Time to pack away all the Christmas stuff... here are some things I've learned




It's that time of year, where it's time to put away all the wonderful Christmas stuff.
I am always excited to put it away and do a little spring cleaning at the same time.
On the other hand it is a little sad.  Christmas is such a magical time and it comes and goes so fast.

I learned a couple of years ago that if I store my Holiday stuff in 
clear totes it makes things a lot easier.
The clear totes help me to see the items, that way I don't have to get 
all the totes down.  That's a bonus. 
                                                                               







I can reuse tissue paper as packing for fragile items.
In the picture above I used a boot box to store these glass bowl fillers.
Next year I can open the box with all the filler and fill up the glass bowls with ease.
because it was all in one place.


I've learned that I can use soft things to help with cushioning the other items.





I feel in love with this little Santa Secrets box when I was visiting 
my mom in Indiana.  I used it to hold some of my favorite 
antique ornaments.
Putting things together like this can help to simplify
the packing.



I keep all of the nutcrackers in one tote I wrap each one in bubble wrap.
The bubble wrap was re used from the gifts.
