Safe Storage of Holiday Decorations
As seasons change, so do the holidays we celebrate. Pumpkins and gourds make way for twinkle lights and snowmen, and the big question is: What is the best way to store this year's decorations so I am more organized next year? There is nothing more upsetting than pulling out Grandma's vintage tree-topper to find that it has succumb to dust and mold.
Often times, the only place to store holiday decorations is in the garage or attic, according to organizing expert, Barry Izsak, and author of Organize Your Garage in No Time. "The problem is that these storage locations leave your precious holiday decorations and family heirlooms vulnerable to excessive heat and moisture, as well as a cavalry of insects and rodents," he said.
