Christmas decorations! Everything from wreathes, strings of colorful lights, tinsel, and ornaments comes busting out during the month of December. However, you find yourself in a bit of a dilemma. You’ve been building your collection of Christmas decorations for so long that you’re beginning to run out of room for all the new decorations you want to show off.
Luckily, your storage unit over at STORBOX has the extra space to accommodate your love for the holiday season. Here are three key ways to keep your Christmas decorations safe and organized:
- Use cord wraps for lights. Almost every year you find yourself meticulously trying to untangle your old strings of lights, or buying new ones because they’ve become so damaged. This is usually due to careless Christmas-light management. Once the lights are off, they’re tossed in a box and forgotten for the next 12 months. To keep your light strings from being a knotted mess, coil them carefully and use cord wraps to keep them from tangling up.
- Carefully pack glass ornaments. When packing away your precious glass ornaments, you should definitely be wrapping them in newspaper, tissue paper, or bubble wrap to keep them from being destroyed. It’s heartbreaking to open a box of Christmas decorations to find one shattered at the bottom.
- Label your containers. There’s a lot of ground to cover when decorating your home for the holiday season, almost to the point where it can be overwhelming. And having all your decorations packed into one or two cluttered containers just takes away too much time. Separating your items by “tree decorations,” “home décor,” and “outdoor decorations” will save you unneeded frustration.
Here at STORBOX we know that having your home light up for the holidays is important to you, and keeping your Christmas decorations safe and secure is a part of all that. Our facility is easily accessible and available to you, for a pick-up or drop-off of your decorations at your discretion.
