I've used that saying in reference to make-up, jewelry, clothing. Now I am applying it to my Christmas decorating! In unpacking BOXES of Christmas goods; some items are tired and some I am tired of!

I'll pack away some stuff and hope that one day my sons will want to "inherit" some of the Santas and cute stuff.

I am most hopeful for a stress-less Christmas season! Sometimes less really is more!
