Clutter Rehab: The Christmas Decor

I took down the tree and was content to just put the ornaments in the garage cupboard until I realized they would not fit in the box I had planned for them. That started a purge and reorganization of the Christmas shelf. My husband purchased speakers for a project build recently and still had all the boxes. See how all the smaller boxes fit in the heavy duty shipping box made us both think of using them for the ornaments. 20 minutes later all 3 of the boys were cutting and building divider boxes for ornaments, while they did that I worked on sorting and purging for broken ornaments (a long sad story, but I now know ornaments should not be stored in Steralite drawers.). The boys brought me the divider boxes and I started putting ornaments in... I now have a box of black ornaments, a box of red ornaments, and 2 boxes of gold ornaments. The burgundy ornaments remained in their own box and the coca-cola ornaments are still in their previous box. Everything is put on one shelf. I still have 3 smaller boxes to sort (handmade ornaments and sentimental ornaments from growing up) but it got too cold in the garage to work on it anymore.  I am happy with the results so far and will continue on my clutter rehab journey... This afternoon I am working on a pile in my office.
