Now that the holiday season is coming to a close, only one question remains: Where do we put all this stuff? From the Christmas tree to the ornaments, from the holiday decorations to the strands of lights...where does it all go for the next 10 months? With Kelowna self-storage from Airport Village, we have self-storage units that are perfect for packing and storing your holiday decor, with a few tips below to help you pack it all effectively.

A Little Organization Goes a Long Way 

Have you ever pulled out your strands of holiday lights only to find they’ve somehow become a giant tangled mess? Or have you ever been looking for one specific Christmas ornament and had to open box after box to find it? A bit of organization will make your next holiday season much less stressful when you pack your decor this year.

Renting a storage unit in Kelowna can help free up space in your home, but to reduce stress next year when you unpack your decor, be sure to organize your decor with plenty of labels. Group items by holiday, and pack the boxes in the same order you’ll use them the next year.

You Can Never Use Too Much Bubble Wrap

Christmas ornaments and holiday lights are fragile. There’s nothing more frustrating than pulling out your favorite heirloom ornament, only to find it’s cracked or shattered. When packing your Kelowna storage unit, be sure to place the heaviest items on the bottom. Things that aren’t fragile, like wreaths or stuffed animals, can be placed to fill in spaces between your boxes. But to ensure your lights and ornaments live to see another holiday season, wrap them in bubble wrap. And then, to be safe, wrap them again.

Your self-storage unit in Kelowna will be kept safe, clean, and secure, and if you pack your items safely and securely, you’ll be amazed at how long holiday decor can last.

Don’t Mix Holiday Decor With Other Home Items 

Airport Village’s self-storage in Kelowna has multiple options for storage unit sizes, so we’ll always have plenty of room for your holiday decor. If you have leftover space in your self-storage, it may be tempting to fill it with any extra things you can around the house to make more space. But, before you do that, be sure to keep things separate. If you mix holiday decor with other random stuff from around the house, chances are you’ll be stressed and frustrated trying to sort it back out next holiday season.

Use plenty of tape and labels to make sure you know exactly what is in each box, and try and group your boxes by season or holiday. Keep home items and holiday decor boxed and labeled separately, and unpacking your Kelowna storage unit will be a breeze.

Do a Little At a Time

Lastly, don’t stress! The holidays can be a stressful time of year, but it should be a fun time as well. Packing decor shouldn’t make you miserable. Take a few items a day and pack them, spreading out your packing over a few days or a few weeks, whatever fits your schedule best. A little work goes a long way, and you’ll be thrilled to see how much more spacious your home feels when you’ve packed your holiday decor into self-storage.
