How to: organise your decorations

How to: organise your decorations


When you haul out your decorations, do you dread untangling wires and finding ornaments that are cracked or broken? Take control while packing away at the end of this year…

  • Don’t keep what you don’t use. Don’t be overly sentimental – throw away any decorations you didn’t use this year.
  • Opt for more, smaller storage bins as opposed to fewer, larger ones that allow for tangling and clutter.
  • Store unused wrapping paper in medium-sized plastic bins.
  • Place small ornaments in empty egg cartons. For larger ornaments, glue plastic cups to pieces of cardboard and place one ornament in each cup.
  • When storing the tree, try to store it upright to avoid matting down the branches.
