Perhaps it’s a bit early to start thinking about putting away all those decorations that you’ve probably just put up for Christmas. But with a little preparation you can save yourself a lot of extra work for when it comes to putting them all away in the New Year.
To help you get it done – quickly and easily, we’ve put together a few clever storage solutions and some organisational tips so you can detangle, declutter and protect your holiday decorations next year.
Organising your decorations
When it comes to packing your holiday decorations into boxes – try to sort your decorations into categories. This could be by indoor, outdoor, lights, ornaments and tinsel – so that when you bring them all out again in a years’ time you can decorate an area at a time without leaving a mess along the way.
Make room in the loft
Are you scared of your loft space? The loft is one of those places that often becomes a dumping ground for anything that doesn’t fit anywhere else in your home. But maybe this year, instead of just shoving all your Christmas decorations into the loft, why not give your loft a makeover so that its not a space you’re scared to venture into every year. It may be that all it needs are some clever storage to organise all of your ‘stuff’.
Under the stairs storage never fails
Your under the stairs space is one that can be very effective – especially for those items that you want to keep hidden for long periods of time. All you have to do is work to your advantage and maximise your storage potential, then you’ll have enough room for all your Christmas decorations, keeping the rest of your home – clutter free.
So there you have it folks – start getting your storage and organising done early and you won’t have to worry about it in the New Year.
