Storing the Holidays

It’s that sad time of the year when you have to take down the tree and Christmas decorations.   How can you ensure your items are kept safe until next year’s holiday season?

We’ve come up with several tips and tricks that will help you ensure that every Christmas will be as Amazing (if not better, hello after Christmas sales) as this past one.

1.Utilize proper storage containers for ornaments

2. Label fragile items

3.When in doubt: wrap, protect, repeat

We recommend using a product like our biodegradable cornstarch packing peanuts.  If you just want bubble wrap, make sure to buy wrap that has the correct sized bubbles. The smaller the item, the smaller the bubble you need.

4. Store items in climate-controlled storage units

This is a no-brainer, especially for those used to the Houston climate. If you want to ensure your items stay in prime condition, then make sure to utilize a climate controlled unit with individual ventilation.
