Holiday Decoration Storage – Eight Tips that Work!

Do you enjoy decorating your home for the holidays?

If you love setting out holiday decorations but hate putting them away, check out our EIGHT tips for creating a holiday storage system that works:

  1. Create a decorating theme and stick to it! When your decorating has a theme or colour scheme, items that no longer work are obvious. Either amend your theme or let the “orphans” go.
  2. Store only what you want, use and love! When you begin your decorating this year, and uncover items that no longer work for you, share or donate them immediately.
  3. Keep original packaging. Nothing protects fragile holiday decorations better than the original packaging.
  4. Store “like” with “like”. Store house decorations and tree decorations separately so you know where everything is when the urge to decorate comes over you.
  5. Use vertical space. Clear plastic shoeboxes work wonders for small, decorative items. Identical boxes can be stacked on a shelf or in a box to maximize storage space. Easy-to-see, easy-to-find!
  6. Create a Holiday Tool Kit. Have everything – ornament hooks, tape, wire cutters, extra lights, scissors and ribbon – in one place when you need it!
  7.  Label everything. Decorating is meant to be fun, not a chore. When you have a system in place and everything is labeled, there are no surprises! You know where everything is when you are ready to get started.
  8.  Set aside time. Schedule time for decorating and “de-decorating”. Create a holiday storage system this year and next year’s decorating will be more enjoyable.

Wishing you the BEST of the holiday season!

May 2017 bring you everything you’re hoping for…and more!
