Must Have Christmas Storage Products and Ideas
The holidays are coming to a close and we are all facing the task we dread the most – packing up the all that decor. Each year, I try to get creative and so the following year – everything will be easier to find. But these Christmas Storage Products and Ideas are put in place every year.
Christmas was a great success here at The Everyday Home. The first half was a whirlwind of parties and get togethers and shopping, but then we settled down after the kids got out of school – and it was baking cookies and visiting with Santa and just enjoying the time together. Now reality has set in and I am staring at all of these decorations, and cringing. All those baubles and balls and yards and yards of lights and garland need to come down. Each year, I try to organize it all so that decorating next year will be even easier. I don’t always get things placed exactly like I want, but I do manage to get my lights and ornaments and wrapping paper stored correctly. Here are some Must Have Storage Christmas Storage Products and Ideas for your Christmas Decor.
Usually, I leave all my decorations up until January 6th, Old Christmas. But, this year – I am antsy to get my house back to normal and start on some DIY projects. I will leave the tree up until Jan 6th – but as soon as this chest cold eases up a bit, I am gonna start the process. How do you store your decorations?
Rather, ours looked more like this…. 😀
Great idea, huh? Here are some other great organizing ideas for your Christmas decor and wrappings…
Use a clear, plastic garment bag to hold your leftover rolls of wrappings. Hangs easily in a closet.
Wrap your Christmas Lights around a plastic clothes hanger.
An inexpensive plastic bin with holes makes a great Ribbon Storage Bin.
Smaller clear, plastic cups can be used instead of larger red Solo cups. For smaller, unbreakable items such as my snowflakes, pinecones, faux snow, etc. – I use these to organize and mark the items inside…
Good ole’ Ziplock Bags. I stack all smaller items in the same bin. Christmas wreath storage was always an issue for me, too. Right now, I have at least 6 different Christmas wreaths, and I have no clue how many Holiday Wreaths I have total. Let’s just say – “several.”
Yes, you can spend the money on these “Wreath Keeper Bags.”
But, a large trash bag and a clothes hanger works just as well.
All of my seasonal wreaths are hung and stored this way. I have created tags which mark what season the wreath is for and also a short description. My wreaths hang in my attic.
I have concluded that my Christmas decorations reproduce like rabbits. Each year, I need at least 2-3 more bins. But, this year – I have started pulling out decor which I no longer use or which does not fit my style any longer. I already have at least 3 bins of decor I will donate or take to the consignment shop.
So, how about you? Do you have any ingenious ideas for storing decorations you would like to share with me?For now though, I think another nap is in order. xxoo, Barb
