As the annual January organization frenzy begins around here, the Christmas decorations got put away. Well mostly. I ended up placing all my neutral glass balls in my big trencher bowl to keep them safe while wrapping all the colorful ones.
I thought it looked so pretty!
So is it weird of me to enjoy them just a few days more?
Honestly, I don't care!
They're staying just a little longer!
They look kinda wintery and snowy right?
How long do your decorations stay up?
I've had lots of conversations with customers at the shop about this very topic and the answers run the gamut. A couple people took them down on the 26th. A few said New Years was the day. And one person said that January 5 is her traditional day to take everything down.
I do not have a set time frame but I would say that generally speaking, mid January is when I usually start packing things up. As much as I love the Christmas tree and all the memories and stories in the ornaments, it felt so good to reclaim that space in my family room! Things were feeling a bit claustrophobic in there.
I've got some plans for organization over the next couple of months. I started Saturday by buying some 12x12 boxes at Hobby Lobby to corral all the yearly tax documentation. Not sure why, but I love organizing!
