Get rid of excess Halloween decorations

Every year you have to spend time carving a pumpkin because they are disposable. Since they are perishable you cannot store them for next year. Also, there are decorations such as fake spider webs, which are damaged over time. So before packing decorations, pick out the ones that are damaged or that you don’t like anymore and throw them away. Because some things you don’t need to keep until next year. That way, it won’t take up unnecessary space for things you won’t use anymore. This will make it easier for you to pack and store Halloween decorations.

Pack the decorations in plastic boxes

Storing Halloween decorations is not always easy. You need the right conditions because not all decorations are equally durable. If you want your decorations to survive until the next holiday, it would be good to pack them in plastic boxes. In addition to being practical, plastic boxes are also a safer choice for storing.

So your decoration will be protected from moisture and mold. However, the use of plastic boxes will provide you with extra security when it comes to storing your belongings.

Choose transparent boxes or in specific colors for storing Halloween decorations

You can do the same with other decorations for other holidays – for Christmas, you pack in red, for Thanksgiving in green boxes, etc.

Mark each box with Halloween decorations

After packing the Halloween decoration in boxes, it would be good to mark each box by writing what is in it – for example, a decoration for the living room. You should also make a list of items in the box. This way you will easily manage if for some reason you need something out of the box, before Halloween.
