    7 Tips For Organizing Holiday Decorations

    It’s hard to pretend putting away holiday decorations is as fun as setting them up. Standing up the tree, watching strands of lights twinkle, rediscovering a special ornament: it’s magical. That said, packing up and storing decorations doesn’t have to be a dreaded chore. With the right organization tactics (and mindset!), taking down decorations can both be a breeze and a bonding experience. Below are some of our best ideas and tips to save time and have some fun moving Christmas and holiday decorations into storage. 

    1. Upgrade the Ornament Storage

    Old newspaper. Recycled wrapping paper. Lightbulb boxes. Big empty bins. We’ve tried all the DIY ideas, and nothing comes close to this storage box specially made for ornaments. A huge time-saver when the tree has to come down.

    2. Reserve a Special Space for the Christmas Tree

    It’s the king of all holiday decorations, so why not give it a palatial storage solution for the off-season? A dedicated Christmas tree storage bag doesn’t just protect branches, it keeps them all together to save time next year not having to hunt for a missing bough.

    3. Keep The Kids Busy

    If kids aren’t loving the Christmas clean-up, try giving them ownership over organizing their playthings. With this toy storage organizer, they’ll feel in charge designating special places for their special things. Blocks can go in one bin, bricks in another, and only princess dolls with pretty purple dresses in THIS one.

    4. Keep the Wrapping Paper Supplies All Together in One Place

    They say a perfectly wrapped present only requires three pieces of tape. And that’s fine, unless you can’t find the tape. Call off the hunt for a missing tape dispenser by storing it (plus ribbons, bows, and other gift-wrap accessories) with the wrapping paper rolls in one single container.

    5. Commit to Giving Thoughtful Gifts Year-Round

    Birthdays, anniversaries, or national pancake day? No matter the pretense, a beautifully wrapped present with crisp creases, a satiny bow, and curlicued ribbons brightens anyone’s day. And a rolling wrapping paper storage cart makes those thoughtful, perfect presents all the more within reach.

    6. Think of Wreaths as a Seasonal Design Element

    Wreaths are up on our doors all year. After the holidays, we swap evergreen boughs for something wintry, minimalist, and twiggy. In spring, the wreath is fresh and floral. And when winter rolls around again, our holiday wreath is primed for a return after a slumber in this handy (and very merry) storage bag.

    7. Have a Catch-All Bin at the Ready
