HOLIDAY DECORATING TRICKS
our organizer’s share their holiday decorating tricks
Use a wicker basket, with a handle, to carry and hold unwrapped ornaments, while you place them on the tree.
Setup 4 people, on 4 ladders, around your tree, and pass the string of lights from 1 person to the next until the entire tree is wrapped.
Keep your outdoor lights on an automatic timer so you don’t have to worry about turning them on and off.
CHOSE MEDIUM-SIZED STORAGE BINS
Contain holiday decor in medium-sized, manageable bins that are easy for 1 person to maneuver.
WHERE TO STORE DECORATIONS?
Keep holiday decorations together in a storage space that is accessible, but not front and center, since you will only be accessing them yearly
KEEP ALL HOLIDAY THINGS TOGETHER
We recommend storing all holiday items together, including things that are often kept out all year, like holiday cookie cutters, dish rags, and mugs.
PHOTOGRAPH YOUR DECORATING
If you like the way your decoration look, take photographs to reference next year.
SKIP WRAPPING ORNAMENTS
Since your fragile ornaments only travel from your living room to their storage spot, they likely don’t need the protective paper most of us wrap our ornaments in.
STORING OVERSIZED DECORATIONS
Store oversized decorations, like wreaths, in large, contractor-sized trash bags.
