Holiday Hoarder or Well Prepared – How to Organize Your Christmas Decorations

I can’t help but get excited for the holidays every time I enter this room. When I moved into my home 4 and a half years ago I was determined to organize my Christmas decorations. At the time, I only had a few boxes of ornaments, but I knew that I wanted to be able to see what I had at a glance. I also had a few items that I collect, or needed to store that has also found a place in this room. This is what the room looks like now. I purchased the shelving – three separate units and clear containers from Costco. Some of the earlier clear bins I purchased fits three to the row. The newer ones can only fit two. If you decide to go this route – measure your shelf space and bins so you can get the most storage bang for your buck. Over the years I have amassed quite a collection. Mostly red ornaments. Last year I bought a label maker, to identify containers that held multiple items. I have black containers  in the garage, also from Costco but since they are not clear, I had to use the Label maker again. I store ribbon, tree picks and lights in these containers. There is a wall of shelving – but it doesn’t have all Christmas stuff. Getting organized helps me during setup and take down. Do you have tips or tricks to keeping your Christmas decorations...
