When you’re something like me, when it’s time to place away the vacation decor, I’m so able to put it away that every part tends to discover a haphazard place in a field within the basement. I don’t at all times bear in mind what I put the place after which it seems like a disorganized mess left for me the following yr. Final yr I took a while to attenuate our vacation decorations and this yr I went a bit additional with the group. I’ve a reasonably good system and thought you would possibly get pleasure from seeing what I’ve give you. Sources are linked up beneath.
Vacation decorations ought to observe acquainted organizational methods. This makes it simpler to maintain observe of those seldom used objects and makes it simpler to find and discover what we want once we want it.

SEPARATE AND GROUP BY CATEGORY – Kind like with like – gentle objects like stockings and the tree skirt and go collectively in a bin. Garland and different greenery might be saved collectively.
I exploit these white storage totes within the basement for vacation decor and storage of different objects as properly.
