Seasonal Storage: An Introduction

Would you be ashamed to let a friend see your seasonal storage closet? When Thanksgiving is over, do you have trouble finding your holiday decorations? Do you have to climb over things in your basement or garage to locate your seasonal storage items? If you answered yes to any of these questions, itís probably time for you to organize your seasonal storage!

When we say "holiday organization", we're talking about more than just the tree and trimmings. We want to help you organize all those other things, too, like your holiday dinner seating chart, the Christmas card mailing list, and your kids' Christmas lists they've been working on since early June. We've got great ideas to help you clean out, clean up, and stay organized for years to come.

At the top of this page, you'll find a list of quick links to various sections and topics. One of those links is to a step by step tutorial, but please don't feel like you have to read everything in order! If you don't have Christmas wreaths, just skip over that section. Or if all you're interested in is new ideas for storing your expensive collection of ornaments, go straight to that page. You'll also want to take note of our additional organizing articles and ideas. For example, you'll find a page about setting up a permanent wrapping station in your home. Many of us have an unused desk or table in our basement. Put it good use and set up a wrapping station complete with paper and all your supplies! You'll find photos of wrapping stations, plus lots of helpful tips to get you started.

You'll also find a helpful article about creating a Holiday Organization notebook. This all-in-one notebook can be used to hold all kinds of information: Christmas lists, shopping budget, dinner menus, party invitation lists, and more. Another great idea: Take photos of how you've decorated your home in past years! Perhaps last year you did a really superb job of decorating your tree. Before you un-decorate it, snap a quick picture and keep it in your Holiday Organization notebook. You can do this with special greenery arrangements, centerpieces, even your table settings for holiday dinners. Visit the article on Holiday Organization notebooks for more information on how to create your own and great ideas for what to put in it.

We've also got several articles devoted to wrapping paper organization. If you are fortunate enough to have some extra room in your home, you might be interested in our article on creating a Wrapping Station in your home. This explains how you can set up an old desk or work area as a place dedicated to wrapping gifts. We'll show you all the basics in a detailed photograph of how you can organize your ribbons, bows, rolls of paper, and all the tools of the trade, too. Or, if you're like most of us, and you are limited on space in your home, we have another article especially for you: How to create a Wrapping Supply Hamper! This article details how you can take a simple laundry hamper and convert it into an organizational solution for your wrapping paper and supplies. Depending on the type and size of hamper you choose, your Wrapping Supply Hamper can be stored in a tight space such as a closet or even underneath a bed!
