Christmas Storage Tips
Get a jump start on your resolution to be more organized this year! As you begin putting away your cherished holiday decorations, keep some of these holiday storage ideas in mind that will make life so much simpler.
Garland and Lights Wind Up Storage
Garlands can be easily tangled when not properly put away. With this simple Christmas garland storage you just might avoid the tangled mess next year. The little niches on the sides help to keep it securely in place.
And what about Christmas light storage? This is awesome and works for wrapping lights on it too! No more broken lights for next year. Wrap up your lights and garland and pack away in a tote for safe keeping.
Ornament Storage Box
These containers are the perfect solution for ornament storage ideas. They come collapsed so you can then easily assemble and add in the storage inserts that you need. It is also multi-layered so you can fit several rows of ornaments on top of each other.
Collapse it down when not in use for the season.
The storage tote has handles which makes it easier to carry.
Wrapping Paper Storage Organizer
Nothing is worse than sitting down to wrap presents and realizing you don't have scissors or tape. This organizer keeps everything in the same place and can be used all year. I even use it to store my gift bags and tissue paper.
Wrapping Paper Silicone Slap Bracelet
Once upon a time I would use tape or rubber bands to hold my wrapping paper together but no more! These nifty devices are like slap bracelets. They are awesome and are designed to hold your wrapping paper in place. Pick these up on Amazon for a thrifty price!
For all of my long strands of ribbon that I use on the tree and on the mantel, I use cord bundlers to wrap these and store them away. See how I use them on my garland decor. Make sure that when using cord bundlers you don't wrap them too tightly or the ribbons will crease.
Christmas Tree Storage Bags
The boxes that most decorations come in tends to get broken or destroyed over time. It's easier to find solid solutions that will last instead of holding your packaging together with 5 layers of tape each year. Get rid of your old tree box and swap over to tree bags.
Hard Cases Under Bed
Hard cases are a little more expensive. They are worth it if you buy a decent brand. I have had these storage bins for years and they are still going strong. They are perfect for storing garlands, long stems or even wrapping paper. And I love that they can slide under beds easily!
Tree Skirt Hangers
Keep your tree skirt looking amazing and not dingy. Instead of shoving your tree skirts in a box, try folding them over a hanger and hanging them up in a closet or on a hook in your storage room. This will keep them long lasting.
When boxes or bins take up too much room, switch over to these compact wreath holders. They keep the dust off your wreaths so they are ready to go for the next year!
Small Label Maker
As you can see these storage bins have been around for a long time. I learned early on that having a label maker is a better idea than writing on the bin. The label can easily be swapped out to accommodate our changing storage needs.
