I absolutely love the holidays! I love decorating, shopping, cooking and all the things the holiday’s bring. What I don’t love, however, is organizing for the holidays… You’re probably asking yourself what do you mean by this? Well, I have three little girls and with three girls brings a lot of “stuff.”
One thing the girls and I do before the holiday season “officially” hits is clean, clean, and clean. Instead of spring cleaning we like to do what we call “holiday cleaning.” I have to say it isn’t my favorite thing to do, but after it’s over it’s so worth it.
The girls and I have started a tradition the past few years of donating toys and items we don’t use or play with anymore to local charities around town. At first they give each toy a good look over to make sure they really want to donate it. By the end of the day they are getting rid of toys so quickly that I can’t even keep up.
During our holiday cleaning session I had to run down stairs and put a few lose items in my oldest daughters drawer. Boy, was I ever sorry I did that. The drawer was such a disaster something had to be done with it immediately. We quickly stopped what we were doing, loaded up the car and headed out to Walmart. We needed to grab a few items to keep this drawer organized. I found these super cute and inexpensive Ziploc® Brand products available at our local Walmart. Ziploc® Brand has a wide variety of storage options of all shapes and sizes. We were able to use these cute extra small Ziploc® Brand containers for her hair accessories and earrings. Then for her larger headbands and bows we able to us the large rectangle Ziploc® Brand container. Just look at the difference a few Ziploc® Brand containers made in a small un-organized space!!
Now, we have one happy momma and can finish our holiday cleaning and get to the rest of our items on our to-do list.
After we finished our cleaning we could get to the things we enjoy! The girls and I love creating gifts for their teachers and classmates. This year we thought it would be fun and cute to create “snowman soup”. Ziploc® brand snack bags makes it super easy to create such an easy, fun gift to hand out at their parties.
- Ziploc® Brand snack bags or when you can find them, the Holiday print versions of Ziploc® brand bags
- Ready-to-mix hot chocolate packages
- Mini marshmallows
- Candy canes
- Hershey’s peppermint kisses
Stuff the Ziploc® brand snack bags with the goodies and seal with the snowman soup directions. Easy peasy!
We’d love to see how you use both the regular Ziploc® brand bags and the special holiday print editions!
Ziploc® Brand bags and containers are available at your local Walmart (along with everything else you need for the holidays).
Happy Holidays Mommas!!
