Do You Collect Holiday Decorations?

Do You Collect Holiday Decorations?

While we're on the subject of collecting this month, it seems like an appropriate time to address seasonal collections. Somehow they seem to fly below the "hoarder radar" and get a pass since they're only out at certain times during the year. It's coming up on all sorts of holiday festivities and we're curious, how much holiday fare are you really holding onto?

Holidays are fun, there's no doubt about that and a house filled with little pumpkins or fall leaves always makes the place feel new and fresh, especially this time of year when you get to trade them out in rapid succession.

Although decorations for things like Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas can feel like a splurge or a treat, they are easy to find on clearance if you shop a year prior for the one that's upcoming. Because it's easy to find deals, it's also easy to tell yourself that you need certain things and even the best of us say yes to discount prices sometime.

Do you have crates and tubs of festive holiday decor sitting in your basement? Attic? Under your bed? Are you extra festive but fighting for space in your storage areas for other things? Share your thoughts on holiday decor in the comments below!
