Cleaning up after the holidays can definitely seem like a drag; from taking down decorations to making room for new gifts and toys, cleaning up after the holidays is no easy feat. Give your home a fresh start just in time for the New Year by following these easy cleaning and organizing tips:
Say goodbye to those excess presents: although the thought does count, you do not need to allow these unwanted gifts to clutter your home. Return or donate the gifts that didn’t work out.
Collect and organize your holiday cards: Use the cards you received in the mail as a start to your holiday card list for next year! Don’t hold on to the cards after the holiday they will only create clutter.
Take down holiday décor: if you have holiday lights up follow this simple trick: wrap strings of lights around a piece of cardboard or a paper towel tube to keep them organized and easy to unravel next season.
