KonMari Challenge Week 9: SEASONAL/HOLIDAY

Applying the KonMari method to our Christmas decorations, coincided with us wanting to change our decor this year. Rather than just decorating for Christmas, we want to change our decor seasonally.

Living in the city, it's easy to become disconnected from nature. We live close to a park, so I can help Baobao to connect that way, but another is to bring the season into our home. At the moment we only have winter decorations, but hope to with time expand those with the seasons. We also need to make room for the decorations that Baobao will make this year as part of her activity advent.

Interestingly, this made it quite easy to discard some of our Christmas decor. Gone are the elves and Father Christmas related ornaments. Gone is anything with the words 'Merry Christmas' on. Instead we're keeping lots of stars, natural ornaments and items that bring light into the home, that we can use throughout the winter season.
