Setting for the holidays is exciting. All the lights and ornaments and memories of holidays past. It's fun and it's magical.
And then there's the taking everything down. It's kinda like coming home from vacation and having to unpack and do laundry. Bringing up all the boxes and packing materials and trying to figure out what goes where. This is where organization is your best friend.
There are several ways to store wrapping paper. The space you have available to store it will determine what is best for you. See the slideshow below for ideas and where to purchase. Flat and folded paper can be stored in a simple file folder box.
Bulbs and Ornaments:
Look at your storage containers. Are they boxes handed down from years past? Is the tissue paper to wrap the bulbs in from 19 whatever? If so, it might be time to do a little bit of investing in even a few new storage containers. If you store ornaments outside, use plastic storage bins that can be sealed tight.
Unless lights come straight out of the package, they can be a handful to unwind. Thankfully, there are handy storage solutions that help solve this problem.
Recycle your old lights
While it's easy to want to just toss those old lights into the trash, it's not hard to recycle them! Most hardware stores are drop off sites for recycling those lights. To find a drop off location in your area, just click on the link below.
