Holiday Ornament Storage Boxes. My mother kept all of her original ornament packages for storage from year after year. While those packages held all of her ornaments—they were not always very durable and the occasional ornament broke during the “off season”. I love sturdy, ornament storage boxes with segmented compartments, like the Snap and Stack Seasonal Ornament Boxes.
Christmas Tree Light Storage. Oh, the joy of tangled holiday lights. For years, I have rolled our lights around rolled newspapers or recycled paper towel rolls—but, I finally found something a little better.
Christmas Wreath Storage. I have a large, handmade wreath that was a gift from my parents last year that I want to keep safe and well preserved. While other wreath storage bags cover the wreath, they do not do a lot to prevent crushing or breaking the adorning ornaments and bows. I like this Direct Suspend Wreath Storage Bag from Santa Bags.
For my smaller wreaths, I prefer the Homz Holiday Wreath Storage Box.
These wreath boxes hold up to a 24 inch wreath--and the units are sold as 3-packs. Itt is a sturdy, smaller wreath storage idea--and it's stack-able and keeps from wreaths from being crushed.
Holiday Gift Wrap Storage. Yes, I am one of those moms that buys random gift bags in discount stores and saves holiday gift bags from parties and gatherings to reuse. I have even been known to reuse tissue paper—for years. I store wrapping paper, bags and bows right along with my Christmas decorations.
For gift bags, I often simply use a larger shopping or gift bag that hold lots of smaller bags and I use the Jokari Gift Bag Organizer during the holiday-wrapping-season to keep a handy supply of tissue paper safely organized—and to keep the gift bags, tags, etc., visible and easy to grab.
For rolled wrapping paper, name tags, ribbon, bows and other gift wrap supplies, I like the Honey Can Do Wrapping Paper Storage Container.
Hope these ideas help get you motivated to get your New Year off to a more organized start!
