Below is a list of holiday and Christmas clutter items to consider getting rid of. In addition, there's a hall of fame where you can share your own success or get inspired by what others have accomplished.
Holiday decorations are the quintessential type of item that you should keep in storage in your home for most of the year, and then you bring them out faithfully during their appointed season.
What ends up happening though is that we forget about some decorations and other festive items because we have no idea where we put them, or they're not something we actually like anymore and don't want to put up.
That's how we end up with holiday clutter.
There are several challenges within the 52 Week Organized Home Challenge that deal with the holidays in our homes that I encourage you to read:
I've also created quite a few decluttering missions that accompany these challenges, to help you get this area of your home more manageable.
Whether you've done these missions when I've scheduled them during the year, or any other time doesn't really matter to me. I just want to celebrate your success, so here's your chance to show off some before and after pictures when you've done one of the missions. If you're ready to share now click here to begin!
Items you may want to declutter include the following:

Clutter rarely just accumulates in one area of your home, but instead with time can overfill your entire home.
Follow the Declutter 365 plan to get your whole house decluttered, one small step at a time, over the course of the year, and see fantastic results that you can maintain year after year!
Start with my free gift to you, a 12 month declutter calendar which lists 365 different decluttering missions that will transform your whole house.
The step by step plan laid out in the calendar will guide you through the process of removing physical clutter, digital clutter and even set up foundational routines and habits for your home, to make it clutter free and organized from now on.
You can also get additional services to help you succeed with the Declutter 365 plan, including receiving daily text messages about each day's mission, as well as joining a private and exclusive Facebook group devoted to helping encourage and motivate you as you work through the daily and weekly tasks.
Have you participated in one of the Declutter Your Home In 15 Minutes A Day Missions, either while it was running for the day or when it was convenient for you?
Are you proud of your accomplishments and want to show the world what you decluttered today, and are getting out of your home?
Here's your chance to tell me about it. Pictures are highly encouraged, but you can also just write a description of what you decluttered too (note you've got to at least explain what we're seeing in the picture you upload).
You can send up to four pictures in each submission.
Here are the Hall of Fame submissions that have already been submitted.
Check these out to get inspired about what others have accomplished with the power of 15 minutes a day.
