Putting Holiday Decorations in Las Vegas Storage Units


June 21, 2017

You can only use decorations for Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and other holidays once per year, which means most of the time these decorations are taking up valuable space in your home. Many people clean up the clutter by placing their holiday decorations in Las Vegas storage units for the off-season. If you want to follow their lead, here are some of the decorations that you should store (and a few you should throw away, too!):

Ornaments

Christmas ornaments can be safely stored in storage units as long as you take the time to pack them properly. Some ornaments are more fragile than others, so be sure to wrap these in protective padding to prevent damage.

Christmas Lights

If you have strands upon strands of decorative Christmas lights, don’t let them get tangled up in your attic. Neatly wrap them up and place them inside a storage unit until the next holiday season. But, before you bring them to your storage unit, it’s important to test each strand to look for broken lights. If a lot of lights are broken, it’s better to toss these lights instead of placing them in storage. There is also a neat trick how to keep your christmas lights tangle free.

Halloween Costumes

Most people don’t wear the same Halloween costume year after year, but if you want to hold onto your costume for sentimental reasons, these are safe to put in storage. Many costumes come with masks or make-up sets to help you achieve the look that you desire. Masks will be safe inside a storage unit, but it’s best to leave the make-up kits at home or throw them away if you don’t plan on using them again.  

Decorative Wreaths

Do you change the wreath on your front door every time a holiday is approaching? Many people have decorative wreaths for spring, summer, fall, and winter, and special wreaths for each holiday, too. If you have a sizable wreath collection, consider putting the ones that you don’t need right now inside a storage unit. It may be wise to hang your wreaths on hooks inside your storage unit so they keep their shape. Visit your local hardware store and look for hooks that will stick to the walls inside your storage unit. 
 

Inflatable Yard Decorations

Do you use inflatable yard decorations to celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other holidays? Once these decorations have been deflated, carefully wash them to remove any dirt or debris that could have accumulated on their surfaces. Then, let them completely dry and transfer them into your storage unit. As long as you thoroughly wash and dry these items, they will hold up well inside a storage unit.
