Just as quickly as Christmas came, it’s almost time for it to leave again. Don’t you wish there was an easier way to store your decorations, without dealing with the headache of tangled, broken lights, squished Christmas trees and wreaths, and broken ornaments? Below are a few tips that will take the hassle out of decorating for next year’s holiday season, making the season just a little brighter.

I had a stretch of time in my life when I would be the one who would put the Christmas lights on the house. In all, it took about four hours to set my parents’ electricity bill up to be double come January. Three and half hours were spent untangling the lights, and the other 30 minutes were used to actually hang the lights. Eliminate the stress of pulling out a wad of Christmas lights with the Christmas mini light storage wheel. This storage wheel holds up to 200 mini lights and up to 150 icicle lights. Convenient not only for Christmas lights, this storage wheel also makes quick work of storing extension cords, decorative beads, and garlands.

One of the best parts about Christmas is gathering the family ‘round the Christmas tree, decorating it together, and enjoying the toils of your labor. One of the more frustrating parts of Christmas is dealing with that box your tree or wreath came in, and watching it deteriorate little by little until it’s finally held together with duct tape. Plus, you can never get your Christmas tree back in the box like the factory did, so that always leaves your tree unevenly crammed into the box, resulting in broken and squished branches. Ditch the box and invest in Christmas tree and wreath storage bags. Made with sturdy, durable canvas, these storage bags will protect your decorations from the elements, and provide easy transportation thanks to the handles. Our wreath bags start at 28 inches in diameter and go all the way up to 60 inches in diameter, while our Christmas tree storage bags will hold trees up to nine feet tall. We even have a few on wheels, so all you have to do is pull the bag over your tree and wheel it out.

Ornament and Other Storage

Tired of dealing with broken ornament after broken ornament year after year? Using an ornament keeper will keep all your ornaments organized and undamaged until the next holiday season, and it even has a little extra room for some of your other decorations. An ornament keeper like this one will hold up to 72, 4-inch ornaments.  If you’re squared away on storing your tree, wreath, and ornaments and just need some extra storage for that village scene on your mantle, then look into a rolling holiday storage bag. Perfect for extra garland, power cords, or anything else you can think of, this bag sits on two rear wheels and makes organizing your Christmas that much easier.
