Holiday decorating is fun, and the lights give you a warm, fuzzy feeling that puts you in the holiday spirit. The fun comes to an end when the decorations have to be taken down and put away for next year. Here are four ways to store your seasonal decorations without too much hassle.
Artificial trees are popular during the holidays because they are easy to store and will last many years if they are taken care of properly. Before you choose a storage location for your tree, determine its weight. A garage or storage room closet is ideal for storing artificial trees.
2. Light Storage
Keeping holiday lights tangle-free is a hassle within itself. Purchasing a holiday light reel keeps your holiday lights tangle-free and ready to use for the next year. Improperly storing lights can cause broken bulbs and a shortage throughout the light string. You can avoid issues with holiday lights by purchasing a light reel. Most light reels hold at least 100 feet of holiday lights, and the set comes with two reels.
3. Ornament Storage
Ornaments are available in many different shapes, sizes, and colors. Some ornaments have more sentimental value than others. In any event, you want to keep your ornaments safe and prevent them from being damaged. One way to achieve this goal is to buy an ornament container. If you have a lot of ornaments to store, these containers are available with two or more shelves and tray dividers.
4. Gift Wrap Paper Storage
You can never have enough gift wrap and wrapping paper. You can collect all the wrapping paper you would like, but where will you store it? The two best storage places for unused gift wrapping paper is under the bed or behind the door in an organizer. Shoe organizers are perfect for storing gift wrap behind the door. Storage containers are ideal for under-the-bed storage.
Nothing puts you in the holiday spirit like holiday lights and other decorations. From fluffy Santa hats to stars on the tree, the ornaments and other decorations have to be removed and stored for the next holiday season. Removing ornaments from a tree can be a daunting task, but putting everything away is even more of a headache. It helps to be organized when storing things you only use once a year. When everything has a place, you know where to find it again when you need it.
