hi guys, it’s alejandra. and this video iscoming to you guys a little bit early. i know it’s like three days before christmas buti wanted to share with you guys two quick and easy and cost-effective tips for how tostore all of your christmas ornaments during the year so there is no damage, nothing brokenand nothing gets destroyed while it’s in the storage and everything is intact for the followingholiday season. so, most people don’t take down their christmasdecorations until like maybe january. i usually take them down first week in january becausei’m done with christmas and i’ve seen them for like a month and a half now and it’s justtime to start the new year, start fresh, and get the house back to normal.
so with that said, there are two things i’mgoing to share with you guys today. and the first thing is i want to tell you guys howto store your large bulb ornaments without having to go out and buy an ornament organizer.and to be completely honest, like you don’t need to buy an ornament organizer. you cantotally make one yourself or figure out how to reuse something so you can just save somemoney. so what i do for these ornaments is i usean apple container from costco. so this is just like a container that apples come inwhen you buy them at costco. it stores 12 apples and it like clicks shut just like that.and i just put all the large ornaments inside of one of the holes just like that and itfits perfectly like it’s the same size as
an apple. it’s a little bit smaller. and istore the hook with the ornament. if the hook doesn’t fit because maybe it’s like a littlebulky or it sticks out or something, i’ll just take the hook off and put it inside ofa little ziploc bag and then keep it inside of here. but the hook fits fine in here. so i’ll put the ornament in and i’ll store12 in here and then i’ll just click them shut and i’ll just store this apple cartoon with12 ornaments inside of a storage box or a moving box or whatever bin or basket i have.and then i’ll just put it wherever i store all of my holiday decorations. ok. so i use an apple cartoon for large ornamentsand then i use a – well first, let me show
you what it is. so a lot of people have smallornaments like this. i have a lot of them in my tree. i use like – i could use the applecartoon container to store these small ones inside of here but i think it will just wastea lot of space. and when it comes to organizing, you want to maximize your space and not wasteany space at all. so the apple cartoon container is a wasteof space for these small ones. instead, i like to use an egg cartoon just like thislike what you get at a grocery store. and again, they fit really perfectly inside. doyou see that? and some of the hooks kind of stick up inside of here, i don’t know. i thinkit’s fine leaving them on though. and then i’ll just close it and all of your small ornamentsare now inside of an egg cartoon.
so again, you don’t have to run to the storeand spend more money after you already spent so much money during christmas just by – instead,you can just reuse two things that most people would just recycle or throw away, which isan apple cartoon container and an egg cartoon container, so, that’s just two things to consider whenyou are taking down all your christmas decorations in the next few weeks. i hope you guys arehaving a merry christmas and i will see you soon. bye!2
