Raise your hand if you need the easiest tips for holiday organization.
Good, me too! Today I am going to share my five must haves.
There have been many items over the past few years that I realize I need after Christmas.
Things to make my life more organized. So last Christmas, I made a list…checked it twice, and vowed to be proactive and purchase those items before this Christmas season was upon me. So I did!
Proactive! Remember that word.
Also, If you want to see all my holiday goodies, that I need to store, you can see my holiday home tour here.

One – Wrapping Paper
How many of you have leftover wrapping paper, or paper you bought on clearance after Christmas last year, or the year before that?
I know you can’t see me but I am definitely raising my hand!
Why do I always have so much paper? I have “stored” all that paper in the corner of my Christmas closet and not in an organized fashion, I may add. Finally, I purchased some perfect wrapping paper holders.
Two – Wreath & Tree Storage
Where do you put your wreaths when the holiday is over? I used to shove mine in a black garbage bag and hang them in the storage closet. My method didn’t help to keep their shape, that’s for sure! I have wanted a wreath holder, for every season, and now I have some. I recently bought three wreath storage containers and let me tell you, they work great.
Goodbye black garbage bags!
If you have an artificial tree and don’t have the original box for storage, I’ve got the solution for you!
Check out these amazing rolling duffle bags for your tree.
Three – Clear Storage Containers
Speaking of garbage bags, I never have enough containers for my Christmas pillows and throws. It seems that some of those beautiful pillows and throws ended up in a black garbage bags too, just like my wreaths. Every year, I say I will buy more and when the season is over, I haven’t purchased ANY! Please, tell me I am not alone.
I am happy to say that the purchase has been made and the clear storage containers are also checked off my list!
This year, all the pretty holiday blankets and pillows will be safe in their new home!
Four – Christmas Lights
How about those Christmas lights?
If you have a pre-lit tree, no worries. However, if you are like me and ADD more lights, then you need this next tip!
How many of you just take them off the tree and throw them in a container? I try to take them off nicely, wind them neatly, putting them in a container for next year. I have always wanted those cord wind up helpers. I finally found some and placed my order.
Lights organized – check!
Five – All Those Ornaments
Up until the last few years, I had always had two 10 ft. trees. Needless to say, I have acquired so many ornaments over the years. I am methodical when it comes to putting them away. Many of my ornaments have their own boxes but many I have do not. Ordering ornament containers was a priority on my list.
I am happy to say all my items have been ordered and my list is complete!
With all my new purchases, I am happy to say that I WILL be organized this year!
