How to Declutter After the Holidays

This is a sponsored post written by me in collaboration with HomeRight. All opinions are mine alone. This post contains affiliate links for your convenience

A new year is time for a new beginning and getting organized after the craziness of the holidays. In between shopping, hosting parties, attending parties, and wrapping gifts, not to mention the chaos of Christmas Day, there is little time to clean. I like to take advantage of a little bit of down time after the holidays to declutter, clean, and get organized.

HomeRight even has a handy storage bag to store all the Steam Machine attachments in and it hangs neatly over a closet door! It features mesh pockets in multiple sizes to hold the various sizes of attachments and accessories. It also has two Velcro straps for rolling it up, grommet holes and dual loops at the top for hanging. Even if you do not have a Steam Machine, this pocket organizer can be used to hold a variety of tools and cleaning supplies!

Store Holiday Pillows and Throws


Canvas totes are perfect for storing these plush items to keep them clean and safe until next year. This one has a zipper lid that helps keep out dust and debris. It stacks neatly on the other boxes of Christmas decor in our closet.

Store Gift Wrap, Bags, Boxes and Bows


Now that the holidays are over, what are you going to do with all the leftover wrapping paper, bows, gift bags, and boxes? A few years ago, I bought a tall tupperware style tote that is made for holding wrapping paper. I am able to put the rolls of paper and bag of bows and tags in the tall container and then I organized the gift bags, tissue paper, and clothing boxes in a large rectangular tote. These two containers easily stack on top of one another and are stored away in our basement closet until next year!
