WHERE I STASH MY HOLIDAY DECORATIONS

I've finally got about 99% of my holiday stuff put away. The cats are so happy to have the extra space back in the living room (sans tree) to play in! I was recently asked, "Where do you store your Christmas decorations? You have so many!". Come, I'll show you!

Everything goes in the (unfinished) basement. Mister bought some cabinets on sale about five years ago and kindly gave them to me to use. (After all, he does have a barn and two sheds of his own!)

This is my Christmas cabinet. It holds almost everything except for the china/glasses/mugs.

These two cabinets house other seasonal stuff, plus china and glassware, and the closed door has craft stuff behind it.
And, there you have it! Any of you want to share where you keep your decorations?

Wonderful storage...almost like Phyliss over at AROUND THE HOUSE.

We put ours up in the attic. Pull down stairs makes it easy for us and keeps them out of the way for another year.

Jealous! Yes, I must confess, I'm jealous! I have to get Worker Bee to get everything down from our holiday storage areas. I'll have to post him putting everything away. It's quite a challenge. I love how organized your cupboards are. Very nice! So glad you shared!

You have inspired me now to try a tidy up a bit! Oh how I wish I could be this organised! The cupboards are brilliant.

I'm going to do some storage in cabinets also. I found an old cabinet and while it has made it to the carport hasn't made it to the basement yet. I want it strictly for Christmas Dishes and glassware.
