10 Tips to Organize Holiday Storage Space

organize holiday storageThe holidays are hectic enough without any added disorganization! The last thing you want to do during this busy time is to have to search for things or run around trying to find last-minute replacements. Our team at Organizing Boston has put together these 10 tips to organize holiday storage space. Get it organized now before the chaos begins. Plus, when the holidays are over, putting everything away will be a snap!

  1. Assess your current situation: Perhaps you’ve always hosted the holidays, but now your kids are grown and hosting them. Maybe you’ve downsized and just don’t have the windows for 12 wreaths anymore. Have a general idea what you need and want to keep before you start the organizing process. This will especially help you when it comes to the decluttering part.
  2. Clear it out: Remove everything from the closet or shelves, so that you can start with a blank slate.
  3. Consolidate: If you have holiday items stored all throughout your home, collect them and put them in one place, so you can see everything you have.
  4. Sort: Sort through everything and create categories such as, decorations, wrapping paper, gifts, etc.
  5. Declutter: Get rid of anything you no longer want, need or like. Toss broken items.
  6. Create a list: Is there anything that you need to replace? Broken lights, holiday cards, etc. Make a list so you can replace these items when you shop for containers.
  7. Containerize: Find containers that will hold everything you are keeping and fit in the space where you are storing them. The Container Store has a great selection of holiday organizing containers that will keep your ornaments safe, your wrapping paper organized and your lights untangled.
  8. Store: Put everything away in the containers by category and put items back into the storage space.
  9. Label: Label containers and shelves with easy-to-read labels and you won’t have to search for something ever again!
  10. When it comes time to put everything away after the holidays, follow this process again to ensure you’ll be organized and ready for next year!

This holiday season, give the gift of an organized life. We have gift certificates available and will email you a certificate the same day your order. It’s not too late!
