All of my Christmas lovelies have been boxed up and stored until December! I threw away the pitiful old boxes I’ve been carting around since 2006 and purchased new Sterilite tubs for all my decor this year. I keep the Christmas decor in our utility room off the carport which isn’t temperature-controlled, so I wanted to protect it from the heat and humidity as much as possible. I wrap fragile things in my Christmas linens (dish towels, etc.) or keep them in their original boxes.
I put a post it note on the inside of the container and taped it down. I just listed the major contents of the box, in case I want to decorate in stages next year and not pull out all the boxes at once.
And of course, before I box up everything, I make sure to pull out anything I don’t want anymore and set it aside. I’m always adding to my Christmas decor with after-Christmas clearance sales, so getting rid of a few older or tacky things never hurts!
Visit my post on Organizing And Storing Christmas Gift Wrap for all the details on how I do that – here’s a sneak peek of my system:
Have you put your Christmas decor away for the year?

Wrapping fragile things in the Christmas linen – genius. Then it’s not taking up space with all of my other ones. Great tip!! Can’t believe that didn’t occur to me… *slaps forehead
Sharing helpful tips is just one great benefit of bloggy friends! I’ve gotten some good ones from you, too! 🙂

You are too good. I at least got the tree down the weekend following Christmas day, but I am still working on the lights outside. *Head in hands**They will be up all year*
Haha! I sent the man out to take down the outdoor lights. Otherwise mine would still be up, too! =)
