Let’s Get Organized 1,2,3!
Step I: Packaging Materials: Problem: Clutter, you end up tossing loads of wrapping paper and other packaging materials.
Solution: Instead of throwing away used gift wrap and tissue paper, run it through a paper shredder and stuff in garbage bags. Use the fluffy strips as packing filler when you’re putting away your decorations, suggests Sandy Stuckey, a former director of special events and entertainment at Gaylord Opryland, in Nashville.
Step II. Season-End Tear-Down First , let’s not forget your perfected decorating scheme from year to year. When the season is over and it’s time to pack up the decorations we should: 1. Document your Christmas decorating schemes with digital pictures. 2. Label each string of lights, segment of garland, or ball of mistletoe with a marker and masking tape as you take it down so you’ll always know which item to hang in the entryway and which is just the right size for the mantel.
Step III. Storage Packing of previously marked lights, tree , garland and miscellaneous decorations. Place in plastic storage bins, and store them in garage overhead “seasonal” loft storage units. This underutilized space in your garage is a perfect for storage. Garage overhead “seasonal” loft storage units are out of site and easily accessed next season. These garage lofts safely hold up to several hundred lbs. of distributed weight. Visit our Website for more organizational ideas at www.EncoreGarage.com
