13 Holiday Storage Hacks That Will Save Christmas (And Your Sanity)

#7 is GENIUS.

Decorating for the holidays is great...until you have to clean it all up. Ornaments, garland, wreaths, Christmas trees -- they are all beautiful to look at but a pain to keep organized and in good shape.

This year, make it your mission to get your act together. Don't be a crazy-disorganized hoarder and finally come up with a system for storing all of your stuff. Next year you will be oh-so-thankful.

1
Store garland in a water bottle, so it stays contained and untangled.
2
Keep your gift wrapping ribbon organized on a hanger.
3
Hang your wreaths on a clothing rack.
4
Dividers keep your ornaments from breaking.
5
Don't have dividers? Use old egg cartons.
6
Cups work too.
7
Wrapping paper stays put when placed in a hanging garment bag.
8
Turn plastic drawers into a present wrapping station.
9
Store unruly garland in an empty trashcan.
10
Label your plastic storage containers for efficient packing and unpacking.
11
Wrap Christmas lights around cardboard pieces to avoid tangles.
12
Shrink wrap your Christmas tree.
13
Once everything is packed away, consider shelving for your attic, basement or closet that will keep everything organized all year long.
