How to Store Holiday Decorations

Harris Self Storage Has the Space to Store Your Decorations in the New River Valley

Do you know how to store holiday decorations in the New River Valley? The holidays are a magical time of year. No matter what you celebrate, the holidays generally include decorations for celebrating the season. Whether it’s your tree, your lights, or other decorations, there are better ways to store them. Harris Self Storage has some ideas in this month’s blog. If you don’t have room at home to store decorations, we have 5’ x 5’ storage units and larger ones.


Invest in Quality Storage Containers to Store Holiday Decorations

The first step in storing holiday decorations is to invest in the right storage containers. Opt for sturdy containers that are specifically for storing holiday items. Look for containers with secure lids that will protect your decorations from dust and moisture. If you’re concerned about moisture, store in one of our climate controlled storage units. Clear containers are also helpful so that you can easily see what’s inside.


Carefully Wrap and Protect Fragile Items

You should wrap fragile items such as ornaments, delicate figurines, and glass decorations for protection. Wrap each item individually in tissue paper or bubble wrap, and place them in a container with other fragile items. Make sure you mark the container “fragile,” and store it in a safe spot where it won’t suffer damage.


Put a Proper Label on Everything You Own

Labeling your storage containers is essential for easy access to your holiday decorations. Make sure to label each container with the contents inside and where it belongs. This will help you quickly locate the items you need when it’s time to decorate next year. You can even create a master list of all the items you have and which container they’re in.


Store Your Tree Properly  

If you have an artificial Christmas tree, it’s important to store it properly to protect it. That will help maximize its lifespan. Disassemble the tree and place each section in a sturdy storage bag or container. Make sure to label the bag with the tree’s size and section number. Store the bags upright in where they won’t break.
