I once had a client who kept her artificial Christmas tree in a ratty cardboard box. She said to me, “Every year I take it out of the box and hope it (the box) survives another year. I just don’t know how else to store it.”
I also had a client who stored her tree ornaments between towels in a laundry basket.
To both of them, I recommended holiday storage solutions.
Why use holiday storage?
• It protects your holiday decorations from dirt/bugs/small creatures
• It holds the shape of holiday items such as trees and wreaths
• It helps to organize decorative items
Now is the perfect time to purchase holiday storage–before the tree and all of its trimmings get put away. Here are a few options at different price points that can assist in making next year’s holidays less stressful and more joyous.
From inexpensive to high-end:
Christmas Tree Shop (or any similar discount store)
I saw an ornament organizer for less than $5 last time I was there.
Wreath Storage Bag $14.98
Tree Duffel $69.95
The Cover Store
Rolling Tree Storage Bag (up to 15′) $149.99
If anyone knows of menorah storage solutions, I’d be interested in seeing those…
