Christmas Pack-up

This time of year is always bitter-sweet for me. I love all of the Christmas decorations, but I'm also eager to have my house back to normal.

That said, I want to show you how I pack up my decorations. First I grab my empty bins from the garage and clean out any debris from them.
Next, I pack away my decorations in labeled ziploc bags. Sometimes I also use small gift boxes that will fit down into the bin. The bags and boxes keep things from shifting around in the bins as we haul them up onto the shelves in the garage.

Whenever possible, I keep the original boxes an item came in. Not only are they usually labeled with what the item is, they are a perfect fit for the item. I save all of the bubble wrap that came with the box too.


  1. That's what I've been doing today. I like the ziplock idea. I'm going to try that.

  2. I can see the label maker has been put to good use!


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
