Tips for storing your holiday decorations

Organizing your decorations at the beginning of the season and at the end when it’s time to put everything away makes it easier to find what you need next year.

Here are some great tips and advice on how to properly store your holiday items so they are easy to access for this season and in good condition for seasons to come.

Ornaments can be fragile and so need a protective container in which to safely store them.

One easy way is to buy clear plastic bins and repurpose them specifically to cradle fragile ornaments and keep them free from damage. You can do this by first cutting a piece of cardboard to place on the bottom of the bin. Then use a glue gun to attach paper cups to the cardboard.

You can then wrap an ornament in tissue paper and then place one in each of the cups. Once the cups have been filled, close the lid on the bin and label it with sticker labels and a permanent marker so it’s easy to find later. Keep ornament styles grouped together for better organization. You can also purchase ornament storage boxes that are specifically designed to contain fragile ornaments.
