All tidied…

I took down the Christmas tree and B took it back out to the barn. Then I put everything I used as decorations in one bin along with leftover bags to be reused. Just one bin and I labeled it Christmas 2019, what I used.

It has been quite freeing to have Christmas be so minimal. It used to take me 2 days( of course, just pacing myself) to get everything put away right. This has been an eyeopener. I’m planning to go thru the 2 bins out in the barn sometime this summer( when it’s warm out there) and check if there was something else I would have liked to use. The rest, including all the Hallmark ornaments, will just get labeled for my kids whenever they have a place of their own. cdafb2f3-5d12-47d5-a1b9-0eb08ae93aa7.jpeg

The lights will be put in the tree bag so everything is together.

I need to have cleared off surfaces and very little on the table as it just feels like a fresh start. I’m thinking of getting a fresh new orchid though as I like that they last a really long time.

Our weather is quite cold, 30 degrees this morning but sunny. Tomorrow it’s supposed to rain.

Today I’m going to do a freezer inventory and see what needs to be used up and then plan some menus. I’m thinking of doing a No Spend January but I’ll think about some more. I have done these in the past and although I do get a lot out of it, I also seem to delay getting things that are needed and then it seems I spend money on them eventually. I think what I will do is do No Spend on anything extra like the other space heater we need. But things like household I will still buy( like dishwasher soap). Well, I’ll think about it till January 1st.
