4 Tips for Storing Items for the Holidays
Get rid of it! First, ask yourself if you really need some of these items that you do not use. If you can cut down the amount of things that require storing, your job will be much easier. Donate, sell or throw away anything that you haven’t used in a year’s time.
Storage Bins! Plastic storage bins with lids is a great way to store things like off-season clothes, sentimental photos and other items that you do not use on a regular basis. The best thing about these containers is that you can purchase them in various sizes to fit any space. Under the bed, on a shelf in the closet or even the attic are just a few suggestions. They will also keep any unwanted pests, like mice, out of your things.
Baskets! Decorative baskets are wonderful to have around the home for tossing in random clutter before your guests arrive. Mail, magazines or papers look much better in a pretty basket than on your coffee table. Use these around the home to keep clutter to a minimum.
Get Creative! You can find a thousand different and unique ideas for storing things around your home. One of our favorites is using hanging, sleeved shoe organizers in all closets to store gloves, scarves, belts, ties and other accessories that you do not have room for in your drawers.
