The Best Way To Pack & Store Your Holiday Decor

When the holidays finally come to a close, many homeowners find themselves anxious to get their decorations torn down andchristmas ornaments in a box boxed up. On that same note, we get how easy it might be to simply throw whatever you get your hands on in an old box, stash it in a closet, and worry about sorting through it all next Christmas. Unfortunately, that can make unpacking the following December quite a challenge!

Save yourself the hassle next year by packing your things up in a way that makes sense. We have some great tips for you below!

Toss What You Don’t Need

First things first, get rid of any items that you won’t use again down the line. If anything is broken or doesn’t function correctly, then it’s time to get rid of it. Do you have things you simply just don’t display anymore? Consider selling those items or donating them! If someone else can get more use of them than you do, it’s time to let go and focus on the things you can really appreciate year after year.

Organizing Your Items

Next, take what you have and organize it in a way that makes sense for what you decorate. One option would be to put indoor decorations in one area and outdoor decorations in another. Others put any ornaments and Christmas decorations in a separate area, as well. This way, you’ll know exactly where everything is, so you won’t be forced to dig through box after box to find a specific item.

Throughout this process, be sure to properly pack anything breakable or fragile to ensure it doesn’t break while in storage. On this same note, do your best to keep strands of lights untangled and easy to unravel for the next year.

It also might help to keep an eye out for nice boxes or storage containers that are designed specifically for Christmas decor, like wreaths or breakable ornaments. These are all fairly easy steps and the short amount of time you spend packing up will be well worth it when the holidays come back around next year!
