The Art of Timing: Mastering Post-Christmas Decoration Storage

As the vibrant hues of Christmas fade into the serene embrace of the New Year, a key question looms in the minds of many: “When is the ideal time to pack away our beloved Christmas decorations?” The answer, while seemingly straightforward, encompasses a blend of cultural traditions, personal preferences, and practical considerations. Let’s delve deeper into this topic, courtesy of A Plus Super Storage, your trusted partner in smart and secure storage solutions.

Mastering Post Christmas Decoration Storage

Cultural Traditions and Personal Preferences

The timing for stowing away Christmas decorations varies widely. Traditionally, many adhere to the Twelve Days of Christmas, a period that stretches from December 25th to January 6th, culminating on Epiphany or Three Kings’ Day.

 

On the other hand, some prefer to start the New Year afresh, choosing to store decorations promptly after January 1st. This approach often symbolizes a new beginning, clearing the old to make way for the new.

Practical Considerations

Beyond tradition and preference, practical factors play a crucial role. Procrastination can lead to clutter and disorganization, diminishing the joy that these decorations bring. Conversely, rushing the process may result in damage or disarray, complicating future holiday preparations.

Methodical Decluttering and Assessment

Post-Christmas is an opportune time for decluttering. Carefully examine each decoration. Does it hold sentimental value? Is it in good condition? Deciding what to keep, donate, or discard not only simplifies your storage but also paves the way for rejuvenating your future holiday décor.

Cleaning and Preparation: A Must-Do Step

Before packing, ensure that each item is clean and dry. This step is crucial, especially for items that were displayed outdoors and are susceptible to moisture and dirt. Clean decorations prevent potential issues like mold and maintain their pristine condition.

Post-Holiday Storage Guide: Smartly Storing Your Christmas Decorations

As the last echoes of Christmas carols fade and the festive season winds down, it’s time to think about the less glamorous, but equally important, task of storing your Christmas decorations. Doing this right ensures that your cherished decorations remain in perfect condition, ready to spread joy again next year. Here’s a step-by-step guide from A Plus Super Storage to help you with this task.

Post Holiday Storage Guide

Step 1: Assess and Organize

Start by taking stock of your decorations. Sort them into categories like lights, baubles, wreaths, and figurines. It’s also a good time to decide what you might want to donate or discard. Remember, decluttering is as much a part of the post-holiday process as storage.

Step 2: Clean and Prep

Gently clean your decorations before storing them. This step is crucial for items like artificial trees or outdoor lights that may have gathered dust or debris. A clean start next year makes for an even brighter festive season.

Step 3: Safe Packing

Invest in quality storage containers. For delicate ornaments, consider compartmentalized boxes. Wrap lights around cardboard to prevent tangling and use tissue paper or bubble wrap for extra fragile items.

Step 4: Utilize Smart Storage Solutions

Here’s where A Plus Super Storage can elevate your storage experience. Consider our climate-controlled storage units for temperature-sensitive decorations like candles or vintage items. These units maintain a stable environment, protecting your treasures from extreme temperatures and humidity.

Step 5: Easy Access and Security

With the festivities over, you want your decorations stored in a place that’s accessible yet secure. A Plus Super Storage offers drive-up storage units, making the loading and unloading of your festive gear hassle-free. Plus, our on-site managers and security cameras ensure your items are safe until next season.

Step 6: Plan for Next Year

As you store away your decorations, take a moment to jot down any ideas or notes for next year’s decorations. This little step can spark even more creativity for the coming festive season.

 

Storing your Christmas decorations may not be as exhilarating as setting them up, but with the right approach, it can be a smooth and satisfying end to your holiday season. A Plus Super Storage is here to help, offering solutions like climate-controlled units, drive-up access, and top-notch security, ensuring your festive treasures are well-protected.

We understand that loading and unloading decorations can be laborious. That’s why our facilities include wide, well-lit driveways and electronic gate access, making the process as smooth as possible. Plus, with onsite moving supplies, you have everything you need right at your fingertips.

6 Tips for Long-Term Storage

Let us help you move into your apartment

Planning to store items for an extended period of time? A long-term storage rental might be just what you need. Here are tips to ensure your belongings stay safe and protected for weeks, months, or even years!


Choose the Right Size 

Select a storage unit that fits all of your stuff neatly and without overcrowding. Not sure how much space you need? Don’t worry—our Storage Unit Guide will help you figure it out in three easy steps.


Assess the Type of Storage You Need

Whether that be drive-up, dust-controlled, or climate-controlled storage options, know what type of unit is best for your stored items. Drive-up units may be more affordable, but in most cases, experience fluctuating weather and seasonal conditions. Climate-controlled units are ideal for storing things like electronics, antique furniture, photos, personal documents, or anything else that needs stable temps to prevent fast deterioration. 


Prepare Your Storage Contents

You can do this by investing in quality packing materials such as sturdy boxes, bubble wrap, packing peanuts, and furniture covers for storage protection. And, don’t forget to label and organize the contents in each box or tote. Once your items are inside a storage container, arrange them in your unit by placing the most-accessed items near the front so you can get in and out quickly. 


Arrange Large or Bulky Items 

For things like appliances and furniture, make sure you clean them first. And be sure to disassemble large furniture if possible, with the largest items going towards the back and the heaviest furniture at the bottom. This will save space so you can stack vertically and get the most use of your storage rental.


Know the Property Security Features

Consider choosing a facility with strong security measures such as surveillance cameras, gated access, well-lit driveways, and on-site staff. Be sure to ask questions like, How tall is the perimeter fencing? Or, How many security cameras monitor the property?


Check on Your Storage Regularly

Even for long-term storage, it’s a good idea to visit the unit periodically to inspect your belongings and ensure you are not finding mold, mildew, or unusual wear and tear. Also, we recommend rotating items regularly to maintain their condition.

By following these tips, you can help ensure that your items remain in good condition and are easily accessible, even after extended periods of storage. And luckily, renting a storage unit from A Plus Super Storage is simple. We make it easy with 7 convenient locations and no-hassle month-to-month agreements.

Spring Home Organization Tips

Prepare Your Home and Storage Unit for Spring

If you’re ready to get a jump on organizing your home or prepare for spring cleaning, now is the perfect time to start with those harder to reach places. Attics, basements, garages, coat closets, and even storage units need a refresh at least once a year. You may find sentimental or valuable items you forgot you had. This also gives you a chance to resell or donate things that no longer suit you.  Whether you are starting in the basement or in the attic, there are tried and true methods to help you declutter.

Sort all of your belongings. Make separate keep, discard, and donate piles so you can see how much stays and goes in each space.

Contain it. For everything that stays, find a way to contain it. Label storage bins and containers for easy access. If it doesn’t quite fit in a bin, set it aside to decide where it should go.

Take inventory. If you’re cleaning out a storage unit, make sure to take inventory of everything you have stored. This helps to easily decide which items to discard or donate without spending too much time looking through each box.

Find the right storage space. Now that you have determined what needs to stay, organize your space properly by grouping together holiday items, seasonal tools, or decorations. Make sure items are stacked and stored properly for easy access the next time. Remember those items that didn’t quite fit before? If you’re quickly running out of storage room, consider a storage unit to help make your space bigger, brighter, and decluttered.

And no matter where you are in the decluttering or cleaning stage, think about the future. 

  • Do you need a bigger or smaller unit if you are downsizing your storage items? 
  • Are you planning on selling your home soon? 
  • Will you need a place to store your furniture or bins while your home is on the market? 

Knowing these answers will help your next big move run much smoother by being prepared. If you’re ready to move on to spring cleaning, we have that covered for you here!
