Sift through seasonal decor. Before you get started decorating for the holidays this year, pull out all your boxes and give everything a good once-over. Test the twinkle lights, inspect the ornaments for broken pieces and toss spent candles. Give yourself permission to give away anything that no longer suits your style, but not before checking with your kids
or close relatives to see if they want it — lots of emotion gets wrapped up in holiday traditions, and you never know how others feel about something unless you ask. Those little angel candles you think are so tacky? They could be the thing that most reminds your son of Grandma.
