Isn’t it amazing how Christmas decor can take over every nook and cranny of your home?

I tend to spread my Christmas cheer over multiple rooms. I have some towels and soaps in the bathrooms, some snowman/log cabin dishes in the dining room, some winter-themed goblets in the kitchen, and table runners in the living room. Every year, I get everything packed up and put away on the highest shelf of the garage, only to discover that one of the Wise Men made a run for it and has been hiding out behind a throw pillow on the couch.

So today, go through every room and gather your Christmas wares. Here are some places you may want to check:

  • The Living Room
  • Guest Bathroom
  • Kitchen (including cabinets)
  • Dining Room
  • Bedrooms (for any stealth wrapping that may have taken place,)
  • Laundry Room

And here is a list of things with a Christmas theme to be on the look out for:

  • Candles
  • Soaps
  • Tablecloths/table runners
  • Mugs
  • Dishes
  • Paper Products
  • Ornaments
  • Kitchen towels
  • Napkins
  • Christmas Cards
  • Wrapping Supplies
  • Stray decor

Get it all into one place – ours is hanging out on the kitchen table. Make some decisions about what stays, and what gets repurposed or recycled.
