Wouldnâ€™t it be great to be able to have an organized way to store all of your decorations when this holiday season comes to a close? Â Having everything in its place is the perfect end to your holiday celebrations. Â Here are a few ideas to get those decorations stored in a way that will have you looking forward to the holidays for years to come.
Categorize Your Decorations
All decorations arenâ€™t the same. Â Keeping them separated based on how you use them will make them easier to find the next time you need them. Â A few questions to consider when categorizing: Â Where do I use these decorations? Â What size are they? Â When do I use them? Â While you are separating your items, it is a good time to consider parting ways with those decorations you no longer display.
Find Appropriate Storage Bins
Once you know the different types of decorations you have, determine the size and type of boxes you need to effectively store them. Â You may be best served by plastic storage crates, or perhaps new sturdy cardboard boxes will suffice. Â If you find out you need more space for your boxes, K&N can assist you with storage solutions, such as new cabinets, that will increase your available space with a touch of style.
Label Those Bins
Rather than trying to remember what is in every box until next winter, make it easy on yourself. Â Label the boxes so it is easy to see what is in each one. Â If you have the time, a written description of the items in each container will make next yearâ€™s decorating process even more efficient and enjoyable. Â This list could be stored in a convenient spot such as a file cabinet.
Store the Decorations and Relax
Once you have your plan in place, all that remains to do is putting the decorations in their proper place. Â Youâ€™ll just need to untangle Â the lights, dismantle the tree and a few other details and you will be ready for the next season. Â If you have any dishes or glasses in your decoration collection, an Amana dishwasher, which is available at K&N, will get them crystal clean, so they will be ready to go as soon as you take them out of the box next year.
Donâ€™t let worrying about what youâ€™re going to do with the decorations weigh on your mind this holiday season. Â Be prepared with a plan to put them away in a systematic fashion. Â Knowing where the decorations are going when you are done with them, will help you enjoy them and the holidays even more.
