Christmas wreaths can be difficult to stack and store. Not to mention their fragile nature. These protective options are great for saving space and keeping all of your wreaths organized, no matter the size.
storage ideas for christmas lights
I don’t know about you, but I think I’d rather sit through a root canal than untangle all of my Christmas lights each year. Well, up until now at least. Investing in Christmas light organizers was one of the smartest buys I made this holiday. They make it so much easier to find what you need each season and prevent hours of headaches spent untangling lights.
christmas garland storage
Up until this year, I used to simply toss all of my garland in a plastic tote. But as I add onto my collection I realized I needed some better organization for all of the different varieties I have. Not to mention, they can be extremely bulky to store. Below are some great options I found to help store everything from large fluffy garland to thin strands that can easily be put into some slim space-saving options.

ornament storage containers
Since I collect a lot of shatterproof ornaments to swap out my Christmas tree themes each year, my favorite storage hack is a simple large clear rolling ornament storage tote below. I can see everything in it a glance and I don’t have to worry about dividing precious breakables. But glass and porcelain ornaments require some special care. So I rounded up some great soft-sided and plastic stacking organizers for just that need!
christmas tree storage
Are you still storing your artificial Christmas tree in the same box it was purchased in? If so, chances are it’s almost shred to pieces and a total pain in the you-know-what to lug out of storage each holiday season. That’s why investing in an inexpensive Christmas tree storage tote or bag is the way to go. Not to mention, most of them almost always come with wheels to make it effortless to move around.
I don’t know who invented upright Christmas tree storage, but the idea is genius. Who wants to take their tree apart and put it back together each year when you can simply unwrap and go?! Well, minus a little fluffing of course.
I took a leap and flocked our old Christmas tree this year, and I am not about to ruin that gorgeous DIY job by taking apart all of the branches. Nope, I’m going for easy this year with one of these upright storage bags. That, and bribing my hubby to help me carry the thing down into the basement.
christmas storage sets
There’s just something about coordinated Christmas storage that makes my organizing heart so happy. So when I stumbled across some of these sets I had to share them with you. Of course, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a simple set of matching clear totes to help make Christmas organization easier. (One of my personal favorite go-tos)!
Happy New Year and happy organizing all of your Christmas décor this year! Got a question? Drop me a comment below. I love hearing from you and I ready every single one.
