As 2017 unfolds, more and more unconventional Filipino individuals and families are preferring to live in compact spaces such as condominiums. As a result, the popularity of condos for sale in McKinley Hill and all over Taguig is surging up.
The reason for this trend is pretty simple: condominiums are almost always established in strategic locations that allow residents access to the most important necessities and more. For example, you’ll probably see that plenty of condo buildings are located near malls, restaurants, and train stations. Filipinos love this setup because it grants them the opportunity to easily access important facilities within and around their building while living in comfortable yet stylish condo units.
Plenty of people have taken advantage of the benefits that living in a condo are offering already. These individuals made a home out of their units, integrating their own styles and characters in the design of their homes. Most of them probably even decked their halls with Christmas decorations or hosted New Year’s eve parties in their new condo units. However, now that the holiday season is officially over, it’s time to start packing those ornaments away.
Packing up decorations can be incredibly taxing especially if you have plenty of them. However, you shouldn’t worry because there are ways to make this arduous task as painless as possible. Here are the six ways to store Christmas decorations away and restore order in your newly bought condo unit:
Use the Original Packaging
Did you keep the original packaging of your ornaments? You will find them useful right now since they are your cheapest and most ideal option.

Usually, wreaths come in specific shapes and sizes and this makes it difficult to just place them in your storage room without damaging the ornaments in the process. To avoid this, get a sturdy cardboard box – like the ones they use to ship equipment – and place use this to store your wreaths. This will definitely protect them from getting torn or damaged in any way.
Get Some Hinged Boxes
Mantelpiece décor, ribbons, and ornament hangers are lovely decorations. Unfortunately, they are small enough that it is very easy to lose them.

This way, you can keep the ornaments in good condition so that they are ready several months from now.
Utilize Archival Storage Boxes
Archival storage boxes are pretty useful when storing precious ornaments such as antiques which have been passed on to you by the older generations in your family. Secure them by placing these decorations in boxes that have UV protection (to keep their color from fading) and acid-free dividers. You can easily get these boxes from mass retailers and home stores in your area.
Store Similar Ornaments/Decorations Together
Storing similar decorations and ornaments together will save you time especially if you decide to use them again next Christmas. Follow a system wherein you pack ornaments with similar colors or shapes to keep your things organized. Just be sure to line their compartments with paper towels that will keep them looking shiny and new.
