5 Quick Storage Tips for Christmas Décor
1: As you take down decorations and pack them away, donate the ones you don’t use anymore.
2: Store artificial trees upright, if possible, to avoid having to disassemble or undecorate them.
3: When you buy ornaments, save the original packaging for storage.
4: Store small decorations in clearly labeled rubber or plastic totes.
5: Save time next season by noting which decorations you used where — better yet, take pictures.
