With Christmas over, now comes the daunting task of putting all the décor away. Here are some great tips to help you tackle this chore with ease for years to come:

No. 1
Ornaments

Ornament storage boxes with layers of holding vessels is great to undress the tree quickly and without any ornament casualties. Try this one that has easy carry handles, a  zipper closure, and cardboard dividers.

No. 2
The tree

If you can’t seem to fit the tree back in the box it came from, try a Tree Bag for your artificial tree. Try a bag that has wheels and heavy duty handles to help you transport the tree to your storage unit, like this. Or you can use a tree storage bag that keeps the tree on wheels year round. Roll in and out of storage each year with no stress on your back, like this.

No. 3
lights

This is always a frustrating piece of décor, always tangled and messy. For simple storage, wrap lights around a piece of cardboard and store in Ziplock over sized freezer bags. This way you can label the bags as to if they are indoor/outdoor lights, or where you had them the previous year. If you are looking for an even savvier way to store lights, use a light spool. Light spools have great storage bags and lights easily wrap around without ever getting tangled.

No. 4
wrapping paper

There are some great new storage units for wrapping paper and gift bags. For closet storage, you can purchase these hanging gift bag organizers that easily host all of your gift bags. There are also great hanging gift wrap storage organizers to showcase your wrapping paper neatly in your closet. For those with limited closet space, there is also under-bed options that store gift wrap and bags with ease.

No. 5
holiday dishware

There are now great storage boxes at  Organize.com with windows to reveal which dishes or glassware are hiding beneath the lids. This makes any holiday dishware easy to find, and keeps them dust free over the seasons.
