home with things you don’t need. Throw away the items you don’t need and store the ones that are still useful. It may be hard to part ways with your old tea set, but if the cups are filled with cracks, you have to let them go.
- Organize a yard sale – Once you’ve segregated the items, try organizing a post-holiday garage sale. As the saying goes, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
- Take and Give – If you’ve received plenty of similar gifts for Christmas, consider giving them to charity. This is a great way to reduce your clutter and help others at the same time.
Start the new year right by organizing your home. Try these recommendations for a less stressful clean-up!
