Christmas Storage Organization Ideas

I have not cleaned up Christmas, and I won’t for a few more weeks. But I love looking at great Christmas storage ideas for the cleanup when I do. Since I usually get a little bit more decor at the end of Christmas (sales hello!) and I have extra money from gifts, I like to purchase things for next year. One thing I love to do is purchase storage containers. They not only make excellent storage for decor, they also make excellent storage for all the extra toys and clothes my kids have received during the holidays.

Some great places to get storage containers inexpensively after Christmas is Home Depot, Target, Wal Mart, Lowes, Big Lots, and Dollar Tree. I love to purchase bins, wall organizers, closet organizers, and cases that I can put things in all year long. Check out some incredible storage ideas here.

You can also repurpose items to be used in different ways that can enable you to have more storage. Check out some incredibly cool ideas here from Spunky Junky.

It always feels great to start the new year off right with everything organized and clean. I feel great knowing I know where everything is and can get to it easily.

Christmas Dessert: Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

This year it is my turn to make dessert. I am a HUGE fan of sweets. I love to make fun desserts that my family can try. This year I wanted to try something different, and I was totally feeling cheesecake. So I scoured Pinterest for some delicious ideas and found this great one from Oregon Transplant.

Oregon Transplant Jessica has a fun bog with lots of great tutorials and recipes. This one for Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cheesecake was screaming my name. Made with Oreos, salted caramel, and chocolate chips is a very decadent cheesecake perfect for the holidays.

It is actually not that hard to make, and it makes the perfect elaborate looking dessert perfect for a holiday photo. Jessica made it for a birthday cake, which is also the perfect occasion. The cheesecake can be made ahead of time or prepared the day off. We made it ahead of time since we want it for Christmas day but I do not want to be baking that day.

A friend suggested changing up the flavors by choosing different flavors of Oreos. They make so many different ones now you could make lots of different versions of this cake by switching out original for red velvet or mint! We hope you enjoy whatever Christmas dessert you have on Christmas day!

Christmas Themed Style: The Boy’s Store

I love to dress up for the holidays. No, I do not mean dress up in fancy clothes, I mean dress up in FUN themed clothes. My kids always have holiday-themed pajamas. They always have at least one holiday-themed shirt or sweater. It is part of the fun of the holiday season to be goofy and wear something different and special. The Boy’s Store knows that kids like to be part of the festive fun so we have stocked a few items to keep them in the holiday spirits all season long!
