Looking for ways to organize your Christmas Decor this year? Here are a few tips to purge, store and organize everything until the next season.
I must admit, I normally take down all my decor before the New Year so when January 1 rolls around the house is free of Christmas decor, the home is organized and ready to move forward. When I take everything down I always organize our Christmas decor for the next season and a new start for the following year.

Sort and Purge Christmas decoR
Before all the decor is packed up for storage I go through all my Christmas decor bins and decide what I want to keep, give to a friend or donate to Goodwill. I also purge when the decor comes down from storage too because maybe my style has changed. If I haven’t used something in a few seasons it’s time for it to go.
Organize by Category
I have five bins in storage for Christmas decor; one is for ornaments and garlands, window wreaths, nativity sets and a couple bins for the rest of my decor and ribbons, etc.
Invest in Christmas Storage
You can find plastic storage tubs in many stores. I have gray bins for everything, but all the Christmas decor is stored in red/green bins. We have 3 shelves for the bins and our Christmas trees in their storage bags. Once everything is packed up it only takes a short time to put it all away.
Determine Your Storage Location
We store all our decor in our unfinished room in the basement in bins on a metal storage rack we purchased a couple years ago. This rack has been a perfect fit and holds everything. We store everything there and I’ve tried to keep everything neat and organized with labeled bins. If you have a dedicated space for Christmas decor it makes putting everything away quick and easy. You may have a space in your garage or attic but find a space to keep things tidy.
Hope all that helps with all your organizing this season!
