Six Things to Consider When Managing Your Holiday Decorations

The holiday season is a time of joy and festivity, but it can also be a time of stress and chaos, especially when it comes to managing your holiday decorations. Over the years, these items tend to accumulate, and finding the right decorations and keeping them in good condition can become a daunting task. To help you simplify this process and make your holiday decorating experience more enjoyable, here are some essential tips.

Sort and Declutter:

Before you decorate, set aside time to sort through your holiday decorations. Start by emptying all your boxes and bins and categorize items by type (e.g., ornaments, lights, wreaths, stockings). As you sort, be considered in your decluttering process. If an item is broken, faded, or no longer fits your style, consider donating or discarding it. This will free up space and make it easier to find what you need.

Prioritize Sentimental Items:

While it’s important to declutter, don’t forget the sentimental value of certain decorations. Family heirlooms, handmade ornaments, and gifts from loved ones should be prioritized. However, this doesn’t mean you have to display them all at once. Consider showcasing a few cherished items each year to keep the sentiment alive.

Label Everything:

To save time and reduce frustration when searching for specific decorations, label your storage containers. Use clear plastic bins and affix labels indicating their contents. This way, you can easily locate items and prevent the need to rummage through multiple boxes to find what you need.

Rotate Your Decor:

When you put out holiday decorations, store your everyday decorations in your holiday totes so your space isn’t overcrowded with too much decor. Your home will look beautiful but you won’t feel cluttered.

Invest in Quality Storage Solutions:

Protect your holiday decorations by investing in quality storage solutions. Acid-free tissue paper, bubble wrap, and plastic ornament dividers can help preserve delicate items. Store lights on spools to prevent tangling and breakage. Consider buying a sturdy artificial tree and or wreath storage bag to keep your items in top condition.

Regular Maintenance:

After the holiday season, take some time to inspect your decorations. Repair or replace any damaged items, and clean your ornaments and decor to ensure they’re ready for the next year.

By following these tips, you can make the holiday season more enjoyable and less stressful. Take the time to declutter and organize your decorations now, and you’ll thank yourself when it’s time to decorate for the next holiday season.

If this all seems like too much to take on during a busy season, let Imagine do it all for you and imagine the joy you will feel all season long!
