The countdown is on to the big day – Christmas!

If you are anything like me, you’ve probably found that some pre-planning for Christmas in October & November can make your December so much more enjoyable – with time to focus on family and friends – rather than 20 mad dashes to the shops for last minute items! And I don’t know about you, but I definitely want to avoid over packed shops in the middle of summer at all costs!

Perhaps you have been pondering pulling out your old Christmas decorations.  Do you like the decorations you have? Do you look forward to pulling them out? Or do they make you feel ambivalent? Now is a great time to donate the Christmas items that you no longer love & use. This way they are more likely to get into the hands of people that could use them this year!

If you want to LOVE your Christmas decorations – knowing how to shop for them is key!

After years of honing my Christmas decorations (like a finely tuned machine haha!), I have figured out how to get the most out of my collection, and the best way to select baubles as I shop –  creating a collection that will stand the test of time, that I can’t wait to pull out year after year!
