Do you keep them for a long time or get new ones every year? What do you do with the *old* items that are still in working/useable condition? Trash it or give it away/donate? Do you make your own decor items? Feel free to share pix of any from any holidays.

Keep unless it's not working and even then try and salvage what I can.

Keep everything until it breaks or becomes too dingy looking. The only new thing I get every year is an ornament. We get a new one from different vacations or events that year.

My oldest is starting college this year and we are getting a Christmas ornament from the campus store.

I use mostly fresh decor...greens, pinecones, etc.  I love the smell of pine!!

Last year, I got all new LED string lights....they're cheaper to use and don't get hot like regular lights.  The older lights still worked so I donated them to goodwill.

We've kept until moving across the country. Then we keep only ones with special meaning.
