As summer comes to an end and we get into the fall season, it's almost time to begin decorating for the holidays. Whether you have a tower of decorations, or a few containers of extras to put around your home, you probably devote more space in your home to decorations than you realize.

Holiday decorations are one of the most popular things that customers place in their AG storage units. If you're searching for space for these items using self-storage can give you more room for all your decor, and help keep it safe and organized as well. Follow our storage tips and you'll always know right where your favorite decorations are. 

Gather Your Seasonal Decorations Together

Before you pick out storage in Arroyo Grande, CA, gather up all your decorations that you would like to store during the offseason. Put these items in one area so you can see just how much space they actually consume. Doing this will help you get organized and it will give you an idea of how much space you need for your holiday storage solution. Gathering up like items into one area is an excellent home organization tip, and we recommend doing it whenever you want to quickly deal with one type of item in your home. 

Pack Your Decorations Properly

Once you have it all together, it's time to package up your decorations so they'll be safe and secure during storage. Put each of your decorations into an airtight container or box and wrap the delicate items with care. Use wrapping paper or bubble wrap for glass, ceramic, and other breakable items. Also, be careful to wrap up strands of lights, garland, and other long items in neat coils that won't tangle over time. There are specialized holders for these sorts of items to keep them sorted. 

Label and Stack Everything with Purpose

Along with carefully packing up your decorations to be put into AG storage, also label each package so you know what it's holding within. Be as specific as you can with your labels, and use thick tape, or permanent marker for each label so it won't wear out or fall off. When you have everything labeled, you can start piling up the items in your holiday storage to get them out of your house. Keep the different decorations grouped together in your unit so you can quickly locate the boxes you want and avoid the rest.
