Christmas comes and goes so quickly, and in a few weeks, after all the Christmas fun full of food, gifts, and family togetherness, we will all be thinking about storing what we got out for next year’s festivities.

The week after Christmas, I take the time to watch a marathon TV show while I organize all the Christmas stuff, taking it down and making it available for next year. I even print address labels and return labels for next year’s 2024 Christmas card list, so after Thanksgiving, it’s all ready for me to send after taking the family picture and ordering the cards.

I was excited when I was assigned to write this story about organizing and storing Christmas fun. I obsess about it, so deep diving into it is an absolute pleasure.

Many great Americans over the years have commented on the importance of organization. According to the Order Expert website, Benjamin Franklin once said, “For every minute spent in organizing, an hour is earned.” Eleanor Roosevelt famously said, “It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan.”

I found some new items I did not have this year and ordered many things off this list myself. I was pretty impressed with how you can keep everything in such good shape for next year making things so much easier as you go into the next holiday.

My husband and I are always at stores on December 26th to buy discounted decorations for next year. I always enjoy getting things out to decorate for Christmas and having forgotten about the fun things we bought that are still in a wrapper.

I update new ways to organize often, and I hope, like me, you will get some use out of these ten items I found to help us all stay organized, merry, and bright.

  • Greeting Card Storage & Organizer Box

    I am one of those people who save every Christmas card, and my mother was the same way. After she passed a few years ago, I found Christmas cards organized with the year and who gave them going back to the early 1960s. These are now family treasures for me and my family. I use this card organizer for all occasions, but I have a special one for Christmas cards with each year marked and divided. I use a second one for my family’s card each year. We send a photo of our kids every year, and it’s so fun to put them side by side and see how they have grown.
