Isn't undecorating the house and tree the most blechy thing? I'm not looking forward to it, but I really want my house back in order. Ick. Such a bother but it has to be done. Anyone have any secrets for making it less of a chore? I wish I could pay someone to do it.


  1. I think undecorating is just about the saddest thing ever. :( No more Christmas. :(

    We did this a couple of days ago and I made the entire family help me. Even the 2 yr old. It is kind of sad, like Amanda said but then again, I feel like the house is a big wide open space. :)

    Good luck undecorating!

  3. Leave it all up until next year?

    Or how about doing it in stages, so you have time to get used to the lack of pretty colors and lights? This is my method. It's not procrastination, oh's not. Nor is it a job half-done. Nope. It's intentional...

  4. I don't think I'm ready.
    I still have my little fiber optic tree out. I still plug it in at night.
    Please don't make me undecorate! Not yet.

  5. My husband actually pouted after New Years when everyone else on our street took their lights down and he had no excuses left to leave them up. He's fine with getting rid of all the inside stuff-but he just loves those Christmas lights :}
    So do I.

  6. Okay, maybe I'm weird, but I kinda like it. Laying all my little crystals whatsits back in their boxes and tucking them all up with sweet-smelling oils so the box smells right when I open it next year. Pulling out all the summer stuff and baring back to less clutter. If I lived closer and you didn't have cats, or better yet, I wasn't allergic to them, I'd pack away for ya, no worries.
    Oh, but I never get the kids to help. They HATE it, and often hide bits so they can keep them out. I think the only time I found it very hard was when my baby turned 5 and I knew this would be his last magical Christmas. That was hard to let go of.
