Get Your Home Ready for the Holidays: 28 Day Challenge – Day 22
Day 22: Set up a holiday card mini zone
How did you do with yesterday's paper clutter challenge? I hope it went well and that it provided you and your home with a bit of relief.
Today's challenge is also about paper, but this time, we'll be setting up some simple systems to head-off paper clutter from holiday cards. For today's challenge you have a choice, you can either set up a spot to corral incoming holiday cards, or you can set up a card sending mini zone. (Or if you're feeling really motivated, you can do both.)
For incoming cards, designate one spot for your cards. You could use a basket or a pretty wooden box. If you like keeping your cards on display, consider hanging a pretty ribbon on the wall and attaching cards with clothes pins. I like to display my cards with magnets on an old jelly cabinet door that I use as a magnet board. It adds a festive touch to my office.
If you're planning to send cards this year, you could use today's challenge to set up a card sending mini zone to simplify the process. To do this, simply corral together all the things you use to send out your cards such as address labels, addresses, pens, stamps, and, of course, your cards and envelopes. Put these items into a portable container like a metal bucket or a wicker basket. This little project will help keep your home organized by corralling all your supplies together. Plus, it will make it simple to work on getting your cards done in small bits of time.
Okay...so you all have gone really quiet on me the last few days. Are you busy getting your home ready? How are things going? I'd love to hear from you (hint, hint.) :)
