Holiday Storage

If it took more than ten minutes to find all your Christmas decor this year, you're in need of a holiday storage makeover! This year, instead of throwing everything back into the mismatched and different sized assortment of rubber tubs and cardboard boxes, why not make things easier for yourself and initiate a personalized holiday storage system. Here are two of my favorites:

This Red Holiday Storage Box from The Container Store measures 15"x20"x11 3/8", is an easy to assemble, reasonably priced foundation to start you off.  Customize your "system" with the optional inserts: white standard sized ornament tray, large and/or small ornament trays in red (each sold separately).  You'll need about about 8-10 of these boxes, some with tray inserts, some without.

Another nice Holiday Storage "system" is this one from FrontGate: This collection features soft fabric and fully adjustable interior compartments in an array of sizes to suite your needs.

Whichever storage system you choose, don't forget to protect your breakable ornaments with acid-free packing shred and label the front of each box so you know exactly what is in them.  Stack boxes together, preferably on designated shelves in your garage, basement or attic.

You'll be glad next year that you took the extra effort now and you can congratulate yourself on starting your New Years Resolution to "Get Organized" early!
 Happy 2010 and Happy Organizing!
