Holiday Decoration Storage Tips

No more room in your attic for any more sets of lights and blow-up Santas? Leave all your holiday decorations in a nearby storage unit for safekeeping and make room in your home storage spaces. You use those decorations only once a year, so why let them take over your space the rest of the year? Street Smart Storage has two self storage locations—in Vass NC and Wilmington NC—that offer quality service and storage. Choose from a selection of temperature-controlled and drive-up storage units for your holiday decoration storage. Follow these packing tips!

Holiday Decoration Storage 101

Artificial Trees and Fragile Ornaments

Trees and ornaments are two items that especially susceptible to breakage in storage. When items are being moved around, they can crash around in their box. To prevent that from happening, pack bubble wrap or some other type of padding in the box to fill up empty space and keep the items from moving inside the box. For your glass ornaments, it is best to wrap them each individually.

Wrapping Paper, Gift Bags, and Other Supplies

If you store all your wrapping supplies one place, you will have an organized advantage when you go to wrap presents next year. You can store it close to you in your home storage, such as under your bed or in your closet, or you could keep it in self storage. But if you choose to put wrapping supplies in storage, pack them in a moisture-proof bin.
