How to Organize and Store Your Holiday Decor

When it's time to untrim the tree and take down the stockings, Simply host Haley Cairo has the perfect system for storing all your holiday decorations safely.

Decorating the house for the holidays is fun. But undecorating everything and storing it away for another season? Not exactly tops on anyone's list of to-dos.

Fortunately, Simply host Haley Cairo has some smart solutions to make stashing all your holiday decor easier. She starts by using soft holiday decor (think towels, pillow covers, and more) to surround breakable items to help avoid chips and breakage. (You can also reuse and recycle bubble wrap, peanuts, and other wrappings from any shipped gifts to help protect your valuables.)

Consider upgrading from your standard cardboard boxes to provide additional protection for your holiday decorations, as many dedicated holiday decor storage solutions are made of water-resistant materials like polypropylene. Using colorful red and green bins makes it easier to pick out your holiday decor in a crowded storage area.

Here are Haley's holiday storage MVPs that you might want to check out.
