I always drag my feet at the end of the season when it's time to take the tree down. First, everything always looks so bright and festive and fun, and I always hate to see that end. But more importantly, I really hate putting everything away! So this year I decided to get smart, and look for some great ways to properly store everything.
Take a look at my choices for the best Christmas ornament storage containers, I'm sure you can find the right one for you.
I always like to take a close look at a variety of options, there could be something I haven't thought of or considered. To start, I knew I wanted something that wasn't going to break the bank, could be stored easily and stacked if I needed more than one.
I also wanted something that was easily identifiable as my holiday decor!
I wanted a system that had a flexible and easy to use system inside, and was fairly durable for storing year after year.
Take a look at what I found!
This is an easy bin to recommend. It comes in a pretty red polyester (think durable) with green trim and handles, and has an easy and well fitted lid to keep the contents clean and pest free. This bin is a 12 x 12 x 12 square that is collapsible when not in use, and easy to identify as holiday decor.
This bin is not terribly large, and holds 64 round baubles. The dividers are adjustable for your particular needs, so you are not locked in and can easily personalize how you arrange your items. Be aware that many Christmas decor items are larger these days, so you may not get anywhere near 64 items in this box. These do stack and store very nicely due to their shape and size.
The price is very affordable, so buying multiples to store all of your decor can be a smart way to organize for the holiday season.
This cute polka dot rectangular storage box has 112 divided spots for your tree decor, but like all of these selections, the actually number could be less based on the size of your particular tree baubles.
This is made with a very sturdy plastic for the box itself, and inside the dividers are a sturdy and adjustable cardboard. There are two attractive red handles for carrying and storing after the tree comes down.
This is a brand well known for quality and simplicity, and although the price is slightly more than some of the other choices, it is well worth considering for your holiday decor.
This is a heavy duty storage bag in a cranberry polyester with a cute winter berry decorative pattern on it. Instead of side handles that can deteriorate and break if you over stuff, this has a nice top carrying handle with a comfort pad on it, making it really easy to carry and store away.
Inside, this bag can hold up to 60 decorative items. I really like that each of the three trays can be removed easily, using the unique ribbon handles on the trays, and reconfigured as needed. The nice zippered top means nothing slides out and nothing gets in, and there is an easy view window on top to help you identify what is in each bag.
Although not the cheapest item I've found, this has some unique features that really make this bag stand out as a great option for ease of use and durability and is one of my favorites.
These sturdy plastic bins with a pretty red wing lid top are also a really nice option for storing your holiday items.
This is a set of two bins - one bin has a divider set for all of your tree decor, the other bin does not contain dividers and is to be used for your larger decor storage. They stack beautifully.
Inside, one bin comes with a 75 section cardboard divider set for for all of your tree decor. The other bin has no dividers and is designed to hold your larger holiday decorations. I love that this set also comes with a small red plastic bin to keep all of your tree hangers in one convenient place, and easily stores inside.
I would consider the price reasonable for this set, and could be just what you're looking for to store your decor!
Let's get this out of the way first...this bag is not the cheapest option by a long shot! Now that we have that out of the way, let me tell you why it may just be worth the extra money to you!
This bag is made from a moisture resistant polyester, and is acid-free...this helps protect your ornaments from tarnishing. It has nice handles for carrying the bag, a clear window on top for easily identifying the contents, and a place to label the bag if needed.
This particular bag can hold 84 pieces, although they make other sizes that range from 60 to 108 pieces. I love that the four padded trays are fully adjustable for that uniquely shaped item!
