Christmas is approaching and it won’t be long till its time to pack down. Many of our customers take advantage of their self-storage to pop seasonal items away safely out of sight to be retrieved next year.
Christmas is fast approaching. And before long, it will be time to think about how to store away Christmas decorations. Sorry, we don’t mean to spoil the fun and give off bah humbug vibes, but a little planning goes a long way and can turn a boring, slightly depressing post-Christmas task into an easy pack down.
You want to store away your household Christmas decorations in an organised fashion so they can be reused next year. At Now Storage, we have come up with some tips on storing away your Christmas decorations properly. You don’t want them cluttering up your home living space all of January!
The inclination to be hasty when tidying up your Christmas decorations can cause you to lump every item together into a large container and get it out of sight. However, you’ll extend the shelf life of your decorations if you pack away each item carefully.
Christmas decorations need to be wrapped and placed in a box or storage container. Put ornaments, tinsel, and baubles in containers which divide each one separately. Colour code and label boxes with descriptions on the outside so you can easily find the decorations you need next year.
Make sure there’s no moisture left on the tree before packing it away. Dismantle it into sections and store the pieces separately in boxes so they’re protected from dust. Don’t forget to label the containers so they can be easily identified next Christmas time.
As tempting as it might be to take down your lights quickly and throw them into a bag, it’s worth doing it properly – you’ll thank yourself next year!
Salvage whatever gift wrap, gift bags and decorative boxes you can from the carnage of Christmas Day (including wrapping paper, ribbons, tissue paper etc). You can then reuse them next year – saving you money while also being better for the environment! Store them away in a secure container with a lid.
