WFMW: Storing decor to make room for Christmas

When you get your Christmas decorations out of their boxes, use those boxes to store your everyday decor to make room for Christmas items.

To make room for my Christmas decorations, I used to stuff my framed pictures and figurines (and believe me, that term is used loosely) into nooks and crannies in my kitchen cabinets. This year, I used my Christmas storage boxes to store these items in my garage until after the holidays. They won't be damaged by heat and it's not that long to have my precious boys' pictures put away...I think.

Great tip! I started doing the same last year. I also keep a special binder with holiday photos and just put the holiday pics in front of my usual pics--same frames so nothing to move/store.

I started doing the same thing a couple of years ago - it just makes so much sense and helps keep things from looking cluttered!
