This Organized Life

Take a glimpse into my organized, but not-so-perfect world as a mom, author of the book HOT MESS: A Practical Guide to Getting Organized, and founder of Simply B Organized.... Show More

Hi Friends! Today I am joined by SBO Partner, Martha-Carol Stewart, founder of Chaos Organizing in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  You might remember Martha Carol from episode 91, where she talked all about Back to School Organizing Strategies (it’s a great episode if you want to go back and check it out!)

Today we are talking about holiday decorating and storage ideas. Martha shares her simple strategies of what she calls “ZONE DECORATING,” and answers questions like:

When do you recommend people start decorating?

How long do you keep decorations up?

What is your process for purging holiday décor?

How do you store outdoor & oversized decorations?

How do you store lights to keep them from getting tangled?

How do you organize wrapping supplies?

If you love the finished look of beautifully decorated Christmas house, but dread the process of getting it all together–this is the episode for you!
