Let's declutter and get our homes ready for the new year. If you want to feel more peaceful and you're ready to clear out the extra stuff, then this is your episode.
Firstly, please find someone to give your discards to. If you have old towels or blankets, check with your local humane society to see if they will take them. We try to give away the things that someone else might want, to minimize things going into a landfill.

It's time to take out the Christmas decor, or at least start thinking about taking it down. Some people are sad and feel their homes look bare now, while others love the clean slate, and the bare look of their homes. No matter which side of the fence you sit on, we're talking about things you can do to transition to a winter look. What should go and what should stay? That's what we're talking about today. Of course, greenery, and pine cones, all of the natural touches can stay. The red touches, Santas, bells, and ornaments probably need to find a place to be stored until next year. We're fine with leaving out the mercury glass candle sticks, the fairy lights, and the boxwood balls and wreaths.

Brown paper packages wrapped up with string. These are a few of my favorite things. We both agree simplier is better for wrapping gifts. We suggest using kraft paper or plain white wrapping paper with bakers twine or a simple ribbon bow. If you want more color, go with a simple two color paper, or go with tone on tone. Then match your ribbon to your wrapping paper color.
