Let's Talk Storage Bins!
Storage Bins! You seriously cannot get enough of these. Cardboard boxes just don't cut it when you are storing things year after year, so investing in good quality storage bins is a must! Not to mention cardboard boxes attract vermin. Ew! Gross!
I like these large clear bins because you can actually see what it is you store inside of them, and the lid snaps close so you know is is secure and ready to store those precious holiday decorations. Currently ON SALE for $46.61 for a lot of 6 of these, that makes them less than 8 dollars each!
Don't forget the Storage bin labels:
Almost every year the children and I make a new Christmas wreath. These wreath storage bags are perfect for preserving your special wreaths from year to year, and I love that you can see inside so you know exactly what's in there.
What about all those Christmas Tree Ornaments?
Christmas tree balls organizer. This one holds, ready for this?... 64 Christmas balls:
And for those more delicate, or extra special and sentimental ornaments that you just want to last for as many generations to come as possible, here is a heavy duty, extra protective Christmas ornament storage container that holds up to 20 special ornaments.
If you're anything like me, you have A LOT of special, sentimental ornaments. So I just ordered this more economical option. Each bin stores 24 ornaments, and at $48.99 for a lot of 4, that makes them $12.25 each! Alright! Can't wait to throw out those flimsy shoe boxes I've been using for too long to store my ornaments in!
But what about the tree itself?
Sometimes, allergies... or the strong desire not to have to remember to water the tree and clean up falling needles every single day, prevents you from buying a live Christmas tree. In the case of the synthetic Christmas tree, you want to preserve it for as long as possible. This storage bag is sturdy, and much less expensive than other comparable options. Check it out:
