Now that Christmas is over, it’s time to start thinking about where to put all the “stuff” that accumulates at Christmas. Let’s talk about holiday storage tips for all those things you’ve got all over the place.
If you’re like me, you’re ready to put all the Christmas stuff away the day after Christmas. Don’t get me wrong. I love Christmas and everything about it. BUT, once Christmas is over, I’m ready to be done. We live in a small house, and the tree, the decorations, and everything else just take up so much room. I’m ready to have my living room back and things where they go.
So, I’ve come up with these holiday storage tips to help you (and me!) get our homes back in order after the holidays:
- Storage Containers – I absolutely recommend you use stackable plastic storage containers with lids as opposed to cardboard boxes to store your holiday items. If you’re looking for a good deal on plastic storage containers of any type, be sure to check out these promo codes from The Container Store. They have every type of container you can imagine. They have some made just for wreaths, some for ornaments, wrapping paper containers, and others for all the other items you’ve accumulated this holiday season. There’s even a promo code for free shipping on orders $75 and over, so you can have all the items shipped right to your house for no extra cost.
- Storing Lights – I have always had a love/hate relationship with Christmas lights. They are so beautiful, but somehow they always get so tangled while they’re in storage. Through the years, I’ve learned that if you store them neatly, odds are better that they won’t be quite so tangled. And, if you purchase a special box made just for storing Christmas lights, you may be very happy that you did come next year.
- Artificial Christmas Tree Holiday Storage Tips – If you use a real tree every year, you don’t need to worry about where to store your tree. But, if you’re like me and have an artificial tree, you know how big and bulky an artificial tree can be, and how much room they take up. There are many different storage options for Christmas trees, you just need to determine what is right for you based on where you’ll be storing the tree. For us, we store our tree in a storage unit, so we’ve invested in a large plastic container that’s big enough to hold all the pieces of our tree. They also make large bags, boxes, and totes depending on what you prefer for storage.
- Christmas Photos – To me, the photos taken at Christmas are what will come to mean the most one day. Ornaments break, items get lost, but photos can be treasured forever. Check out these promo codes from Legacy Box. You can preserve all of your Christmas memories in one place, and they can be passed on for generations to come. With the promo codes offered, you can save money on preserving all of your memories.
These are just a few holiday storage tips for your Christmas decorations. Store your items safely so that you can treasure them for years to come.
