Christmas Take Down and Storage
The holiday season has come and gone, and if you turn your home into a winter wonderland, it is important you know the secrets of decoration storage. Keep everything safe during the off season, and ready to go next Christmas. Here are 4 tips for a successful holiday take down.
1. Use Clear Storage Bins
Instead of taking the time to label everything, use clear storage bins. This makes it easy to identify your items quickly. We suggest using stackable ones for optimal use of space. Also, if you want to store your ornaments safely, you can either buy dividers, or create your own with cardboard.
2. Make or Buy a Storage Reel
A storage reel is a must have for indoor and outdoor Christmas lights. It keeps them protected and organized. There will not be any broken or tangled lights this year, or next!
3. Wrap Your Christmas Tree
Protect your indoor Christmas tree by wrapping it up. No, not with wrapping paper, but with unused blankets, garbage bags, or drop cloths. Separate your tree and put each piece in the wrapping of your choice. This will keep your tree from collecting dust, drying out, or getting dirty.
4. Your Secret Weapon: The Platform Lifter
Why do we call this your secret weapon? Because now that you have your decorations organized, you have a place to store them. They will be out of the way on your garage ceiling. The Platform Lifter is motorized, so once you load your newly organized decorations, all you have to do is press a button. Your items will raise to the ceiling, and your décor will be protected.
We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas, and that these tips and tricks will help you this season and next.
