As soon as Christmas dinner is over, several members of our family get together and do all the dishes.
One of the first things to do when clearing up that Christmas Clutter is to pick up all that discarded wrapping paper and ribbon and those used bows.
Make a pile of those gifts that you need to return or exchange along with the receipts so you can exchange the gift as soon as possible. Then take them back to the appropriate stores as soon as you are able.
As you prepare to take down all of those beautiful Christmas decorations and put them away for another year you should take the time to sort through them.
Once I have organized and put away the actual Christmas decorations, I then organize and store the unused and still good wrapping papers, ribbons and bows.
If you have kids then chances are that they will be getting some new toys for Christmas. Most kids already have a lot of toys, some of which they no longer play with or are broken and unusable.
If you are one of those people who tend to have more clothes than you will ever wear, then you still may need to declutter to make room for those new clothing items.
