Organizing and Storing Your Holiday Decorations

Before you start packing your holiday decorations into portable storage units, it’s essential to organize and sort them for easier retrieval.

Assess and Declutter
Over the years, it’s easy to accumulate decorations that have become damaged or lost their appeal. Take this opportunity to declutter and donate or discard any decorations that no longer bring joy or hold sentimental value.

Categorize by Theme or Occasion
To make it easier to find specific decorations in the future, consider categorizing them by theme or occasion. For example, you can have separate plastic bins for Christmas, Halloween, and other holidays.

You can further categorize the decorations by type, such as ornaments, lights, or inflatables. This way, you can easily locate and retrieve the decorations you need without having to search through everything.

Utilize Clear Plastic Bins
When it comes to organizing your holiday decorations, using clear plastic bins is recommended. These bins allow you to see the contents without having to open each one. Label the bins with the corresponding holiday or theme for easy identification.

Additionally, consider using dividers or smaller containers within the larger bin. This keeps similar items together and prevents shifting during transport.

Take Inventory and Create a Checklist
Before packing your decorations, take inventory of what you have and create a checklist. This will help you keep track of your decorations and serve as a reference for future years. Note any items that may need to be replaced or repaired. Having a checklist will ensure that nothing is lost when it’s time to pack up and store the decorations.

Take Photos for Reference
For visual reference, consider taking photos of each container’s contents and attaching them to your inventory list. This will allow you to see what’s inside each container without having to open them. It can also serve as a reference point when it comes to updating or rotating your holiday decorations. Store these photos digitally or print them, and keep them with your inventory list.

Store the Inventory List and Photos in a Safe Place
To ensure that your inventory list and photos remain accessible and well-preserved, store them safely. Consider using a waterproof and fireproof container or storing them digitally. This will protect them from potential damage or loss and allow for easy reference.

Having an inventory list and photos will streamline the retrieval process and eliminate the need to search through containers. This system will save you time, reduce frustration, and make decorating for future holidays a breeze.

Tips for Storing Artificial Trees and Wreaths

Artificial Christmas trees and wreaths are often bulky and can be challenging to store properly. However, with the right techniques, you can keep these items in pristine condition for many years.

Carefully Disassemble and Label
If you’ve ever tried to assemble a large Christmas tree, you know the importance of labeling. Remove any detachable branches or sections and label them accordingly. This will make it easier to reassemble the tree correctly.

Invest in a Good Quality Tree Bag
A tree bag should be large enough to accommodate the fully disassembled tree and provide protection from dust and moisture. If you can locate a good quality bag, consider using plastic wrap or garbage bags to tightly wrap the sections of the tree. Secure the wrapping with tape to prevent it from unraveling. Store the tree vertically to save space and prevent damage to the branches.

Protect Wreaths with Storage Containers
To keep your wreaths in excellent condition during storage, consider using specialized wreath storage bags. They are designed to fit the shape and size of wreaths, protecting them from dust and crushing.

Alternatively, you can use large plastic bins or garment bags to store the wreaths. Place a layer of tissue paper or bubble wrap between each wreath to prevent them from sticking together or getting damaged. If possible hang them from a pegboard or hooks attached to the wall of your mobile storage unit.

Outdoor Decorations Need Special Attention
Outdoor holiday decorations, such as lights, inflatables, and yard ornaments, require special attention. These items are exposed to the elements and therefore need extra protection to keep them in top condition.

Clean and Dry Thoroughly
Outdoor decorations should be thoroughly cleaned and dried before packing. Remove any accumulated dirt or debris. This will prevent mold, mildew, or corrosion from developing during storage. Use a gentle cleanser and a soft cloth to clean delicate items, and allow them to air dry completely before packing.

Disassemble and Fold Properly
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for proper disassembly, folding, and storage. Some items may need to be deflated or collapsed before packing. Ensure that all parts are accounted for and stored together to avoid losing any components.

Protect from Moisture and Temperature Fluctuations
Outdoor decorations are more susceptible to damage caused by moisture and temperature fluctuations. Place silica gel packs in the storage containers to absorb any excess moisture.

Conclusion

If you’re tired of storing your holiday decorations in dusty attics and dingy basements, a portable storage container is your ideal solution. You can have it delivered to your doorstep, pack it on your schedule, and have it transported to a safe warehouse facility. You’ll enjoy having extra space in your home while knowing that your treasured holiday decor is protected and secure.

When it comes time to retrieve your decorations, they’ll be delivered to your home organized and damage-free. Rent a portable storage container and say goodbye to tangled lights and lost ornaments.
