The holidays can be magical and stress free with some organizing. If you put in a little planning this year, you will reap the benefits for years to come. Here are my six tips for planning makes perfect!
Before your guests arrive, take a photo of your holiday table setting and save it to your computer in a folder called "Holidays". This way, you can delegate the job of setting the table to another family member easily on the day you entertain.
When you are packing up your holiday table decor, designate one basket to keep all reusable items in for next year. Even place-cards can be reused if you invite the same guests repeatedly.
Take a photo of your decorated mantel. Save it to your "Holidays" folder on your computer to jog your memory of what you liked for next year. Then, pack everything you loved using into one bin for organized storage.
Labeling holiday decor by area can be a holiday time saver. No more stress looking through miscellaneous decoration boxes, trying to locate what you want to use in a particular area of your home!
Create your own ribbon station with a Mug Tree (found in kitchen stores). You can also use a paper towel holder the same way. Doing this keeps your holiday ribbons accessible and tangle-free.
Make use of an old travel cosmetic case. The dividers are perfect for all of your holiday wrapping accessories!
