When Holidays Are Over, Organization Begins!

This is the most wonderful time of the year! Cooler weather, holiday decorations, family, food – we can’t say enough how much we truly love this season. However, it is also the time of year when things (decorations, wrapping paper, gift tags, etc…) get accumulated beyond belief. At Techline Furniture, Cabinetry, & Closets, we know that these things don’t have places in your non-holiday lives, but where do you put them when the season is over?

Techline has taken some tips from Better Homes and Gardens and has applied them to our holiday decorations. Now we share them with you!

  • Holiday Ornaments. Store similarly shaped ornaments, such as glittery orbs, in boxes with compartments. Wrap each ornament in tissue paper and fit it inside its own compartment; if an ornament is a lot smaller than the compartment, pad it with small pieces of bubble wrap so it won’t be jostled in storage. When you’re finished putting all the ornaments in their box, make a list on the outside of the box so you know what ornaments it holds for next year.
  • Holiday Wreaths. Wreaths made from faux fir or pine can easily be stored in hat boxes or hung up in the back of a closet. If you prefer to hang your holiday wreaths, attach each wreath to a wire hanger using florist‘s wire or twist ties, and cover the wreath and hanger in plastic to protect the wreath from dust. Hang in the back of a closet, the basement, or the attic, and simply unwrap the wreath next year to display.
  • Christmas Tree Lights. There are several handy ways to store Christmas tree lights so they remain untangled for the following year. When taking the lights down, be sure to wrap around your arm so they remain untangled, and store them in a plastic container, using clips or wire to hold a circular shape so the lights stay neat and organized for next year.
  • Mantel Displays. It’s important when storing decorations from a multiple-part display that you keep the parts together for easy reassembly next year. Wrap each component in bubble wrap or tissue paper and store neatly in a box. If you used fresh pine or fir sprigs for a mantel display, make a note of that on the box so you’ll be able to recreate the same display year after year.
  • Dining Table Set. Keep everything from your fine Christmas china to the napkins, centerpieces, and place cards all in one place. If you have a hutch to store special dishes in, stack them according to size. Fold cloth napkins and store in the same place, or keep packages of paper holiday napkins in a nearby drawer with the holiday place cards and silverware. If the Christmas table centerpieces are made from materials that can be used year after year, dismantle and keep in a separate box, making sure to label it and store in a place where you’ll easily find it next year.

Organization doesn’t have to be a stressful time for you! And if you find you’re running out of storage room, give Techline a call for help!

With the cleaning, cooking, entertaining…it can take a toll on you and your home. But it shouldn’t! If you keep your home organized, not only will it make things simpler when your guests arrive, but for YOUR well being!

Benefits of Organization:

  • More YOU time. This one’s simple. If you’re house is organized and uncluttered, you’ll spend less time cleaning, tidying and putting things back in their place. You’ll get to spend more time on the things you want to do.
  • More money. In an organized home, you won’t lose things. Those missing socks won’t need to be replaced. You’ll know exactly how much toilet paper is left, and when it’s time to buy some more. You’ll be able to see what your home has, what your home needs, and what needs replacing. You’ll be able to take an easy stock of your home, and plan your purchases accordingly.
  • Improved family relationships. All too often, clutter, misplaced items, and disorganization bring up quarrels between spouses, as well as parents and their children. Getting organized will eliminated this problem-causer.
  • Easy access. When your home is organized, everything will have a specific place. Each item will be easy to find, access and use quickly. It’s a time-saver!
  • Entertaining. If your home is disorganized and you’d like to throw a party, dinner or other get together, you’ll need days of notice, so you can spend hours and hours of cleaning, organizing and readying your house. Wouldn’t you like to be able to have friends over spur of the moment, with no planning ahead needed? Organization allows you this luxury. Your home is ready to be shown off!
  • Setting a great example for your children. Raising your children in an organized home will give them great skills to carry on through their lives. They’ll take the organizational examples you set and carry them on into their schoolwork, career and future families.
  • Better mental health. Simply put, you’ll be less stressed, and you’ll be happier. Without a messy home on the mind, you’re free to focus on the things that really matter!
