How many boxes of Christmas stuff do you have?  I have at least 3 big boxes and each year I added more to my collection.  Oh boy! After Christmas sale is so irresistible.

This year I am on a mission: Less is Better, and I hope I can complete my mission soon.

I am thinking that my seasonal decorations shall be add on items to everyday stuff.  Thus, less replacing, packing, unpacking, etc.  Are you with me?

I also want my seasonal decorations can be stacked and stored flat, like these Wooden Christmas Tree … :: Source and Tutorial :: Handspire
