    I like your decorations! Now I have to ask ----- where do you store all that stuff? And do you keep it sorted according to the room it will decorate?

    I have over 40 plastic tubs I store everything in. They are labeled by the room they are for or in the case of the ornaments they are labeled by the tree they go on. Some go in the attic some in the closets the rest along with the trees are stored under the train layout.It is such a huge undertaking that I try to make it as organized as possible.

    I live in a condo right now and have minimal room to story my Xmas decorations. I'm looking forward to the day when I move into a larger home and can buy more decorations because I'll have a basement to store it all!

    My basement turned into a hoarder's basement! It's so bad that our daughter sent me the following email:

    Hoarders: If you have so much crap in your basement that you are unaware a homeless person is living down there you might have a problem.

    I gave away my 7-ft. tree, some 1970 ornaments, and my Dept. 56 New England Village. I still can't walk safely in my basement. My goal for 2011 is to part with lots more. But I'm not mailing my junk to anyone. It's going to family, Salvation Army, and Goodwill.

    Wow! That's really nice since your house is large. We live in a cracker box. I think our house is 1400 square feet.
