Recycled Storage Solutions for Holiday Decor



While most people enjoy the beautiful holiday festive décor, less people enjoy the setting up and taking down of all the “holiday cheer.”  

Make your holiday storage as green, inexpensive and hassle free as possible. 

Here are a few quick tips to get you going:

·      Save those egg cartons!  Egg carton are perfect for storing small bulbs and ornaments.

·      Repurpose cardboard toilet paper rolls to keep bows in shape.

·      Wrap Christmas lights around heavy pieces of cardboard to keep them tangle-free. This also makes for easy restringing lights on next year’s tree.  

        For more than one Christmas tree, keep all ornaments for that tree in the same tote.  Label the tote according to which room the tree will be in.  Next year that box will end up in the room you want it to go to without the need to dig through it and figure that out! 

       Some decorations you may want to keep out during the winter months, be sure to label a box, “Winter decorations” so they do not end up mixed in with Christmas décor.

Winter months can feel long and dark.  Why not keep some of those Christmas lights out and put them in a glass jar or glass blocks?  A little left over “holiday cheer’ through the winter will help chase away the blues.

Refresh your home with a green cleanup after you put away the Christmas decorations.  Dust end tables, bookshelves and the fireplace mantel with Brightly Green Wood Floor Cleaner. 

Refresh floors with Brightly Green Wood Floor Cleaner or Brightly Green Granite and Tile Cleaner.  Let the fresh essential oil scent of lavender renew your spirits while you clean!

May this New Year be filled with wonderful adventures and new memories to create!
