The fun of holiday decorating can quickly turn into a mess, and putting everything away can be a hassle. Holiday decorations differ slightly from most of our normal possessions as we tend to need them at least once a year They can also be pretty delicate which is why it is important to make sure you are storing them the right way. Now that the festive season has finally come to an end, here are some simple ways how you can store your Christmas and other seasonal decorations safely.
Declutter Every Year
This first step is crucial to storing your holiday decor because it prevents decorations from piling up too quickly. Consider carefully whether each ornament is necessary or has a use when you are putting them away. Spend some time organizing your space before storing your decorations.
There are typically two methods to arrange your holiday decorations. First, group similar products into categories, such as candles, Santas, snowmen, etc. If you set up your house the same way yearly, the second option is to categorize it by the rooms you use the decoration items in. By doing this, recalling how you decorated the prior year is no longer a guessing game. The easiest way to finish the season in a well-organized manner is to spend a few extra minutes storing your decor by room categories.
Invest in Proper Storage for your wealths
Put your delicate wreaths in crush-proof containers to keep them from becoming filthy or damaged. As another option, you can drape a plastic trash or dry-cleaning bag over the wreath before storing it.You can also try to fasten the bag’s bottom and wrap it around the hanger’s neck.
Separate Your Holiday Wrapping
Separate holiday wrapping material from everyday paper. If you separate it, you won’t have to search for or go through them and sort out when you need supplies for a birthday or party present wrapping.
Shrink Wrap Artificial Trees
Generally speaking, utilizing an artificial Christmas tree over the years is a good way to save time and money. However, it can be a time-consuming (and quite scratchy) procedure to put it together and take it apart each year. In addition, placing the branches in boxes may cause them to bend out of shape. Instead, consider folding the limbs down and wrapping the entire tree tightly in plastic wrap—either heavy-duty cling wrap or movable plastic wrap, which is available in most home improvement stores—to preserve your tree and save time.
Use a Storage Unit
For objects that take up a lot of space but are never used, a self-storage unit is the perfect solution. This applies to your holiday decos as well. Doing this will make room in your house for other things,especially if your house is relatively small. On the other hand, in a self-storage unit your deocs are guaranteed to stay in great condition, and gets solid protection from pests until the big day again. You just have to make sure you are choosing the right self-storage company for this.
