Holiday Decorations: Packing & Storage

I recently posted a video on OLJ featuring how I pack up and store our holiday decorations.  I use holiday-themed storage bins by Sterlite that Target has in some variation every year.  I’ve had mine for over 5 years now and they’ve held up extremely well.  Sterilite makes the same size bins for their regular collection that’s available year-round.  I purchased the more shallow ones with the purple handles (32 quart Latching Box) for my Christmas collectibles last year well after Christmas.

I took some photos with my new camera during the process to share here with you. [portfolio_slideshow id=233]

  1. I love the way you do everything! I don’t really decorate at the moment, as our rental house have zero storage, I’ll keep this in mind for when we eventually have our own home though.

  2. Thank you for sharing! This is very helpful to see how you pack your Christmas items. I am going to definitely need more bins. I love the pictures. Take care! Hope your foot is doing better :).

  3. I love being organized because I’m the only one in our house of 4 adults and I’m always fighting to have order…

    Good luck on your race this weekend.. I can’t wait for videos.. Go Team Jen…

  4. Hi Jen,

    You seem to have the whole blog thing under your belt ! One more thing to bring joy and inspire all your followers 🙂
    Thank you for sticking around and being such a positive force in everybody’s lives. I trully enjoy all your content and it’s such a happy moment in my day to just kick back and watch your videos.
    I am also a great fan of Don 🙂 wish you two all the best – tons of health, happiness and good luck!
    keep up the good work and know we all cheer for you!

  5. Love the picture slideshow great job!! I had a thought of a blog post you could do.. At the end of the month you could recap the month. ( Like what you did,if you worked on any organizational projects..etc) Also the first part of the new month you could post a coordinating post about what your to-dos are for the current month.

  6. Having a storage room like yours would be a dream come true for me. I love having everything in order so I can find it faster when I’m looking for something.

  7. Hi, Jen! How are you? As you may know, I have been a *HUGE* fan of yours and have enjoyed watching your videos on YT for a long time. You really inspire me in so many ways, and YT is a wonderful way to share information from so many people all over the world. I truly appreciate you for doing videos. They bring a smile to my face! I watch your videos every night before I go to bed. When I saw/heard that you had a new blog I jumped for joy and screamed with excitement. I was super-duper excited, and I hope this is a way for us to become close internet friends. BTW, I pray for your social anxiety every night at bedtime. I’m there for you if you need support, because I imagine it is hard. You are a great person, and I feel like a actually know you through your videos. Anyway… got to go! Take care, and I hope you have a wonderful day!

    Thank you for being you, Jen!

    Sending blessings,


  8. Hey Jen! Re: pictures, 13,14,15, 16 – WHERE did you find those devided trays? They fit your Serilite boxes? These are what I need – but I’ve never seen them for sale anywhere . . .
    Thanks! Keep up with these, they are really helpful.
