Before you box up those decorations... Get organized. First, take pictures of all your displays if you liked what you did this year so you know exactly where to put things next year. Next, box up decorations by room or even by pieces of furniture. All of my Christmas village pieces are boxed together including the cords, bulbs, and other necessities. Label each box and include a copy of the picture you took in the box for quick reference next year. Now there's no guessing what cord goes with what, how many strands of lights you need, or which hooks are needed for each and every look. (Sorry if this tip is too late to use this year. Bookmark it for next year and you'll be good to go.)
Happy New Year!
