This weekend the holiday decorations are coming down for the year, and the best way to guarantee a happy me next holiday season is to use a few simple tricks to keep my Christmas storage stress and tangle-free. I’ve gathered some of the clever ideas that caught my eye on the Interwebs. Maybe they will help make a happier you in December 2013 too!
For tangle-free Christmas lights:
For storing fragile Christmas ornaments:
For disposing of Christmas trees:
For wrapping paper and supplies:
For preserving holiday candles:
Miscellaneous storage ideas:
Snap a picture with your phone to remember displays you want to recreate next year.
If a decoration is not beloved anymore, donate it to Goodwill instead of storing it (and hauling it up and down the stairs) another year.
If lights, ornaments, or decorations need to be replaced, shop now. Save the frustration of re-discovering the need next year, plus Christmas decor is on clearance right now.
