Pre Christmas Decluttering Tip

Its upon us once more…the climb up the ladder to the loft to get the Christmas Dec’s down.

In previous years I’ve been so annoyed with myself for not being more organised,  when finding brand new unopened packets of Christmas cards in amongst the Christmas dec’s especially when Id just bought new ones, or finding my lovely Father Christmas advent calendar the one I hang on the kitchen door each year and put chocolates in for the kids only for it to already be half way through the month..I never usually think about Christmas until after the 6th as its my daughters birthday but this year..due to having a whole year dedicated to decluttering and trying to get better organised, I will be scratting through my Christmas stuff this week to find that advent calendar so its ready on the 1st of December. (reminds me-I must make a note to actually buy the chocolates to go in it)

Something I did last year once the festivities were all over was go through every item I had that was Christmas related and before it was returned to the box, to go back upstairs I made a decision whether I really liked that particular thing and if it was a NO, then it went in the charity box.

So my advise to you this year..get up that loft a little earlier than you plan and go through your xmas stuff and if something is no longer putting a smile on your face.. then get rid…there are loads of school Christmas Fayres coming up, you could donate your unwanted Christmas tat, but lets hope you don’t win it back on the tombola.
