It’s quite possible your home’s organization has suffered the consequences of the holiday season. Thankfully, getting your home back in pre-holiday order is the perfect opportunity to get the rest of your home organized!
We’ve put together some tips for getting your home back to normal (and make it look even better) after the holidays:
Tackle the clutter and holiday decorations room by room. Trying to clean the house all at once can be overwhelming, especially if you really embraced the holiday spirit this year. So, concentrate on one room at a time, or split the rooms with a family member!
A ClosetMaid SuiteSymphony storage system in your living room is a beautiful way to store special seasonal dishes and cutlery.
Store holiday gift wrap and ribbons in Fabric Drawers and a ShelfTrack system. Don’t forget to check out our special Wire Kit sale to find the perfect wire shelving for your home at a fraction of the original price!
Clean out the food in your fridge. With the holidays drawing to a close, take inventory of those leftovers in your refrigerator to assess what you can keep for a few more days and what has overstayed its welcome.
Store your extra linens up and out of the way. If your house was your extended family’s vacation destination this year, store all those extra sheets, pillows and blankets overhead in your linen closet to make more room for your everyday items.
Make sure to pack away fragile items carefully. Since many holiday items tend to be extremely delicate, store them with care so you can use them again next year.
