Clean Slate…


What did YOU do today? J & I spent the good part of today taking the Christmas decor down.

For us, it is not an easy feat as we must go up here….


and here…


and up here.


Yes! Three floors!

The storage for our decorations is in an attic space on the 3rd floor. Yes! 3rd floor!


I am exhausted.

Where do you store your Christmas decor?

It is nice when it is all picked up. The maids clean on Tuesday, and I cannot wait.

No need for cardio today.

Clean Slate, y’all!


  1. What did I do today? My husband and I went "over the hill" to do some shopping! We were gone 3 1/2 hours! We worked very hard yesterday on clearing away our Christmas decorations, and they are stored on a closet shelf and in our very tall crawl space! We even did the cleaning ourselves!:-)

  2. I am purging my closet as we speak SO THAT I can redo the space for the decorations. ARRRRGGGHHH!

  3. I have about half my stuff (maybe 60%) toted downstairs but not organized. If I am on the main floor I go down 14 steps...if I am on the upper level I go down 21 steps...not too many decorations on the upper level-thank goodness. I still have all the outside crap---er---beautiful stuff to take down but will wait till it is warmer to do that. That is stored overhead in our garage and we access that with a rolling library ladder.

    Looking good, Ron, looking good! xo Diana

  4. Looks like my storage containers! Mine are below my living room in a tall crawl space. You have a lot of stairs to climb and the last set would be the hardest! We finished ours today too! No maid for cleaning- just me!

  5. Whew! You two certainly got your workout. We store ours in the basement (the attic gets to hot in the summer here), so most decor only has to go down one flight of stairs. Thank goodness!

  6. We have a storage room off our master bath...I've been in and out of there so many times in the last three days!! I would have had everything away a lot faster but it's sooooooooo cold in there!

  7. I know what a good feeling it is to have everything put back in it's place. My decorations get stored in the basement. So, I guess I have fewer steps to maneuver than you. Steps can be exhausting. I have a lot at my house too. But it is a good way to keep my legs in shape! LOL!

  8. Wow! That certainly is a challenge. I don't envy you at all. Can you please send the maids over here when they finish? :)


  9. Yikes, that's a lot of stairs. I've got only one set to climb up into the attic. I usually don't even do that - I make my hubby do it! I pack everything away and he has to put it up in the attic. I actually get the short end of the stick on the deal, but I would never trust him to take care of my precious ornaments and decor. :)

  10. I'm exhausted just reading this blog! You need to get an air conditioned storage unit for all of your decorations. I pay someone to put up and take down Christmas decorations. He's coming this week to do that! ;) Have a great day! xoxo

  11. I feel your pain, Ron. I hate to take it down.


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
