You’ve eaten the last of the leftover trick-or-treat candy, thrown the rotting jack-o-lanterns in the trash, and removed the skeletons, tombstones, and witch’s cauldrons from your front yard. Yes, another Halloween has come and gone.
All Hallows’ Eve was a lot of fun. But, you now face the dilemma of where to store Halloween decorations while you break out your Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Hanukkah stuff. To avoid being haunted by your storage decisions when you unpack next fall, it’s important to properly store your Halloween décor.
The following are some helpful tips to consider:
- Designate a place: Keep all Halloween decorations together in one part of your basement, attic, garage, or storage unit. This way, you’ll know exactly where to look for allthe holiday’s stored items.
- Make sure everything is dry: Fall can be a wet time of year. Before packing away any Halloween decorations, make sure they are completely dry.
- Use plastic storage containers: This will ensure that decorations will stay dry, be safe from moths and other insects, and not get crushed.
- Cushion fragile items: When storing breakable decorations like glass or ceramics, be sure to wrap them in newspaper or bubble wrap, and don’t stack heavy items on top of them.
- Label it: Labeling the storage containers with what they contain can help you find exactly what you’re looking for. Many big box stores, like Target, sell plastic storage containers in seasonal colors—orange and black for Halloween, green and red for Christmas, etc. Using these will make it easier to see what holiday decorations they contain.
