Storing holiday decorations can be tricky, especially if you’re short on space.  Every year homeowners are faced with the challenge of fitting all of their holiday décor in a small storage area.  To solve this problem, here are 7 tricks for maximizing space when packing up all of these holiday items.


  1. Stack Up

    Plastic containers are an excellent option for storing holiday decorations because they are sturdier than cardboard boxes, they come in a variety of sizes, and they can easily be stacked on top of one another.  Make use of this nifty storage solution and save space in your closet or attic by stacking plastic containers.


  2. Use Hangers

    Believe it or not there are several holiday decorations that can be stored using hangers.  Wreaths, bows, garland, and even wrapping paper (stored in a garment bag) can be hung in closets or on clothing racks making more room on the floor for other bulkier decorations.


  3. Wrap Your Lights

    Instead of wasting space using boxes to hold your Christmas lights, try wrapping them around pieces of cardboard. The lights can then be stored on top of other boxes and will take up very little room.


  4. Use Vacuum Sealed Bags

    Vacuum sealed bags are a great way to maximize storage space and can be useful for a variety of holiday decorations.  Tree skirts, stockings, throws, pillows, tablecloths, napkins, and any other soft fabrics can easily be stored in vacuum sealed bags.


  5. Invest in a Tree Bag

    Not only are tree bags a safer and more durable option for storing your artificial tree, but the storage bag can save more space than a traditional tree box.  With a bag, you have the option to store your tree in a corner or even on top of other boxes. 


  6. Overhead Storage

    If you are lucky enough to have a spacious garage, you can store your holiday decorations in an overhead shelving unit.  Your decorations will be stored neatly out of the way without taking up much needed storage space in your closets or attic.


  7. Use a Shelving Unit

You can save a tremendous amount of space in your attic by utilizing a shelving unit.  This will provide a place for you to store boxes, lights, wrapping paper, and any other holiday items without stacking boxes all over the floor.
