How to pack holiday decorations 🎁

1. Start Early:

Before the hustle and bustle of moving day, give yourself ample time to prepare. Begin by sorting through your holiday decorations. Determine which items you want to keep and which ones you can let go. Donating or selling unwanted decorations can lighten your load, making the packing process easier.

2. Gather Packing Supplies:

You’ll need a range of packing supplies to ensure your holiday decorations are protected during the move. Stock up on sturdy cardboard boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap, packing tape, and markers for labeling.

3. Organize and Label:

Categorize your decorations by type, size, and fragility. Place smaller ornaments in divided boxes or egg cartons to prevent breakage. Be sure to label each box with its contents and indicate whether they’re fragile or not.

4. Wrap with Care:

Use packing paper or bubble wrap to individually wrap delicate items like glass ornaments, figurines, and ceramic decorations. Ensure that each item is cushioned to prevent any damage during the move. For larger decorations like wreaths and artificial trees, use plastic wrap or special storage bags to protect them from dust and damage.

5. Store Ornaments in Plastic Bins:

If you have a vast collection of ornaments, consider using clear plastic bins with dividers. This not only protects your ornaments but also allows you to see what’s inside without opening the box.
