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!
