One of best things about the holiday season is the fact that you get to decorate for Christmas. You can have fun decorating your Christmas tree, the inside of your house, and even the outside of your house. Unfortunately, once Christmas is over, you need to know how to store Christmas decorations safely and easily. These tips will show you how to store Christmas decorations until next Christmas.
How to Store Christmas Decorations
Invest in Totes
When it comes to storing your holiday décor, investing in some totes is always a good idea. Storage totes can be used to keep your holiday décor safe in between the holiday seasons, saving them from damage by dust, pests or water. Storage totes are also easy to stack, making it a smart choice for saving space.
Store by Room
When it’s time to put your holiday décor away, try keeping each area’s decorations separate. Put all of your Christmas tree decorations away in one tub and the outside decorations away in a different tub. Do this for each room in the house so that next year, all of your decorations for each area are already together. This will make it easier than ever to decorate for the holidays.
Keep your Tree Whole
If you have the storage space, you might want to consider keeping your tree put together when storing it. Instead of taking it apart and spending time each year putting it back together, simply use a large, plastic sheet or bag and wrap it around your tree. Put your tree in a corner in the basement or garage and next year it’ll be ready to decorate all over again.
Hide It Away
You only use your holiday décor once a year. Due to this fact, you can store it in a hard to reach place. When it’s time to put your décor away, find somewhere you can hide it away, such as the back area of the basement, the top shelf in the garage, or even in the rafters of a shed. This keeps your holiday décor out of the way during the year until you need it next Christmas.
These tips can help make storing your holiday décor easier than ever. What tips do you have to share?
