Decluttering Before the Holiday Chaos

Ahh, the sweet smell of November. Can you hear those sleigh bells ringing? Or smell that pumpkin spice scent? We sure can. Now that we are that much closer to the two major holidays of the year, we are (inevitably) that much closer to having to make sure our homes are as clean and tidily kept as possible for all those guests and parties. It can seem like a daunting task, so we wanted to let you in on two tips to get you started in decluttering your stuff while still making sure your home is nicely decorated and presentable.

Categorizing

Categorizing your items into seasonal uses is one of the first things you could do in order to minimize which items you still want to leave out on display. Take down any summer-esque decorations, random knick-knacks, or anything that doesn’t fit your fall theme. Thinking about it in terms of what fits the season will make it a bit easier to determine what you should stay and what should get put away (for now).

Storing

Once you’ve determined what is staying for the fall and winter seasons, it’s time to put them away. How, you might ask? There are many options you can take when it comes to how you organize things that are not currently in use – you can throw them under the bed, pile them up in the garage, or in the corners of your house and hope that no one asks about it. But is that most effective? Certainly not.

Instead, we suggest investing in a few boxes (very cost effective) that double as decor. You can find these at Target, Walmart, or IKEA to name a few places. Most of the time, you can buy a small shelf to store them in – feel free to mix and match patterns, colors, etc., to also spruce up your space at the same time. We have also included a few of our favorite picks for shelves (on sale)!

If you are wanting a more durable, stylish option, investing in a chest or storage ottoman might be one of the best decisions for you. Easily a statement piece, they can really liven up the appearance of your living room or bedroom, and often times double as a small table/space to place more decor on top. Be sure to check out a few of our picks (that are also on SALE)!
