How to store your Christmas Decorations

Have you taken down your Christmas tree and decorations yet? 

I'm ashamed to say that our Christmas tree still has pride of place in our living room. I really admire my mother-in-law's diligence of taking down her Christmas tree and decorations every year on New Year's Day. Sadly, I don't know if this is a ritual I could commit to. Firstly because I'm not usually feeling my brightest on New Year's Day after a late night, and secondly because my brain can't cope with finding a home for all our Christmas decorations. 

This is only the second year that we've had a "proper Christmas tree" and collection of decorations that need to be packed away, so I'm going to cut myself some slack as I'm still finding my feet. Rather than shoving everything in a box and hiding it in the cupboard, this year I've vowed to be more organised and find a "home" for everything so it's not such a daunting task next year. Here are some of my favourite Christmas decoration storage ideas that I'm going to try out...

Baubles
These little devils will happily roll away in any direction if you let them. The glass ones are also pretty dangerous if they break with small children around. 

Egg cartons are a cheap and effective way of storing baubles so they don't roll around and rub together

You can use smaller egg cartons and store baubles by colour:



Zip lock bags are a great way of keeping different coloured baubles separated and organised. Large clear zip lock bags are also good for storing tinsel. 



If your baubles are too big to store in egg cartons, stash them in plastic cups, which are available in a variety of sizes. 


Wrapping tissue around really fragile ornaments will protect them by preventing them from moving around in their box. 

These metallic beads make lovely Christmas decorations, but get tangled easily and are hard to repair when they break. Storing them in plastic bottles will keep them untangled and easy to find


Plastic boxes are a great way of storing all your Christmas decorations as you can see exactly what's in each box. They're also pretty cheap to pick up these days, and are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. 



Christmas Tree
I love this idea of 'shrink wrapping' your tree with cling wrap. Not only does it protect the tree from dust and dirt, but it also dramatically reduces its size, giving you more options to store under a bed, etc. To release the tree, simply slice up the side of the plastic with sharp scissors. 


Wrapping paper
This padded wrapping paper case is the ultimate way to store your paper, ribbon, bows, etc. which could be used for birthdays, etc. all year round and not jut for Christmas. 


What's your top tip on storing your Christmas decorations? We'd love your thoughts, please comment below...

  7. My name, there is ข่าวฟุตบอลวันนี้ not even one point บาคาร่าขั้นต่ำ10บาทz where I feel that something bad has happened to me. I would say that the worst thing I felt was when I got home and looked at myself in the mirror and said 'Yes. Then looks good! 'But after a few days I felt that 'Never mind, it's just a scar ... It's just a leg.' '
    Badminton began as part of the rehabilitation process to help her walk again with prosthetics. But she began to show special skills One day, she caught the eye of the badminton player's defender, who saw her beat the mighty rivals in the organization's tournaments. He encouraged her to try with the Indian team, which eventually led to a call.
    In order to participate in the แจกเครดิตฟรี competition in Spain, this was some of Manasi's more severe injuries on the court, playing what she called badminton.

    However, she was ready to deal with the injuries on her one hand and on her left leg. No surgeon and no ambulance, take her to a large hospital I am very disappointed. I waste a lot of blood and I waste time, "she said.
    When the ambulance arrived two hours later, the hospital ambulance turned out to be a damaged van that was a long way from the promised "cutting-edge" vehicles. Traveling her 10-12km distance to the hospital, which she will eventually be treated to torture every hole, every hole only increases her pain.
    Just at 5:30 pm that evening, Manasi received UFA700 appropriate medical treatment - about nine hours after the accident, the doctor gave priority to the treatment of her legs. She stayed in the hospital for 45 days and underwent surgery every five to 10 days, but eventually decay came in and the medical team had to give up. There is no choice but to amputate her leg

    In December 2018, the Taliban announced they would meet US officials to try to find a "roadmap to peace". But the militants continued to refuse to hold official talks with the Afghan government, whom they dismissed as American "puppets".
    Following nine rounds of US-Taliban talks in Qatar, the two sides seemed close to an agreement. Washington's top negotiator เว็บบอลFUN88announced in September that the US would withdraw 5,400 troops from Afghanistan within 20 weeks as part of a deal agreed "in principle" with Taliban militants.
