With the holiday season right around the corner, you are probably busy wrapping up your Christmas shopping while also getting your house ready to host family members and friends. Unfortunately, this also means the Christmas clutter can dominate your house relatively quickly. On the other hand, you do not have to let clutter conquer your home. Here are a few important tips from Closet & Storage Concepts of Phoenix and Scottsdale you should keep in mind if you want to prevent clutter from ruining your Christmas.

Clean Out the Fridge Now

The first thing you need to do is clean out the refrigerator. When you get ready to host a lot of people, this means a lot of food. You need to make sure food ends up in the pantry and the refrigerator. You do not want it sitting on all of the counters. Therefore, take a look at the refrigerator and get rid of the items you don’t need now. This will create more space for extra food later.

Create a Designated Place for the Christmas Gifts

Next, you need to think about where you will put the Christmas gift. If you simply drop them in the closet, you may have to relocate a lot of shoes, clothes, and coolers, which means they will end up on the floor. Don’t let this happen. Go ahead and carve out a spot for the Christmas gift you buy now. That way, you can keep them out of sight without allowing them to displace other important items. This is important in keeping your house clean.

Where Should the Christmas Tree Go?

Finally, think carefully about where the Christmas tree will go. Even though a lot of people like to put the Christmas tree in the living room, you need to make sure it does not displace another large item. Otherwise, you will run out of space in your house. Think carefully about how you want to rearrange the furniture, and consider using a tree skirt to prevent the Christmas tree from making a mess in the house.
