This year as I unpacked our holiday decorations and ornaments, I realized that I had them all stored in random shoe boxes, bags and some of them just loose in my big "christmas" tote. (At least the tote was labeled, right?) So when I went to put everything away, I wanted to use a better solution. I went to the store looking for storage products specifically for ornaments; however, everyone else got to them before I did. With those being sold out, I literally roamed the aisles looking at products I could repurpose to store my holiday ornaments. I ended up with something that I already repurpose in another area of my house – a shoe organizer!
The pockets are a perfect size for ornaments, and I could actually fit more than one ornament in each pocket. For more fragile ones, I wrapped them with tissue paper. The organizer is made out of plastic, so that in itself creates a barrier between each pocket. I folded it in half along one of the seams and laid it right on top of everything inside my tote. Off it goes into the attic until next year!
How do you organize your ornaments?
