The holiday season is almost upon us, and that means all the holiday décor is going up around our houses, in our yards, along city streets, and all through local retail stores. Americans are spending billions on Christmas decorations alone this year, not to mention decorations for other winter holidays such as Hanukkah, Solstice, Kwanza, New Year's Eve, and so on.
We love decorating for the holidays. The decorations all look great while they're up, and they add to the holiday cheer. But they also have to come down sometime. When they do, they shouldn't just be crammed into a box and stuffed in the attic. Fortunately, self storage in Joplin, Pittsburg or Frontenac is the solution.
Most of us probably don't even know how much holiday décor we actually have around the house. It may be spread from the basement to the attic, stored in closets and cupboards, stashed under beds, and hidden away all over the place. Here's just a smattering of what the average homeowner keeps on hand in Christmas décor alone:
- Bows or decorations for the trees or mailbox
- Boxes and boxes of ornaments
- Christmas artwork and figurines
- Extension cords
- Fake poinsettias and artificial garlands for the mantel and staircase banisters
- Holiday bedding
- Holiday dishware, serving platters, and dishtowels
- Holiday flags
- Lawn figures such as Santa in his sleigh
- Multiple strings of holiday lights
- Nativity scenes, nutcrackers, stockings, and stocking hooks
- Outdoor wreath for the front door
- Pre-lit artificial Christmas tree – or maybe more than one!
- Seasonal table linens (tablecloths, table runners, napkins, and placemats)
- So many holiday candles!
- Throw pillows
- Tree skirt and tree stand
And that's just for Christmas! Many of us also have boxes of décor for Halloween, the 4th of July, Thanksgiving, New Year's, Valentine's Day, Easter, and more! Once you start tallying up all the boxes of holiday stuff you have on hand, you'll quickly see how self storage for holiday décor can give you back a lot of space in your house.
Homeowners aren't the only ones who need to store decorations. Churches, office buildings, retail stores, HOAs, and other organizations also have a lot of decorations—many of them very large—that can find a safe, out-of-the-way home at self storage in Joplin, Pittsburg or Frontenac.
Putting all of those holiday decorations into climate-controlled self storage is about more than just getting them out of your hair, though. It's also about keeping them safe. Lights can become tangled. Lighted trees can break or bend. Wreaths and garlands can lose those little red berries. Inflatable lawn décor can be pierced or torn.
When you're lumping your holiday decorations in with all your other stuff, you're moving them out of the way to get things you need or stacking things on top of them that probably shouldn't go there. After putting so much time and money into your holiday decorations, why risk damaging them? With climate-controlled self storage, your decorations are protected, and they'll be ready to go when you need them next year.
