When do you take your Christmas tree down? We're planning on tackling this task next weekend. To make things easier this year, we're using Rubbermaid Christmas Storage. Rubbermaid sent me an assortment of storage options. For large balls and bulbs, I'm using the 10" Rubbermaid storage box ($7 at Walmart). When it comes time to store the bulk of my ornaments, I'm going to use the Latchtopper ($19.95)--it holds about 45 ornaments and has cardboard dividers inside.
I'm scrapping the usual storage method--a large Rubbermaid tub with all the small ornaments loaded in after I wrap them in tissue and bubble wrap. These storage options are much smarter--I save time from wrapping each ornament and money since I won't have a high breakage rate. Savor the last few days of having the tree up and then have an organized plan of attack. It's a perfect time to find bargains on Christmas storage solutions. If you've got an enormous tree you might go for the 60 qt. Ornament Box with Dividers($99.95). Since the average consumer spends $187 towards holiday decorations and other non-gift items, it makes sense to protect this investment and the memories.
