I stick things on top of the dryer to get them out of the way until we need them.
Some of the containers that I keep the Christmas presents in are still out until I can finish getting everything where I want it.
This time of year is so busy that I could really use some magical elves to clean up around here or do the mundane tasks--laundry, dishes, cooking--so that I could just enjoy the fun projects and crafts with the kiddos. However, since the elves are busy working up at the North Pole, I guess I'll just keep looking past the piles! ;)
How do you keep things organized during this time if year? Or do you have messy stashes, too?
