I finally found the strength to put away the Christmas tree and such. It was my first Christmas in this house and so it was super hard to get rid of everything! The tree made the house look so cozy, but alas, it was time. I had bought these green bins at Target a few weeks back and I used the under-the-bed size to pack away most of the Christmas decor.
I just took the ornaments off, removed their hooks and then placed them into the bin.
Then I took off the lights and wrapped them up then they went in as well. I separated some of the ornaments into plastic bags since I used them for other decor in the house.
I also have a bag for extra lights and a bag for ornament hooks.
So there it is all packed up. Sad to see it go, but glad it's all packed away so nicely.
