When your schedule is overloaded with meetings at work, events, planning meals and family activities every day, it can be hard to focus on keeping the house tidy. Before you go on a full-on decorating spree for Thanksgiving and Christmas, pause for a moment and think about the state of your home.
Are your current storage options really working for you? Or are they making your day-to-day clean up routine more of a hassle? Taking time to declutter, organize and clean before the festivities really begin can often help to calm the chaos of the season.
The holiday season should be a joyous time of fun and excitement! If there are any ways that you can let go of some of the stress, you should do it.
We’re here to help you eliminate stress this year with the following holiday organization tips:
Downsize Your Decor
Okay, so we know that the holiday season means as much tinsel as you can manage, with the tallest tree and two hundred twinkly lights covering it, but if you want a way for your house to look less cluttered it may be best to downsize the decor.
Choose holiday decorations that bring something amazing to your home. Minimal decor can be just as beautiful as a dazzling array of color and tinsel. Decorate the house exactly the way you like, then take a photo for next year. This way, someone else can chip in and help!
Donate and Declutter With ezeGlide Rollout Shelves
You need your home to be organized, especially if you’re planning to have visitors and overnight house guests partying alongside you.

Alternatively, you can easily upgrade your storage. ezeGlide rollout shelves are custom designed to be the perfect solution.

Make Meal Prep Merry
You may be prepping to cook up a huge turkey at Thanksgiving, but that doesn’t mean you have to cook from scratch for every meal. Make a list of breakfasts and lunches that you can premake and freeze. Meal prepping will help you get ready to serve delicious dishes that you can grab easily and defrost overnight, even for a hungry crowd. It’s all about making life easier for you!
Download and print recipes that you plan to make and add them to a folder in the kitchen so that you can read them easily. Make a list of what’s in the pantry and the freezer and plan which days you’ll make those meals.
Your Happy Holiday Home
Preparing for the holidays shouldn’t be a stressful time. You should be able to relax as much as possible, and for that to be enjoyable, you simply need a well thought out plan, smart storage solutions and the gift of time.
Invite family and friends to help out; make meal prep and holiday decorating a family task. When all else fails, call in the professional cleaners and decorators for the best holiday season ever.
