Using Storage Boxes To Organise Your Christmas And Halloween Décor

In the UK, we love an excuse to decorate! From Halloween to Christmas, it’s fun to trim our homes and get into the festive spirit. But amongst all the joy of decorating, the challenge arises when it's time to pack away those vibrant decorations until next year. If you struggle with how to store all of your Christmas, Halloween and other seasonal décor, this is this post for you. 

In this blog post, we'll explore the art of storing your Christmas and Halloween decor using storage boxes, tea crates, and other clever solutions, keeping your belongings safe and your home neat and organised. 

The importance of storage boxes 

Storage boxes are the unsung heroes of decluttering and organising. When it comes to stowing away your festive decor, investing in high-quality storage boxes is key. Opt for sturdy, stackable options that can withstand the test of time and keep your decorations safe from dust, moisture, and accidental bumps. 

Types of storage boxes 

There are several types of storage boxes and crates available to help you store away your festive décor safely. You may need a range of options to accommodate decorations of different sizes, as well as to fit your storage space. Some storage options to consider include: 

Cardboard storage/moving boxes 

Cardboard storage/moving boxes are ideal for storing your Halloween and Christmas decorations. They can be stacked easily, and come in a range of sizes to suit your needs. Cardboard moving boxes can also be reused, making them a sustainable option for your home.  

Lidded crates 

Lidded crates are a strong and sturdy option to safeguard all of your decorations. You can hire crates for as long as you need, giving you plenty of flexibility for storing your goods. They come in different sizes and can be stacked to save space. They’ll protect your decorations from damage, keeping them free from dust and damp throughout the year. 

Pallet boxes 

Pallet boxes are perfect for heavy-duty storage. They can help you store away different items, and can be used easily in your garage, attic, shed or anywhere else you store your seasonal décor. Provided they’re covered carefully, your goods can be stored out of harm’s way. 

Plastic food crates 

Food crates are stackable, sturdy and affordable, and they’re ideal for storing your decorations. Use them to store your ornaments, wrapping and paper items easily, ready to be used again next year.  

Whichever type of crate you choose, you should ensure the crates are clean, dry, and appropriately sized to accommodate various decorations. 

Tips for organising your Halloween and Christmas décor 

With your storage boxes and crates ready to go, you can get to work organising your décor. Some of our top tips include: 

Categorise and label 

To streamline the unpacking process, categorise your decorations into groups such as lights, ornaments, and figurines. Use labels on your storage boxes to clearly indicate the contents inside. This not only makes it easy to locate items but also adds a sense of order to your storage space. 

Preserve fragile items 

Delicate ornaments and heirlooms require extra care. Wrap fragile items in tissue paper or bubble wrap before placing them in storage boxes. For added protection, consider using dividers within the boxes to prevent items from knocking into each other during transit or storage. 

Stack items carefully 

When stacking your storage boxes, be mindful of weight distribution. Place heavier items at the bottom and lighter ones on top to prevent crushing or damage. Ensure that the boxes are securely closed to protect against dust and pests. 

Unpack with care 

When the time comes to unpack your items, take care when unwrapping and removing items from storage. Keep any of the packing materials used so that you can use them again if needed when you move your items back into storage.
