The holidays wouldn't be the same without festive decorations and present wrapping. But storing these items for the rest of the year can take up a lot of space. Stay organized with these holiday storage hacks to make your life a little easier.
Pack fragile ornaments carefully to keep them from breaking. Plastic apple containers, egg crates, and beverage trays are ideal storage options.
Avoid the nightmare of unruly holiday lights next year. Wrap the lights around a hanger or a piece of cardboard before storing in a box or container.
Don't let rolls of wrapping paper get in the way. Store the rolls in a clear garment bag and hang in a closet.
Keep your storage bins free from bulky wreaths. Use a zip-tie to attach the wreath to a hanger. Drape a plastic garbage bag over the hanger and hang in a storage closet or on a rack.
Organize ribbon for easy access by stacking the rolls on a paper towel holder.
Not sure what to do with leftover candy canes? Grind them up for a tasty dessert topping you can enjoy any time of year.
