Christmas Pack-Up Made Easy

HINT: sing to the tune of Jingle Bells!

The tree is looking limp
The festivities are long past
So let’s pack it all away
But with systems that will last

With new procedures for next year
Your work will be a whole lot less
And the time that you spend now
Forever you will bless!

Oh Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells
……….

Let’s tackle the Christmas Pack Up one area at a time:

          • Take a photo of tree so you can remember how it looked this year
          • Strip the tree of all its decorations and lights
          • Pack tree back into its box if you have an artificial tree
          • Discard real tree according to your local area’s disposal regulations

Christmas Decoration Chest

              • Empty out your storage place, I use a chest which doubles as a coffee table (with a glass top added)
              • Clean out completely
              • Pack items into container, cupboard, drawers, boxes or whatever you are using
              • Label as necessary
