To simplify decorating for Christmas, I have each room's decorations placed in it's own clear tub with the name of the room written on a white card and taped to the inside so it is visible. Once you have decorated, take a picture of each area in that room and put that photo(s) in the box when you put everything away. Next Christmas, get out the boxes and use the photo to remind you where each item goes. I have been doing this for over 30 years. Have my daughter doing it to. We can't imagine doing it any other way!
