Now that the holidays have come and gone, it's time to think about how to store your decorations and the memories of a great holiday season. Sterilite's line of holiday storage items will help to protect and preserve your trimmings for years to come. Here are a few holiday storage tips to help you create an organized system.
Wrapping it up
A great start for the holiday pack-up is to create a holiday toolkit and wrap station for next year. After the last minute gift-wrapping, everything you need for next year is already out. Now is the perfect time to create the solution that will have you thanking yourself next year. First, there is the 40 Inch Wrap Box
for all of the leftover wrapping paper that fits both 30-inch and 40-inch paper. The tall wrap box will fit nicely in a closet or in the basement without taking up much floor space. The Stack & Carry 3 Layer Handle Box & Tray
is ideal for keeping the scissors, tape, ribbon, and bows in one spot ready to be used next year.
Creating an ornament toolkit
Sterilite's Adjustable Ornament Box
has divided compartments for storing those uniquely shaped ornaments, like the angels, Santa figures or your child's popsicle stick reindeer. The 4-inch wide compartments can be made long or short to accommodate different size ornaments that you might have. This is also a great spot to store your extra decorating supplies such as ornament hooks and spare Christmas light bulbs. This ornament kit along with the wrapping station will make holiday setup and gift-wrapping a breeze next year.
Storing those ornaments
Once your supplies are tidied up, look to the 48 Quart Hinged Lid Ornament Storage Box
for storing those delicate Christmas bulbs. This box is large enough to store all your favorite ornaments from the tree in one convenient spot. Up to 45 3-inch bulbs can be stored in these compartments and the clear base allows you to identify which ornaments are stored inside. The sturdy inserts easily fit together dividing the sections.
Packing up the tree
Now that all those small decorations have a home, it's time to take care of that tree. The 50 Gallon Modular Clear Stacker Box
is sized to accommodate a standard 7½ foot tree. Many people use the original box the tree came in, but it can be a hassle to fit the tree back in. If you are storing the tree in the damp basement or attic, then the stacker box will keep your tree preserved and is long and wide enough to fit the tree in without the struggle. Sturdy latches will keep the lid on tight to keep the tree in place.
With these tips, we hope you are able to preserve not only your decorations, but also the memory of a holiday season spent with loved ones. With the holidays packed up and organized, you can look forward to a great 2017! Happy New Year!
