As I continue to pack up our Christmas decor I’m trying to be more intentional about what I want to see when I open up all those Rubbermaid bins next year.

I’m embarrassed to admit that half of the 8 bins that I have are still full of stuff that we didn’t even use.  I’m going to label those as unused stuff and also start a bin for a Christmas Swap for next Novemberish.  My sister went to a Christmas Swap where everyone took stuff they don’t use anymore and brought something home that they loved.  It’s basically the same concept of a Swap Meet but it’s all Christmas stuff.  You know garland you didn’t use, wreaths, lights, wrapping paper, Christmas dishes.

I’m hoping someone out there will invite me to a Christmas swap so I can make sure some of my hard to part with pretties will go to homes where they will be loved.  I’ve got a few things that I’ll donate to the Goodwill and some other junk that I’m not ready to part with yet.  I’ll make sure to pack the swap box near the front of the decorations so I can grab it quick at the beginning of the season next year.

Have you ever gone to a Christmas Swap?  Would you go to one?  Will you have one and invite me to your swap so that I can just show up?
