How to: Organize your Home for the Holidays

As the end of 2020 and the holiday season slowly creeps up on us, maintaining an organized home is more important than ever. There are a few bad habits to leave in 2020 in order to organize and declutter your home. Keep on reading for tips to maintain organized living quarters as the holiday season approaches us!  



An easy habit to kick to stay organized for the holiday season is do not let cluttered letters and Christmas cards pile up. All too often we are obliged to throwing our mail into a large pile as we enter our home. Try placing a stylish wicker basket by your entry way or in the kitchen to keep this clutter minimal! Having a basket will act as a reminder to shuffle through the holiday cards and letters as they come pouring in.  



We are all guilty of piling as much as we can into a utility closet once we need to appear organized in a hurry. Limited guests may be invited into our homes this holiday season, but kicking this habit will help maintain an organized home for the new year. Set time aside before the holidays begin to organize utility closets with shelving, labels, totes, anything to declutter. That way as the holidays roll in you are prepared to store gifts while being able to access all your utility items.  



We all have that one chair or surface that collects our unworn or dirty clothing in the bedroom. Clothing can pile up quickly especially during the holidays when events (or zoom calls) will be at an all-time high! If the issue is dirty laundry, a hamper with a lid will aid in organizing and hiding dirty clothing. If clean unworn clothes are the ones to be left behind a simple tip would be to leave empty hangers nearby to entice you to put your clean laundry away.
