The Holiday season is one of the best times of the year, but it can be a lot of work as well. Now that they're over, it's time to get everything put away, but that doesn't mean that you can't have fun while you do it. Our team at Steele Canvas has shared our top tips for cleaning up after the holidays. 

Set the Tone with Some Music

Going into any task with a positive attitude makes it feel much more achievable. Throw on your favorite playlist or find something new, but keep it upbeat so you'll feel inspired while you declutter. 

Snap Some Final Pictures of Your Decorated Home

You put a lot of work into making your home look fantastic for the season, so be sure to take some photos of the scenes. These can inspire you for next year and help make planning easier. 

Take Down Your Tree and Stockings (Carefully)

Many have family heirlooms and other delicate decorations, so while you might want to be done with it quickly, taking time and organizing your ornaments will make the next holiday season a breeze. Grab your storage baskets and get to work with large items first. 

Categorize Your Ornaments & Decor

Everyone has ornaments that are more fragile than others. Start with the least breakable and get them into containers; this will ensure you've got enough space for items that can break.  

Remember, once the holiday season rolls around next year, you'll be doing the bulk of the decorating. So find the tips out there that work best for you and run with them.  

Leave Yourself a Note

Knowing what's in a box or basket without having to dig through everything is a time and stress saver. Keep an inventory of your decorations, so you don't end up with duplicates or misplaced heirlooms. 

Remember, the sooner your home is decorated next year, the sooner you'll be enjoying it with friends and family!
