  1. Love your ideas! The biggest change in storage came from donating old light strings that I know I will not use in the future. That freed up several plastic totes for new ornaments purchased this year!
    BTW, do you remember where you bought the white ribbon with red hatch marks? It is tied in bows on your elegant Christmas dining table. I’ve checked Amazon, no luck.

    1. Thank you so much! Now that all my trees are prelit and I use mostly icicle lights outside, I’m happy not to have to store and untangle many string lights anymore too. I got that cute ribbon at Hobby Lobby last year (2021). They’ve already pulled their ribbon from the floor this year, but may have it again next season.

  2. Thank you, Kate, for your very helpful organizational tips. I am going to buy two of the rolling bags in which to store my beautiful 9 ft. white tree. I do not like to smoosh the tree into the original box. I have never stored anything in the attic because I was worried that the heat or little critters might get into things. I am going to try it this year. Also, I’m going to try your ornament storage system. Thank you again.

    1. So glad you found them helpful. Buying multiple tree bags was a holiday decorating game changer for us! I wish I had done it so much sooner. But they are more affordable now than they used to be so it was totally worth it. Good luck packing everything away!

  3. Such great storage ideas! I’m truly not as organized with my seasonal decor but you have inspired me. Thanks so much!

    1. Thanks Marty! I try and do whatever is easiest and most efficient and also helps me out for next year. Once I start pulling it down I just need it to be put up quickly!

  4. Love your home so elegant those pink bows are beautiful.
