Ornaments can be easily broken or tangled if not properly stored. Deciding on the right storage method depends on the sizes and shapes of your ornaments.
Lights, the magical sparkles of Christmas. What is the best way to store that magic until next year? One way is to use plastic hangers.
Another popular way to do this is by using cardboard and cutting notches into the sides where the ends are. Then, you can slide each board vertically into a container for easy storage.
The trick to keeping lights untangled in storage is to wrap them tightly around an object and secure each end.
Christmas decor includes every other Christmas decoration not on your tree, like themed towels and pillows, nativity sets, candles and artwork. Consolidating everything into a few boxes may seem organized, but don't let yourself be fooled. There are a few ways to organize your decor that will make unpacking and repacking Christmas decor easy and enjoyable year after year.
One way to store your decor like a pro is to designate one storage container to each room. All pillows and decorations in the living room would go in the living room box, while the kitchen towels and decor in the kitchen box, and so on. This way, you can seamlessly unpack and pack one room at a time. Another organization method is to store like items together. For instance, all pillows in one box and all candles in another.
Once you've chosen a storage method, you can begin labeling and organizing your boxes accordingly. To create space or dividers between different items, try using shoeboxes or cardboard. If you need something softer, use old towels, T-shirts or fabric lining to place between breakable objects.
