Christmas Storage Solutions | Residential & Business
When Christmas is over and it’s time to take down and put away all of your Christmas decorations, storing them properly will make them last for many years to come. Whether you are packing away your decorations from home or at the office, don’t just throw everything into a few boxes and be done with it.
Here are some Christmas storage solutions to keep your decorations safe and organized until next year.
Ornament boxes are a great way to store your ornaments until next season. They are containers or boxes that contain dividers to keep your ornaments separated so they don’t bump against each other in the box and break.
You can even save some money by making your own. Use plastic cups to put your ornaments in, and glue them onto a piece of cardboard. These can then be stacked in a box or plastic tote.
Of course, the original box your tree came in is the perfect storage solution for your tree, but unfortunately, they don’t always hold up well. When the original box is not longer an option, there are many alternative storage solutions.
Go to your local home hardware store and pick up a heavy-duty tree bag. They come with handles so are easier to carry and store.
Instead of taking your tree apart, you can wrap it up with some shrink wrap. When the next holiday season rolls around, simply cut away the shrink wrap and fluff up the branches.
Garland and Wreaths
When you are ready to start your Christmas decorating, one of the most frustrating things is to open a box of your decorations and find that your garland has twisted all around everything. A creative solution is to find a plastic water bottle and place the garland inside.
Wreaths can get quite large and can pose a problem when it comes to being stored. Fortunately, there are a variety of specially made containers just for wreaths. These will keep them safe from damage and dust free for next year.
You can also find some cheaper garment bags to store your wreaths and hang them in a closet out of the way until next year.
Tangled up Christmas lights can be one of the most frustrating parts of the decorating process. By storing them properly in the first place, you will make things much easier on yourself.
There are a couple of good options when it comes to storing your Christmas lights. You can wind them around your elbow, like you would an extension cord, and then wrap the end around the bundle you’ve created and tuck it in.
You can also use a piece of cardboard to act as a spool for your lights. Wrap your lights around the piece of cardboard and tuck in the end.
Christmas wrapping paper storage containers are a perfect solution to keep all of your wrapping items organized and together. They can come in many sizes and forms. They even have pockets to store your bows, ribbon, tape, scissors and nametags.
Rent A Self Storage Unit
A self storage unit is a great storage solution to store all of your Christmas decorations until they are needed again next year.
All of those Christmas decorations, ornaments and especially the Christmas tree, can take up a lot of valuable space, especially at an office.
