Rule #1: If you’re putting away cloth – such as tablecloths and napkins, towels or rugs don’t place them in a cardboard box. If you usually store your seasonal decorations in your attic and there’s a leak, these items will get damaged by the wetness. You could end up with a box full of mildewed linens that have to be tossed into the garbage. Instead of cardboard boxes, store these materials in an airtight plastic container with a tight snap on lid.
Rule #2: If you’re saving your Christmas wreaths, buy the [amazon_link id="B002JW6D8U" target="_blank" container="" container_class="" ]Christmas wreath storage containers [/amazon_link]that are specifically made for wreaths. It keeps them nice and safe.
Rule #3: Christmas wrapping paper will do well in the tube containers made especially for this purpose. It’ll keep the paper from unraveling and the ends from splitting and tearing.

Rule #4: Before packing away the Christmas lights, always check each strand to make sure all the bulbs light up. Then wrap the lights in strands, secure them in place with twist ties and store the lights in small plastic containers that you can place down inside larger containers.
