It’s almost Christmas. If you haven’t already begun, soon you’ll be sprucing up the house, working on your gift giving list, planning a menu, writing out invitations to your party, and getting decorations out of storage to really welcome in the season. With that in mind, we have outlined a few tips that will help guide you in the right direction for a more organized and relaxed Christmas season and a Happy New Year. Enjoy!
Recycle Gift Wrap and Tissue Paper
After the gifts are open you usually throw away a ton of gift wrap and tissue paper. Instead of throwing it away, take the used paper and run it through a paper shredder! You can use the strips of paper as packing cushion when you put all of your decorations and breakable gifts in storage.
You are absolutely in love with the way you hung your decorations this year and you want to remember exactly how you did it for the next year. So you don’t forget, label all of your lights, strings of garland and any other decorations with masking tape. Write on the masking tape exactly where you hung them and you’ll be ready to go for next year!
Organizing your Gifts
You probably got lots of beautiful clothes for Christmas and you want to keep them all. The problem is, you don’t have enough room in your closet. For every new item you received, get rid of one. That way you will have enough room to store all of your beautiful new things.
Organizing your Décor
You probably have certain things you want to pull out first next year. What you need is an “Open First” box. Put this box away last and it will be right up front for you to pull out first next year.
Label each box with a list of contents it contains, then you won’t have to search every box for a particular item you are looking for. Also, organize your boxes by season by using color-coded lids for each holiday. Red for Christmas, orange for Halloween, green for St. Patrick’s Day, and so on.
Now that you have all of our decorations and Christmas gifts organized, you need a place to store everything. At Garage Décor and More, we have a number of solutions that will fit your needs.
To store your holiday decorations, we could install overhead storage racks in your garage. Our overhead storage racks are a great way to add storage space that is out of the way of your daily activities. We also have SlatWall systems where you can hang items that can’t be put in a box.
At Garage Décor and More, we provide our customers with the best products and services. Whether you need a new closet for your new clothes or a storage system for all of your decorations, we have what you need. Your new closet and storage system will last you for many years to come.
