Written by ORGANIZING MOMS Tips to help make your home more comfortable this Christmas season.

Lower your stress this year by doing a pre-Christmas declutter. Make room for enjoying the holiday season.

Find out which areas you should declutter before the holidays so you can make space to enjoy the season.

To start the season off on the right foot, and make way for all of the delights of the holidays, declutter the areas of your house that will be most impacted by Christmas clutter.

1. Christmas Decorations As you pull your Christmas decorations from storage, declutter the ones that you haven’t used in the past few years.

2. Display Areas Take a look at the areas of your home where you like to display your Christmas decorations. Is it time to get rid of the knick-knacks on your shelves?

3. Toys Now is the perfect time to let go of toys that kids have outgrown. Work with your child to declutter the toys they no longer play with.

4. Kitchen Take some time now to declutter, and make room for Thanksgiving and Christmas cooking! You'll thank yourself for making your kitchen less cluttered and easier to use.

5. Family Room Make room for enjoying Christmas stories, and watching holiday movies together as a family.

5. Books Clear off space on your bookshelves for holiday decor, or new books that you might acquire in the next few weeks.
