This post is sponsored by The Home Depot.

Hi friends,

Are you started on your Christmas decor already? Or perhaps, you're just waiting until after Thanksgiving to dive in?
I just couldn't wait any longer and this past weekend I gave it a go! I'm so excited about it! 😊

I used to wait until the last weekend in November to haul all the boxes from the basement, but then, it was a marathon where I was just trying to finish on time.

This year I'm taking my time and I'll be savoring every single step. Then, I'm just going to enjoy it all.

So, today, whether you're started on your holiday decor or not, I have this simple tip that's going to make your holiday decor way easier:

Get all YOUR most essential holiday decor tools into one single box or bag!

Isn't it a pain on the butt making 37 trips to the garage or craft room when decorating a simple mantel or the entry?? 

Yes, you know how it goes ...

You need a couple of thumbtacks to secure that ribbon...

Two minutes later you find out a jingle bell would make that little hat way cuter...

Or... c'mon, that frame doesn't have the hardware to hang it in place! 😞

Creating a Christmas decor tool bag with my very own essentials was my first task at the beginning of the holiday season this year.

And I said, my very own essentials because that's true, the way I decorate might be completely different to yours.

I love pom poms and jingle bells and Christmas cards, but maybe you can give a jig about pom poms and Christmas cards and that's OK.

You have to grab the things you know you're going to need and place them inside a box or a bag or whatever you think fits nicely to you, and you can keep organized.

christmas cards, hot glue gun, pens, ties, all you need for holiday decor in one bag.

My tool bag: This wonderful Husky Tool Tote.

I've been using these totes in my garage to hold regular tools, you can see this post HERE where I talked about it.  However, this tote bag was different from those I already had in the garage.

Yep. This one has those 10 wonderful pockets and that's a huge difference!

All you put in those pockets is right there, READY to be used and put back immediately once you're done! Besides, you also have a big space inside to fill up with goodies, and the soft handle feels nice when you're hauling it all around your home.

So let me show you my essentials, maybe they're your essentials too:
Numbers 1 to 10 are all the contents inside the pockets.
Numbers 11 to 13 are what's stored inside the big centered comparment.

supplies like prunner, snip, utility knife, scissors, cards, screwdriver, tape, Ryobi hot glue gun in one bag for the holidays

1. Note pad, Christmas cards & thank you cards.
2. Pruner.  - A necessity when dealing with pine branches - garlands.
