Packing up Christmas. . . .



I am never as organized in real life as I am in my head......

While in theory, I am organized....in practice it doesn't always work that way....



So imagine my surprise when I opened my Christmas bins and found this....



Last year, as I took my decorations down, I packed them into bags based upon 
their area of the house...I have NO recollection of doing this!



The mantle and all of its lights and accessories were put into a bag and so 
were my hallway decor and greens around the stairs......



Sometimes I surprise even myself!! 

This year I may even try labeling the bags.....we'll see if it actually happens!!


How long do you keep your decorations up?

Oh, I love surprises like that!:) I do so love Christmas decorations, but once Christmas is over, I take them down quite quickly. The real greenery is breaking and flaking all over the place!...I think I may tackle the "take down" tomorrow.

I found a few forgotten items this year too.
I keep our decorations up till New Years Day.
I hope you and your family have a blessed New Year!

LOL! I loathe taking down Christmas decorations, but some years I am surprised at how much care I took to put them away. If they would all come out looking wonderful, I would just gather them in a giant pile and toss them into the storage bins. I don't think I am quite at labeling yet....
