Homebox, a specialist in self-storage in France, explains how to store and store your Christmas decor like a pro.  

Well Pack Your Christmas Decoration

If possible, keep the original boxes of Christmas balls and other decorative objects specially designed to store them. You do not have them anymore? A table of eggs can do the trick! Another tip, use old cartons moving individual bottles or glasses, efficient thanks to their compartments that will avoid shocks. To effectively protect your most fragile objects, do not hesitate to use bubble wrap or tissue paper.

Pack your Christmas wreath in a plastic bag before storing it in a box to protect it from dust and moisture. Ditto for your artificial tree. Your garlands of light get tangled despite all your efforts? Wrap them around a roll of paper towels, a cardboard chute or a simple hanger with hooks. 

Keep Safe

Group your tables and do not forget to label them to find them at a glance.
