It’s that time of year again for the creepy and the spooky Halloween dress up, decorations and treats. But as much as fun as it may be, it’s an annual event so where do you store everything in between?
In an ideal world you’d have an extra room to store everything; however, it’s never quite that simple is it? The short answer to solving your problem is renting a storage unit. It’s one way to remove unnecessary clutter from your home and keep everything safe. In preparing for storage, here are some things that you can do, to make sure your Halloween decorations are safe and secure for the following year.
Clean decorations before storage whether its dust bunnies or insects taking refuge in outdoor decorations especially. Make sure everything is completely dry before storage as inflatables often collect moisture.
Pile together all your Halloween costumes, party goods, fragile and other decorations. Take a photo and refer to it when shopping for a storage container. Halloween costumes should be carefully prepped and cleaned before storage. Fabric costumes should be laundered and stored in soft linen like tissue paper.
Simplify your life with great storage ideas like a translucent box. Try getting one with a colourful lid and label it as well just in case. This way you won’t waste time looking for your decorations
Use newspaper, soft towels or bubble wrap when storing fragile goods. Pack your goods carefully and as compact as you can. You don’t want breakables to have too much wiggle room while transporting.
If you have multiple Halloween storage boxes, clearly label each one. For example – costumes, indoor decorations, outdoor decorations and fragile.
When you go Halloween shopping this year, think about hanging on to it for years to come. Not only will you save money, you’ll also save on space.
