5 Easy Tips to Organize Your Home This Holiday Season

As the holidays draw close, it’s common for people to feel more stressed than usual. Preparing for large family get-togethers, last-minute Christmas shopping, and all the other “work” that goes into making the holiday cheery and bright is often more than any one person bargains for.

You can make your holidays less like work and way more fun by being organized. Below are five tips to organize your home this holiday season.

Follow one or two, or use them all to be better prepared for a fun and festive time with family and friends.

1. Have a Plan and Stick to It

Not having enough food to eat or seating for all your guests is a sure-fire way to ruin a holiday gathering.

If you’re the host, make it a point to find out how many guests are coming and plan accordingly. Rent seating, if necessary, and work out your menu in advance so you can make changes, if need be.

If you’ll be having the event catered, The Knot suggests letting the caterer know a final guest count a week prior to the party date.

In addition, allow yourself plenty of time before party day to clean your house properly.

2. Less is more when it comes to Decorating

Christmas decorations are lots of fun, and they help to put guests in the holiday spirit.

However, too many decorations can make your home feel cluttered. Only decorate the areas of your home that guests will be using, and keep it simple.

A lighted Christmas tree, some festive garland gracing the banister, and a beautiful centerpiece for the table are all good ideas. If you want to greet your guests with holiday cheer, decorate your front door.

3. View Your Home as a Guest

We get so comfortable in our own homes, we often miss things that others may perceive as clutter.

If you want your home to look and feel festive and inviting to your guests, go outside, come back in, and view your home through your guest’s eyes.

Look for things that clutter the main areas of your home and remove them until after the party.

4. Rent a Storage Unit

Everyone has things that create clutter in their homes. Maybe the clutter is sentimental, and maybe it’s useful.

Whatever the case, while you’re entertaining this holiday season, you might want to consider renting a storage unit for it until your celebration is over.

Storage units are an inexpensive solution for those things you can’t part with, but have little room for. They can be rented on a short-term or long-term basis to help you organize and free up the valuable space inside your home.

5. Put Things Away Properly

When it’s time to put your holiday decorations and party supplies away for the season, packing them properly enables you to find them easily the next time you want to use them.

Whether you store your things at home or in a storage unit, using plastic totes or large moving boxes protects your things while in storage and allows you to clearly label it all for easy searching.

If you’re hosting a holiday celebration this year, being organized ahead of time will save you a lot of hassle and stress. Use the tips above to help you get ready, or read our tips about decluttering your home and free up space.
