3 Tips to Prepare Your Holiday Decorations for a Storage Unit January 4, 2017

3 Tips to Prepare Your Holiday Decorations for a Storage Unit, Anchorage, Alaska

When the new year rolls in, it’s a sure sign that it’s time to take down the holiday decorations. From untangling your Christmas lights to wrapping up precious ornaments one-by-one in newspaper, you’ll have to put in some prep work to preserve your seasonal gems until next year. Since you won’t need them again for a while, keeping them in a storage unit gets them out of the way until later in the year and saves space in your home.

As you prepare to store your holiday decorations, keep the following tips in mind:

  • storage unitHave The Right Materials On Hand: Taking down holiday decorations requires more time and effort than simply tossing everything into one big box. Before you start, you need boxes of the appropriate size and strength, tape, and newspaper or bubble wrap. A sealed plastic storage container will keep out moisture and is preferable to cardboard boxes. 
  • Get Help From Family & Friends: Putting up holiday decorations tends to be a group activity — there’s no reason that taking them down can’t be, as well! Enlist the help of your loved ones to get the job done efficiently. An extra set of hands can also prove handy for trickier tasks, such as removing your plastic Santa from the rooftop or untangling long strings of lights.
  • Find The Right Storage Space: Once you’ve safely packed away all your cherished holiday items, you’ll want a secure and dry storage space to keep them in. If you don’t have room in your house, consider a storage unit, where your holiday baubles will be well-kept. It’s a convenient option because you know they won’t be needed until next year — so there’s no reason to have them at home.
