Happy New Year! It’s still December, Sweet Friends, and years ago I took all the holiday decorations down on January 1st. This year, I’ve decided to keep them up a little bit longer. Honestly, I just want to be outside walking the pups. The weather here in Northern California has been gorgeous.
And, truthfully, I’m still working on Holiday DIY’s. December 31st came way too soon for me.
When do you put all of your holiday decorations away? How do you transition out of Christmas? Leave me a comment and let me know. If you don’t have a plan, I’d love to hear that too.
Just because it’s almost January doesn’t mean you have to put all the holiday decorations away, but if you decide you want to, that’s a-ok. In fact, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite organizing and storage options for your decor.
When January comes, all you hear about is “Organization!” Out with the old and in with the new! In today’s post, I’m going to show you some of my favorite organizing options for Christmas Decor. I hope these ideas will help you get a little more organized for the holiday season.
Wreath Storage Options:
I use two types of wreath storage systems; the bags and the plastic bins. My preference is the clear ones so you can see what’s inside. Honestly, I use both not just because I have ALOT of wreaths. For small holiday’s like Valentine’s Day and/or St. Patrick’s Day, where there is usually minimal decorating, I usually stick the wreath and other smaller decor items into the bag/bin. So, although it’s considered a Wreath Storage Option, there’s usually room for garlands and or other tidbits. Here are two of my favorite options.
Holiday Gift Wrap Storage Options:
In my home, I designate a hutch that holds all of my gift wrap, ribbon, tissue, notecards, etc. It’s a nice place to go and wrap gifts all year long. I plan to share my “Hutch turned Gift Wrap Station” with you later in January. For gift wrap items that don’t fit in the hutch or that are more seasonal, I usually go with under the bed storage or closet storage. Here are three of my favorite options.
Christmas Tree Storage Options:
For my large trees I find the bags with wheels to work well. For small table top trees, a bin is sufficient. Here are some of my favorites options.
Ornament storage is something I really struggle with. I think it’s because I hate putting Christmas away as it’s my favorite time of the year. Individual wrapping and storing each ornament is a tedious task. For breakable ornaments, it’s quite important. When considering Ornament Storage, I would think about how many ornaments you have to store. Gathering like items together creates an easier and more manageable storage system. I prefer different size ornament storage boxes for that reason. Here are a few of my favorite options.
Garland/ Lights Storage
There are many options for storing garland and lights. Here are a few of my favorite options.
Greeting Card Storage:
I like to keep greeting cards on hand in case a birthday or a sympathy card is needed. Card storage is also important for the gift tags and left over Christmas cards that were not used. Here are a few of my favorite options.
Starting in January, I’ll be showing off how I organize my home. I hope you are inspired to get organized with me.
