Decoration Storage Basics

Having a few things in place before you pack up for the season is essential to avoiding stress. Even better – it’s much simpler than you think. All it takes is following some of these storage basics to ensure you’re making the most out of your favorite holidays!

Invest in clear plastic bins. This is one of the most helpful tips out there – no matter what kind of storage you’re preparing for. Being able to see what’s inside lets you figure out what is where; making decorating that much more simple and organized.

Label everything. One of the easiest things you can do to simplify any unpacking process is having clear, accurate labels. First, label your boxes or bins by the holiday. Then, specify whether they’re indoor or outdoor decorations. You may even consider writing what decorations go where, which will make decorating a breeze.

Stock up on tissue paper and bubble wrap. It’s no secret that decorations are extremely prone to breaking. That’s why it’s always a good idea to have extra on hand in case you take in some extra decorations from the kids that year, or some items need a little more protection.

Use sandwich bags for more than just sandwiches. Nails, hooks, extra light bulbs – it always seems like the smallest items are the first to get misplaced or disappear altogether. Avoid those headaches and place those things in sandwich bags and tape them to the inside of the box. Need a nail to hang a skeleton? It’s in the bag. Need to replace the broken bulb on a string of Christmas lights? It’s in the bag.

Consider a climate controlled storage unit. Extra-sensitive or valuable decorations need extra-special care. Whether it’s a delicate heirloom or homemade ornaments made with dried food or pinecones, a climate controlled unit can add another layer of protection. By keeping the unit a consistent temperature year round, it can help prevent deterioration, discoloring, and mold buildup.
