Simply Contained: Halloween

Nov 6

Halloween 2013. Hard to believe it has come and gone. The memories have been made and now it’s time to pack up those decorations for next year. No surprise that when it comes to organizing and packing away decorations in my house, I keep it simple and easy.

First thing is to gather up everything Halloween (or whatever holiday I’m packing away) into one area…

This is a good time to pick out items you’d like to donate, fix items that need repair or lights that need replacing. Once I have the keeps huddled together, they’re stored away in clear containers. I love clear containers because it makes everything easy to see. That also means you don’t need fancy labels.

Another tip is that I buy containers with a color-coded lid. For example, for Halloween my bins have a purple handle….

For fragile items, I wrap them with leftover wrapping or tissue paper from that holiday…

For smaller items, like ground stakes, I use clear zippered bags…

Oh yea, check this out…

You can’t mistake what’s inside when they are see-through. Finally, the bins are stored away together until next year…

Halloween. Contained.

Time to get out those Thanksgiving bins!

Have a great day!

    May I ask where you purchased your containers? I have smaller ones with that type of handle but would like to convert my large blue Rubbermaid ones to clear for my holiday storage. Clear is such a great idea!
