Everything tends to get a little more hectic around the holidays, which can cause some people to become overwhelmed, and sometimes disorganized. Fortunately, having a storage space can be a big help when it comes to staying organized. Follow these tips to make the most of your storage space during the holidays.
Label Your Belongings
When you keep your belongings in storage, it can be a hassle to dig through everything in order to find the items you are looking for. Save time and energy by labeling each box with its contents. This way you can tell what is inside at a glance, without making a mess or wasting any time. If you want to remember the layout of your decorations, you can label each piece with its location as you take it down; with just a piece of tape and a marker, you will be able to easily recreate your holiday setup.
During the holiday rush, you want to be shopping for presents for loved ones, not for new decorations. This is why it is important to store your delicate items properly, so that they can be reused year after year. Place fragile decorations and ornaments inside resealable sandwich bags, and then store these bags inside a durable box with plenty of padding. It will be reassuring to know that your decorations will be just the way you left them.
Keep a List
One particularly creative way to stay organized during the holidays is to keep a computerized list of the contents of your boxes. This way, all you have to do is search your list for your desired item, and you will immediately be presented with its location. This is a very convenient way to save time during the holidays.
