Today’s post is brought to you by an OCD organization-addict who doesn’t have an attic.
That is right, our rental house doesn’t have an attic.
And together, my husband and I have BOXES of Christmas decorations. BOXES. People, we fill up a whole closet with our decorations. We need easy Christmas organization!
So, in the past few years we have created a fabulous system that is practical, long-lasting, and very quality. It costs a little bit of money, but it is worth it. I am going to cover four areas of Christmas decoration organization – and show you what works for us!
About two years ago, we happened upon a sale at Bed, Bath & Beyond – for Christmas Ornament Organizers. Genius, people. These things are a little pricey – but worth their weight in gold. They are sturdy (not like the soft-sided versions I have seen), efficient, and hold TONS of ornaments. We have two – and they hold upwords of a hundred ornaments or so. (We have a LOT of ornaments!). They don’t sell them at Bed, Bath & Beyond anymore (that I know of), but they are a reasonable price on Amazon. They make a great Christmas presents!
My husband and I have a weakness for Really Useful Boxes. Yes, they are really called that. We discovered them a few years ago, and since then, have bought about one a month for our storage. This will be another whole post – seriously – we have a wall of these boxes – but for now, I want to show you how they work for Christmas decorations!
We have a lot of 32 and 64 liter boxes. Both are great sizes. The 32 are best for files. The 64 is actually cheaper than the 32 – and holds a LOT of decorations. We have two of these for our stuff – and they are perfect.
Really Useful Boxes are AMAZING boxes. They are incredible quality. They have locked handles. They stack. They are tough. They really are the best. **UPDATE here is my latest post on these boxes – plus tons of pictures of how we use them in our house!**
WRAPPING PAPER ORGANIZATION
I like to have a system. I like to have all my supplies in one place. I found this wrapping paper box at Target one year – and it has been great! It holds plenty of supplies all in one place! I just slide it under my dresser (or my bed) and use it year-round. I have thought about changing my system to something cooler and more unique – but for now – this does the trick!
**AWESOME TIP: Check the after-Christmas sales at Target to pick one of these up for cheap!**
CHRISTMAS CARD DISPLAY
Well, this really isn’t a storage solution – it is a display and organization solution! I like to have all my Christmas cards displayed for the holidays – but don’t really want them propped up on every surface :). I love to see and pray for each face on a daily basis. Every year, I turn my kitchen window display into a Christmas card collage!
