How to Store Your Holiday Decorations Until Next Year

Storing your holiday decorations at the end of the year shouldn’t be a hassle. Use our tips to make the most of your space—or ours! a collection of different Christmas decorations

As 2020 comes to an end, the holiday season—and decorating for it—is a welcome bright spot. You’re not alone if decorating is one of your favorite wintertime activities! What happens when it’s time for the tree to come down and the boughs of holly to be boxed up, though? One of the best gifts you can give yourself this year is a massive storage upgrade for your holiday decorations. Let’s look at some tips for stowing your tree, ornaments, and other decorations safely until next year.

How to Store Christmas Ornaments

Christmas tree ornaments can be intimidating to pack, especially if they’re made of glass or another fragile material. Ornament cases with dividers make easy work of placing your decorations in holiday storage. By keeping your bulbs, balls, and assorted characters or keepsakes separated from one another, you’ll remove the risk of damage when putting them into storage at the end of the season.

Storing Christmas Trees and Accessories

Whether you invest in a zippered cloth bag on wheels or a reusable large plastic tote, do yourself a favor and toss out the original cardboard box your tree arrived in. Reusable storage will keep your Christmas tree free of damage from moisture and reduces the stress of trying to stuff it back inside a cardboard container that just can’t hold it anymore.

If you’re not a fan of pre-lit trees, we recommend unspooling strands of lights from the tree and grabbing either a spare extension cord reel or one specifically designed for lights. It’ll keep everything free of tangles and ready to unwrap next year.

Seasonal Storage for Wreaths

Much like with trees, wreaths benefit from having special containers. If you’re someone who likes to swap out your wreath with the season, you really only need one or two of these boxes to make a big impact. Simply change out your door’s décor when it’s time and place the spare inside the box. You can then easily slide it under a bed or inside a closet, or you could use our best storage tip of all to maximize space:
