Taking down the decorations

When it's time to take down the Christmas decorations, sort through and declutter. Get rid of anything in your Christmas boxes that you haven't used for the last couple of years and that you don't love.

As you are replacing your Christmas decorations with the regular ones, do the same thing. Get rid of anything that you don't love or is extraneous. Take the moment to look at your decor with a fresh eye - is it too much? is there something you need to make it complete? is anything faded or worn? is there something in another part of the house that would brighten up your look?

While you're at it, get rid of old magazines and other clutter. A nice time to rethink things!!
