It’s that time of year again – time to take down all those Christmas decorations you so painstakingly put up. You can’t leave your decorations up year-round, so why not take this chance to improve your holiday decoration storage? No more mess or clutter, and get rid of everything you don’t want or need!
Throw Out What You Don’t Want
Obviously any items that have been broken, such as ornaments, should be tossed. You should also consider throwing out anything that no longer fits your taste, or that you avoid putting out because you just don’t like it.
Less is More
Sometimes when it comes to holiday decorations, it’s best just to stick with what you love the most. A little subtlety goes a long way.
Store Items by Category
This speaks for itself – organize items with like items. Keep ornaments together, as well as candles, Christmas lights, lawn decorations, dishes, etc.
Find More Sturdy Containers
If you’re like most people, you probably just reuse old cardboard boxes to store your decorations, but consider investing in more sturdy storage bins. This makes your belongings last longer and protects them from things like bugs and dust.
Holiday decoration storage and organization is a cinch as long as you have a system that you understand and stick to. Once you have that system, packing up your stuff for next year is easy as ever!
