Between the giant inflatable pumpkin, the Thanksgiving knick-knacks, and tangled sets of white, blue, or red and green strings of lights it can be an impossible task keeping the holiday decorations organized in the garage. So how do you wave goodbye to the clutter without completely Marie Kondo-ing the holiday décor? Here are three tips for storing your celebratory items.
Stacks of clear plastic bins might seem like they are doing the job, but the reality is that the decorations inside are susceptible to dampness and mildew, not to mention they just take up floor space. Consider a custom cubby system that perfectly organizes and stores your valuables without adding to the clutter. Now don’t stop there, just because you have the cubby system doesn’t mean you shouldn’t organize within those cubbies. Color-coordinated baskets to hold each holiday’s items can make it easy to visualize where to find or store everything. If you want to keep everything monochrome, simply add labels to the outside of each cubby’s bin.
On the Wall
Storage doesn’t have to look like bulky cabinets if that doesn’t meet your needs. If you aren’t an avid decorator but have a few items that you’d like to not damage year-to-year, consider a wall system to hang them up! Lights can be coiled into a loop, with the ends secured by a zip-tie or tape (opt for something easy to remove like painter’s tape), and easily hung from a hook on the wall. Hooks are also a great solution for wreaths, stockings, and even costumes. For clothes, consider tucking things into a garment bag before hanging it on the wall.
