Unpack your Decorations with Packing them again in Mind
Ever wonder how that big ball of holiday lights got so tangled in the first place? Most likely it wasn’t secret elves making a mess till next year, it likely is the result of not properly packing your items once the season is over. This season try taking stock of your items when unpacking them can help you organize things when it is time to pack them away again. If your items are jammed into old torn boxes try upgrading to storage crates that give you plenty of room to pack.
Prepare Your Tree for Removal
For those of us that just can’t live without a live tree we understand that needles can/are a big problem when you elect to having a live tree. To minimize having pine needles all over the place when you try to pack up and move your tree out of your home for disposal try prepping your tree for removal when you put it up. Simply try a tree disposal bag. Place the trunk of your tree around a tree bag or mattress bag if you can’t find one. You can hide it under the tree skirt and when it is time to remove your tree all you have to du is pull the bar up over the branches making removal simple and clean.
