Organizing and Taking Down Holiday Decor

What goes up must come down! 

The holiday season is a time for celebration and joy, but it can also be a time for clutter and disorganization. As the holidays come to an end, it’s important to properly take down and organize your holiday decor to ensure that you’re ready for the next season. 

Here are a few tips for organizing and taking down your holiday decor:

Start Early 

Don’t wait until the last minute to take down your holiday decor. Starting early will give you plenty of time to properly take down and organize your decorations, and will help prevent feeling overwhelmed.

Take Inventory

 Before you start taking down your holiday decor, take an inventory of all your decorations. This will help you keep track of what you have and what needs to be stored.

Sort and Clean

As you take down your decorations, sort them into different piles, such as “keep”, “donate” or “throw-away”. Clean any items that need cleaning and discard any that are broken or damaged.

Use Storage Solutions

Proper storage is key to keeping your holiday decor organized. Use clear plastic storage containers to separate and protect your decorations. Use labels to identify the contents of each container. Storing ornaments is important for next year’s assembly.  Be sure to invest in ornament boxes that stack sturdy.

Lights on the tree can be stored on an electric roll. They store tight and wind up and out with ease. Wreaths store best in wreath bags. Not only does it protect your wreath but keeps it dust free over the years.

Create a Designated Space

 Create a designated space in your home to store your holiday decor. This will help you keep everything together and make it easy to find what you need when the next holiday season rolls around.

Be Mindful of the Environment

 Try to avoid single-use packaging and instead use reusable containers and bags. Most counties have tree pick-up services. Monmouth county has started last year dumping trees into the oceans and beaches to help stop erosion.  You can call or go online for your town schedule.
