Don’t Get Your Tinsel in a Tangle

The presents have been put away and the leftovers are almost gone, but your decorations are still up! Before you know it, spring will be knocking at your door and your wreath will still be hanging there.

 

With a ton of organization options, Homz® can help you put a wrap on your seasonal items to make decorating next year a breeze. Check out our favorite picks for holiday storage and start un-decking your halls!

 

Holiday Lights

Lights look especially nice around your tree and on the roof, but aren’t so appealing in a tangled pile after they’re taken down. Avoid the complicated mess and make cleanup easier with the Homz® Snaplock Light Wrap Box. With the ability to store up to 120 feet of string lights, holiday organization has never been neater.

 

 

HOMZ® PRO TIP: Let labels become your personal elves during the holidays. Mark which lights are for outdoor use and which go inside so you don’t mix them up next year.

 

Wreaths

It’s a holiday miracle if your wreaths don’t get crushed or ragged while in storage. Keep them looking like new with the Homz® Holiday Wreath Storage Box. Order more than one for every season. The clear lids make for easy viewing so you’ll never mistake the wrong wreath when changing them out for a new one.

HOMZ® PRO TIP: Dress your entry way all year and purchase post-season wreaths at a discount. Now that you have a great idea on how to store your wreaths, craft some fun ones for Spring, Summer, and Fall!

 

Wrapping Paper

Keep holiday wrapping paper from taking over your closet this season with the Homz® Wrapping Paper Storage. The container can hold up to 20 rolls of paper and the portable caddy on top to keep accessories is sure to impress even the hardcore gift wrapper!

HOMZ® PRO TIP: To take your paper storage to the next level, try using a rubber band around the tubes to keep the edges from wrinkling and ripping.

 

Ornaments

The Homz® Ornament Storage protects even the most delicate ornaments from breaking. Interlocking dividers will keep everything separated and organized in the clear container so you can see all of your favorites.

HOMZ® PRO TIP: To assure any packing issues be sure to store the larger or heavier ornaments on the bottom and the lighter more delicate ones on top.

 

Christmas Tree

Keep your tree looking new every year with the Homz® Soft Artificial Christmas Tree Storage Bag. Packing up is a breeze with the easy-to-carry handle, taking away any excuse to keep your tree up through January. Plus, the durable material shields it from moisture and dust keeping it in great condition year after year.

HOMZ® PRO TIP: Take pictures of your decorated house and store the prints with decorations so you can recreate the look next season.

 

Odds and Ends

You’ll never mistake any of your holiday decorations for regular attic storage items ever again with the unmistakable green and red Homz® Holiday Storage Totes. From stockings and garland to tree skirts and Santa hats, the durable boxes will store all your seasonal goods and keep them lasting for years to come.

HOMZ® PRO TIP: Don’t lose anyone’s holiday treasures this year! Stuff all personal favorites into everyone’s own stocking to keep track of everything and make next year’s decorating drama-free.

How to Organize the Crazy Coat Closet

You may not realize, but your coat closet is one of the most important places in your house when the temperatures start to drop outside. It holds everything you need to brave the weather. It’s easy to forget about keeping the closet tidy until you have guests and you’re forced to open it in front of them! Keep reading for some tips to keep your entryway ready for anything, and say goodbye to the clutter shame with Homz®!

 

  1. Hang it All Up

Coats and jackets are cold weather must-haves, so treat them like it. Use sturdy Homz® Tubular Plastic Hangers to keep outerwear in order and off the floor. Hooks can provide a place to hang more coats or backpacks and purses without taking away valuable floor space. Even with a small closet, the possibilities are endless when you use every inch of space.

HOMZ® PRO TIP: Take your organization a step further by installing a rod low enough for your kiddos to hang up their own coats, giving them independence (and one less pile of coats on the floor.)

 

  1.    When in Doubt, Sort it Out

Gloves, hats and scarves seem to multiply each year, so put them in their place with the Homz® Clear Storage Totes. Designate each tote to one seasonal accessory or give each family member their own to contain it all.

HOMZ® PRO TIP: Personalize your closet by taking pictures of family members and putting the prints on the front of the totes so everyone knows where to put their stuff!

 

  1.     To save even more floor space, use the Homz® Over the Door Organizer.

Not just for shoes! Utilize door space for personal accessories like hats, gloves or scarves. You can assign each member of the family their own space so they’ll know where to put their items each day to keep it tidy!

24-Pocket Hanging Shoe Organizer

  1.     Give Clutter the Boot

Dropping temperatures bring snow and rain, which your family is trekking into the house. Grab a tough doormat for the bottom of the coat closet to make a place for boots to dry without leaving puddles in the foyer.

Rope Handle Tub - 17 Gallon
HOMZ® PRO TIP: Get cozy with a Homz® Plastic Utility Tub full of extra socks and/or slippers in the closet. That way when you change out of your cold damp boots you can warm your feet up instantly!

 

Before you start your closet makeover, donate any unwanted items or throw away any ill-fitting clothing and accessories. This will make organizing much easier! Check back for even more organization inspiration next month.

Prep the Playroom – Pre-Holiday Organization

You’ve heard of spring cleaning, but what about pre-holiday organization? Your kids already have too many toys and they are about to get even more. This time of year is notorious for bringing insanity and clutter. Get ahead of the seasonal mess, check out these Homz-approved tips and tricks to prep the playroom!

But before you start the organization, get ready to purge. Go through everything in the playroom and decide which toys your family will keep, throw out or give away. By getting rid of trash and donations, there will be a lot less to handle when you bring out the bins to start sorting. And after clearing out the junk, vacuum and wipe everything from floor to ceiling and make the room feel fresh.

Rope Handle Tub - 17 GallonThree Tier Mobile Cart

  1. Stuffed Animals
    Somehow, stuffed toys seem to multiply by themselves. Grab a Rope Handle Tub and contain the craziness before your house becomes a zoo.
  2. Favorite Toys
    With multiple kids, it’s hard for everyone to have their own space. Put a 3-Drawer Medium Cart in the playroom and assign each kiddo a drawer for their favorite toys and supplies. You can also use this idea to teach your little ones how to keep their own space clean and organized.
  3. LEGOs and Barbies
    There is nothing worse than stepping on a LEGO or Barbie shoe (especially after you thought you picked them all up)! Avoid the pain with Clear Totes to sort and store every piece while saving floor space. Plus, the handles on these totes make it easy to transport toys to another room in the house!
  4. Dress Up Clothes
    Keeping dress up clothes in a bin is a recipe for disaster – the little ones will just take everything out to find the dress they really want! To make the next fashion show run smoothly and save floor space, store outfits, accessories and shoes in a 3 Drawer Mobile Cart.
  5. Puzzles and Games
    Puzzles and games can easily get out of control and the different sized boxes are impossible to keep orderly. With Underbed Wood Storage, you can stash everything away. And a fun, chalkboard label front lets you see what’s inside without pulling it out.
  6. Everything Else!
    Take the guesswork out of cleanup time and use clear storage. The increased visibility of Plastic Storage Boxes allows your kiddos see where toys should go and to find them easily when it’s time to play again.

Small tasks, like choosing the right storage containers, can help ensure you have more fun (and less stress!) each holiday. And check back with Homz for post-holiday organization ideas.
