For anyone who hasn’t yet taken down the Christmas tree, Donna Jo Swanson of Little Willow Traders recommends dismantling the tree in an organized manner.

Then packing up the decorations in such a way that they’ll be ready for next year.

She offered the technique during the Christmas open house at the Sheridan Inn at which time she suggested weeding out ornaments you no longer use, when you’re taking down the tree.

By doing that, she said, you’ll be all ready to go for next year.
