Finally! Santas! Happy! Sort Of!

There are too many bins in our house...I used to love bins but now...hmmm...not so much love for my bins...I am forever unpacking them and packing them...they used to be sort of color coded...but any more I can open up a red and green bin and find much more than Christmas inside...sigh!

My goal for this coming year is to go through every bin...one or two or three a week...and cleanse our basement of bins! Plus...after crawling around the crawlspace yesterday...I am sick of the crawlspace!

I can't get the bins out of it on my own...it's too high and the dreaded bins are too heavy...so...with just a few bins out of the crawlspace I ended up going up and down the basement stairs with arm loads of Christmas...at least fifty times today!

Whew!

So...where does the happy come in! Now! There is a mantel filled with Santas and more to come! Lol!







This guy is my fave because it was my mom's! I see this Santa everywhere but I still love him best!



Still reading this...there is just way too much going on to read! Shopping, sending cards, watching it snow, tree trimming...oh my! This is the slowest I have read all year!

But it's really good...I loved the Fallen series which was also written by this author. In this one Eureka can't cry...ever...if she does? Her tears have the power to raise up the lost continent of Atlantis.




Off to unbin more Christmas!

Happy Decorating!

  1. I purged a few years ago. A great time to purge Christmas is right after Christmas when you are putting away for the year. Anything you did not put out - re-evaluate your need to keep it. Drag out all the stuff - even though it's terrible to do. It's hard to get rid of things when you're in the holiday spirit but AFTER the holiday it's much easier to part with things :) Then you can put away all the "keep" items in a neat and organized fashion.

  2. Wow, you do have a lot of bins...and I wouldn't like having to go into crawl spaces, either. Mine are in the garage, and my son set up nice shelves for them. However, if a heavy bin is on a top shelf...not good.

    Next spring, I'm going through the bins with paperwork...and taking them to a shredder.
