With Christmas past and the holiday season coming to a close, now is the time to cash in on all the fantastic post-holiday deals. Holiday organization on a budget is always something I try to achieve. I wait before I add anything new to my holiday decor until after the season has passed. Wrapping paper, for example, can be very expensive, but if you hold out long enough and are not too picky with what is left, you can get huge rolls of paper for under a couple of dollars. You can stock up on LED lights, table decor, ornaments, and sometimes you can even snatch a great deal on those huge blow up Christmas yard decorations and fake Christmas trees.
Another reason to wait until after the season is you can get holiday containers much cheaper than usual for holding ornaments, wreaths, or even large storage containers for your fake Christmas tree. One of the best deals that is easy on your budget after most holidays is the colored storage bins and containers for better organization. A few years ago, I waited until most of the bins were around 90% off and bought about 10 red and green medium-sized storage bins. I was tired of not locating all my decorations lying within obscurely marked boxes at the beginning of each holiday season. I wanted a no fail way to store my holiday decor and also be able to find it easily each year. In our storage room, you can now tell what storage bins are for what holiday. The red and green bins all contain anything to do with Christmas, with green bins for all my Fall decor and grey for the summer months. It makes finding stuff way easier and is also much more organized.
If you are a person who loves colorful matching holiday totes at a great bargain, then head out to the stores now to snatch those awesome deals. When the next holiday season rolls around you just have to tell your helper “Oh just grab the red colored totes.” It makes for a much happier holidays! ;)
Happy Holiday Organization on a Budget
