Lights and garlands can get tangled if bunched up. Inexpensive rollers or storage bags that include rollers are great storage solutions. You can make a roller with cardboard, paper rolls, or plastic pieces and save money on home organizers. Handmade rollers are practical yet convenient and cheap ideas. Twist ties help keep strands together. Just make sure all lights work before storing. Check outside lights before you pack them too.

2. Christmas tree storage ideas

Original boxes are perfect storage solutions for Christmas trees. Reuse and recycle bins keeping them in dry places. Tape, plastic wrap, a container, or a bag add a protective layer to the tree and make storing easier. Some containers and boxes are big enough to include disassembled a Christmas tree and decorations. It is a good idea to keep a Christmas tree and decorations on the same floor where you set the holiday tree, especially if storage boxes are heavy. You can get a Christmas decorations unit and unload it without lugging it up a flight of stairs or carrying it from an attic or garage next year.

Use the original packaging, unless it is broken, for storing Christmas decorations and tree ornaments. Rigid boxes or containers are the best for storing wreaths and ornaments. You can use plastic wrap and hooks for hanging large Christmas decorations for storage. Wood Christmas decorations need a dry storage place. Winter candles need to stay in a cool place.

4. Organizing tips

If you label all containers and boxes, it saves you time next year. You can use hooks to hang large and awkward Christmas decorations and store yard decorations, like lawn inflatable, separately. Handle Christmas decorations with care, and put them away right after the winter holidays.
