Now that the holiday has passed, it’s time to decide when to take Christmas lights down, how to best take down your Christmas tree and how to pack up all the other holiday decorations so they’re protected and easy to use again next year. Here are a few tips to make the process easy.

If you put out a big light display, you might be asking yourself, “How long can I get away with leaving this up?” People have differing opinions on when to take down Christmas lights—some say New Year’s Day, others say by the end of January—but one thing everyone can agree on is what a tangled mess those lights can be. That’s why we recommend the Lights Storage Bag. Simply wrap your lights around the reels and tuck them into the storage case to keep them tangle- and dust-free, and easy to unfurl next year.

Christmas Ornament Storage

The other big job you face after Christmas is taking down your tree. Make it go faster with a Cushioned Ornament Holder. This quilted case with foam-padded dividers keeps each ornament stowed safely until next year—no time spent wrapping each ornament individually. Then, store your faux tree it easily with this clever wheeled storage bag: it protects your tree all year and makes it incredibly easy to move to and from storage.

Wrapping up the rest of your holiday items—wreaths, tabletop trees, leftover gift wrap and more—is a breeze with durable zippered bags sized and shaped just right for your decorations. Protect everything from dust and moisture, and make it easy to find and ready to use next year.

Wondering where, exactly, you’re going to store all these items for an entire year? Here’s a secret: if you think you’re short on storage space, just look up. You have lots of unused space in your garage and laundry room between your head and the ceiling; all you need is an Overhead Storage Organizer to let you take advantage of it. Even transform ceiling space in your basement or mud room with a ceiling storage kit you can adjust to fit your space.

These smart ideas make it easier to clean up from the holiday this year, and they’re a great way to leave yourself a little present for next year: the gift of easy-to-use Christmas decorations!

Do you have an unofficial competition on your block for the best holiday lights? Maybe it’s your turn to host Christmas dinner (or the office party) and you want your home to look its best. Whatever the reason you decorate, you don’t have to spend hours arranging holiday lighting in the cold or running multiple extension cords, thanks to clever technology and modern LED decorations—some are so efficient that they’re even powered by batteries.

One of the quickest, easiest ways to light the entire outside of your home is with our Firefly Landscape Laser Light  Just stake it, plug it in, and it looks like you’ve strung 1,000 lights. Shine it on a giant tree, and when the wind blows, the lights even appear to twinkle. We guarantee you won’t miss climbing up and down the ladder on a cold day to string holiday lighting.

As Thanksgiving nears, one of our teammate’s favorite seasonal items on Solutions.com is now in the spotlight.   Tom the Animated Turkey s a beloved character, and not for his oven-roasted flavor!  You could consider him a vegetarian’s favorite turkey, but we prefer to think of Tom as a cheerful surprise for holiday visitors.  We hear the animated turkey brings lots of smiles.

Amy, our merchant, is a pink flamingo “junkie” and can’t help but smile every time she sees her pink flock in the yard.

What can you do with your own party pack of flamingos? Here are 6 fun ways to flamingo!

  1. Flock a friend on her birthday…just show up late at night or early in the morning so it’s a surprise in her yard first thing in the morning.
  2. Use them for party invitations. Use a permanent marker to list the details of your party, then plant near their front door. More fun than an invitation in the mail.
  3. Use them to add color to your yard before spring flowers bloom.
  4. Dress them up with a Santa hat…or an Easter bonnet. You’ll have fun decorating for every season.
  5. Use them to decorate when you throw a party in the cold, dark days of winter and make the theme tropical. You and your guests can pretend it’s not cold and snowy outside.
  6. Stake by the curb and tell guests your house is the one with flamingos.
