Oh no! It’s time to put all those beautiful decorations away! There are so many storage possibilities and gadgets to try to make the process go more smoothly now. Here is just one website you can check out: www.thisoldhouse.com/ideas/12-smart-ways-to-store-holiday-decorations.
Common sense will also prevail to make the process go easier. Here are just a few suggestions:
- Before recycling all that packaging material that came with those presents, consider if any of it can be used to wrap fragile ornaments in.
- If any strands of lights are not working, don’t put off until next year what should be decided today. Now is the time to either fix them or trash them. Do you have essential decorations that need to be replaced for next holiday season? Seasonal sales might have just what you are looking for at a much lower price.
- Label boxes or consider clear bins for storage. You know what items are used first, store them last for easier access next year.
