Here’s an easy tip to de-clutter holiday cards and photos: you need only a paper hole punch and book rings!
If you’re like me, by the time Christmas arrives your fridge is covered in cards, photos, and holiday letters. Last year I started punching a hole in the corner of them, putting them on a book ring, and hanging the ring on the fridge. When I put away our holiday decorations, I stored the cards, and this year when I decorated for Christmas it was fun to flip through them again. So, an annual tradition has started, I suppose.
I plan on keeping each year on a smaller ring, and looping all the smaller rings on to one big ring. Everything will be together, but separated by year. OCD much?!? 🙂
WHAT YOU NEED:
- paper hole punch
- office book rings
- optional: display hook to hang on the fridge or display hook for the wall
- optional: make a tag that displays the year
WHAT YOU DO:
Punch a hole in the corner of each card/photo/letter, and loop on to a book ring. Hang, then add to it as the cards roll in.
Of course, you could also use this method to store birthday cards, trip mementos, wedding cards, photographs, gift cards, or coupons.
