Now that the festive season is over and things are back to how they were. People are back at their jobs and are back with the daily routine it used to be before the holiday season. Now comes the time when you have to remove the festival decorations and store them properly so that they can be used later during any event party or just the next holiday season. Storing the decoration properly is an important task to do that they do not get ruined and you can use them whenever needed.
If you need to know how to store your decorations properly you can look at the list below to know several ideas and steps you can apply while storing the stuff.
Organize and categorize everything
The first and foremost thing do to is to make sure you divide the holiday decoration into categories such as things you would need and things that you need to throw out. This will help make things easier for you to organize as throwing some things will reduce the amount of stuff needed to be stored. Then you can categorize the stuff in some more categories on the basis of the rooms they were used or the basis of the material they are made of and you can then store them accordingly.
Have enough and proper space to store things
When you are storing the decorations you need to keep in mind that that you have enough space to store everything properly without ruining or damaging them. If you do not have much space required then you can look for some DIY hacks and see what you can do with the space available to you. You can make partitions and can even try and organize things properly without having much space. You can wrap lights on cardboard so that they do not tangle and mix with each other and this can save some space for other stuff. You can use other stuff to create partitions and store stuff properly.
Have plain covers to cover the decorations
When you store the decoration they are bound to get dirty and accumulate some dust and dirt on them. This makes them look bad and can damage them. Instead, you can get yourself some plain covers that can be used to cover some important and big decorations such as a wreath or some garlands so that they stay clean and free from dust particles. These covers help you to even separate and make things easier to store and organize. You can easily see what is kept in the covers and thus this helps you to know where and what stuff you store.
Separate and store the extra unused stuff properly for further use
There are times when you have some extra decoration or some wrapping papers that are all good and can be used some other time. Instead of throwing these things out, you can store them properly and then you can use them some other time. For instance, you can create a wrapping station that contains all the important stuff needed to wrap a gift properly and nicely. You can store this wrapping station properly and can use it further whenever you will need it. You can also get the cards and the photos you get this holiday season and get them laminated or get them framed so that you can keep them for a long time without ruining or damaging them. This way you get to store stuff and even you them when you need them without looking much here and there.
Holidays are very special as you get to spend some time with your friends and family and you get to decorate your house the way you want to. There is nothing as such extra decorations or an overly decorated place. You can decorate the place as much as you wish to and get to create a magical vibe to the place. Then after enjoying the festivals you can easily and slowly when you get time, remove the decoration and store them properly and in a proper place. This will help in storing them and making sure they are not ruined and nor are they destroyed.
