Top 7 Organization Tips for Your Holiday Gear & Decorations

It’s over – it’s done! Well, almost – the most wonderful time of the year is about to come to a close. As we say goodbye to festivities and adjust back to normal, we also have to start breaking down our holiday decorations and put them away until next year.

If you don’t yet have a preferred organizational method for these seasonal items, then it’s a great time to implement one. You’ll be setting yourself up for success when November comes around again, knowing where everything is and having peace of mind that each item is stored properly.

Here are our Top 7 organizational tips for your holiday gear and decorations for almost every room in your home – tis’ the season to be organized!

Holiday presents neatly organized and wrapped

Tip #1: Use clear plastic bins to store items like lights, ornaments, garlands and wreaths in a temperature-controlled space.

Tip #2: Create a wrapping station in your home office or craft room. A pull-down table mounted to the wall installed adjacent to a window bench is great for concealed storage and easy use.

Tip #3: Store your reusable tree on the ground floor in your garage. We don’t recommend your attic or basement because it can put a strain on the body to carry something so heavy up or down a flight of stairs.

Tip #4: Invest in a tablecloth and placemat organizer for your kitchen pantry. This storage solution will keep these items wrinkle free and safe.

Tip #5: Keep holiday themed sweaters and other novelty clothing items on the top shelf of your closet in bins or baskets. Once summer ends and the holidays start, move them down to a lower shelf and your summer items up top.

Tip #6: Make your mudroom winter gear friendly with storage for boots and hanging space for coats and scarves, as well as drawers for gloves and hats.

Tip #7: Allocate an entire day at the start of the season for unpacking and setting up, and another at the end of the season for dismantling and packing away. Use the same storage receptacles each time to maintain consistency.
