I'm letting 'Christmas Go' this year...and probably every year after that too.
I was in the mall the other day and it totally made me depressed. SO MUCH STUFF! I couldn't help think most of stuff bought will be in a landfill within the year and what happens to all the crap not sold? And just the amount of plastic bags people had from the stores they purchased their stuff with will absolutely be in the landfill within 24 hours...
Made me sad for our world...and my soul!
I'll be decluttering my holiday this year...I'll be baking my gifts this year and making cards with the decorations I already have (I do have a 'crafty' box full of stuff). I will, however, be purchasing wine to go with my homemade goodies....and that will be that.
I live in a highrise condo and see all the garbage people don't recycle in our building. It's crazy. Literally just today, I saw a huge pile of plastic and cardboard boxes sitting by our 'landfill' garbage...the recycle bins are just a few feet away too...
I feel like I will actually enjoy this season this year
If I do decide to purchase some gifts...It'll be from locale, little shops. It's a struggle beyond belief in my city right now...little shops are closing it seems like every day.

@GreenValli Ask for help! Moving it self is stressful. And to move in December is even more stressful!
Part with things that are not usable. Broken chair, Old things you haven't used in 2 years. If you didn't fix or use in the past 2 years, you don't need it. If your inlaws brought things to store, call them to pick it up or it get's thrown out. Maybe there are things they want from your "not using pile".
Anything that still has life but you or your husband doesn't need, call the Donation pickup center. https://pickupplease.org/
My parents moved from a house to a condo and had to downsize a lot. It was emotional and VERY HARD. But after 10 years, they don't seem to miss it. It's a new way of living. You don't need that much. It's LIGHTER.LESS IS MORE good luck
