At Affordable Family Storage in Topeka, Kansas, we know that storing Christmas decorations can be a challenge. While some decorations are big and bulky, others are small and fragile, making it difficult to find an effective solution. Luckily, with the help of a couple, simple tricks, you can make the job a little easier. To help you out, we have outlined some storage solutions for the most common Christmas decorations.
Although nothing beats the joy of getting a live Christmas tree, artificial trees offer a wealth of benefits. They are hypoallergenic, inexpensive, and can be used year after year. Unfortunately, artificial trees can be difficult to store. Many people choose to leave their Christmas tree in its original box, but this leaves it susceptible to humidity, flooding, bugs, and other problems. At Affordable Family Storage, we recommend taking your tree down in parts and storing them away in separate plastic bins, which will protect the tree better than a cardboard box. You can also label your bins so you can easily put together your tree next holiday season.
Wreaths may be beautiful and festive during the holiday season, but they are certainly difficult to store the rest of the year. Instead of tossing your wreath in with the rest of your decorations, find a convenient place in your storage area to hang it up. If you are using a storage unit at Affordable Family Storage, consider hanging it on a removable Command hook. To protect the wreath from potential damage, wrap it in plastic.
In storage, lights can get tangled and knotted, creating a headache next holiday season. Luckily, taking the time to store them away properly can save you some hassle. This year, consider purchasing an inexpensive Christmas light roller. If you are trying to save money, simply wrap your lights around a piece of cardboard or an old wrapping paper roll. Afterwards, store the lights in a labeled box so you can easily find them next year.
Every year, your Christmas decoration collection seems to grow. Before you know it, it is taking up too much room in your home storage area. If you need a little extra room, rent a storage unit at Affordable Family Storage in Topeka. Our 5 x 5 and 5 x 10 units are cost-effective and provide just enough space for you to store away those overflowing decorations.
