ezStorage Storing Holiday Decorations
Every home can have a variety of holiday decorations from menorahs to Christmas trees to blow-up outdoor decorations.  All of our decorations are special to us and need to be treated with extra care when storing.

Based on a 2015 Unity Marketing survey, 56% of people surveyed are likely to purchase new decorations to enhance holiday celebrations, compared to 45% who said they will not purchase new decorations this year.  Of those surveyed 29% will purchase outdoor holiday decoration while 46% will buy indoor holiday decorations.

That same survey showed that 80% of U.S. Households decorate their homes for Christmas, Hanukkah or other winter holidays. Between festive lights, ornaments, wreaths and Christmas trees, holiday decorations can take up a lot of storage space in a home.  It is important to have a plan in mind for holiday decoration storage either at home or by placing them in a self storage unit.

By using some simple DIY storage and packing tips, holiday decoration storage can be much easier, so the lights, candles, ornaments, artificial Christmas trees, and outdoor decorations can be used for many years to come. ezStorage has created “How to Store Holiday Decorations”, an easy-to-follow guide to help you with properly storing Christmas decorations.
