Unfortunately, the holiday season is coming to a close and with the new year approaching it’s time to start thinking about packing away those lights and decorations until next year. Packing up decorations isn’t always a top priority but there is nothing worse than getting them ready for next year only to find a tangled and broken mess. So, in order to save you time and a headache a year from now, we’ve put together our step-by-step list for packing holiday decorations.
Step 1: Get your supplies ready
- Boxes and bins are good for storing items
- ZIploc bags for all of the hooks
- Packing paper to wrap the ornaments
- Bubble wrap for extra protections
- Tape to keep the boxes closed
- Marker to label
Step 2: Sort your decorations
You can either sort by type, room or display
- Type (lights, outdoor, garland, etc.)
- Room (family room, kitchen, etc.)
- Display (christmas tree, mantle display, etc.)
Categorizing everything will only make your life easier next year!
Step 3: Make sure everything is secured in place
Now that everything is wrapped and organized, place them securely into the box or bin you will be keeping them in for the next 12 months. Make sure that the box is taped shut! We wouldn’t want anything to fall out if the box gets jostled.
Step 4: Label Everything
Finally, take the time to label each box and bin; your future self will thank you 🙂
