Ok so, I think I am late. Most people cleaned up their Christmas decor and mess the first weekend in January. I am always still relishing in the holiday after New Year's Eve! Plus, this holiday, I went out almost every single night to either a Christmas Party or a dinner! By the time everything calmed down, I still had to go through my whole - 'aww Christmas is over' period and I finally got down to cleaning Sunday!
When I first looked at the mess, I immediately got overwhelmed. Of course I called my good friend Shanelle, the professional organizer and re-designer so she could say, 'I'll be over!' OMG, she didn't answer!!! So I was stuck with
The other issue I was having was the fact that I was going from Christmas cardboard boxes to proper Christmas bins and storage containers. The stuff that I didn't use this year was not organized, it was placed into whatever box it could fit into. So I had a complete organization situation in front of me at 8:00 p.m. on a Sunday night. Serious business....
At any rate, I DID IT!!! My organizational guru (Shanelle) had given me a Christmas bin for Christmas (yay!!) and I had purchased two of my own. So I sys-tem-ma-ti-cally (painful) placed balls with balls, ornaments with ornaments, put all the colored snowflakes in plastic baggies and all the wreaths in a wreath container!!!
I am soooo proud of myself. And I got it done in one night!!! Whoo hoo! Sadi. organized. 2013!! Let's go!!
