Refrigerator & pantry

Before you buy Christmas groceries, take some time to organize and clean your refrigerator and pantry!

It's better if you do this when your refrigerator is as empty as possible, such as the night before you go shopping at the grocery store.

After throwing away the excess, also clean each shelf.

Now is the time to put the condiments together and organize your shelves and drawers in the way that suits you best.

The same goes for your storeroom! Throw away the rice cakes and stale grains from when you were trying to eat “healthy”.

After that, take note of everything you will need to restock for the holidays!


Your wardrobe is one of the most important things to organize before Christmas! When you are looking for something to wear, there is nothing better than having an organized wardrobe.

My most important tip for decluttering the closet is to make sure you have time to donate the clothes you want to throw away right away. Don't take them around in your trunk for a few months or store them in another closet!

A good idea is to throw away things that have not been worn in a year. This is very useful before the holidays.

Important papers

Having a filing cabinet is very practical. It’s the perfect solution to organizing all those important documents.

The dividers allow you to organize everything by different categories.

It is helpful to organize this space before Christmas, especially before the New Year. Know that all your important documents are where you need them, and enter the new year with peace of mind.

In addition to this, you can also find old paperwork that you no longer need such as warranties, papers from old apartments, and other things that definitely need to go.


One of the things to think about for many families with children during the holidays is leaving room in the house for new gifts and toys.

Spend some time before Christmas tidying up your children’s toys so you can prepare for the new ones to come.

If you start having too many toys, they will quickly make your house feel chaotic.

Before Christmas, make sure to throw out all broken toys or toys with missing parts. You can also donate them, in the spirit of the holidays. Plus, everything will be organized and ready for the new toys to be put away nicely.

Holiday Décor

When you decorate for the holidays, it is a good idea to evaluate your holiday and Christmas decorations to see if there is anything you can give up.

Decorating doesn’t need to be complicated, sometimes a better approach is to simplify your holiday decorations.

Keep the things that you like and are special to you and give up the things you don't like. This way, you will have less to pack up and store after the season is over!
