How (And Why You Need) to Put Those Decorations Away

After every holiday, there comes a time when you have to buckle down, take your well-placed decorations, and put them away until next year. Though this can be a bit of a hassle, it is a necessary step to prepare your home for the coming months. Continue reading for some tips on how you can tackle the task of putting away your holiday decorations—and reap some fresh organizational benefits from the work, too!

Storing Your Decorations

When you live in one of our Southern California communities, you’ll find that the homes offer a wealth of storage space for everything from holiday decorations and seasonal clothes, to sporting equipment and beyond. Several floorplans, like the ones at Saffron in Yorba Linda, include two-car garages, roomy closets, and bonus rooms that you can use to store your seasonal decorations. Pro-Tip: Label storage boxes, so you can easily find what you need for your next decorating endeavor.

Make Your Home Feel Fresh

Cleaning up after the holidays can seem like a menial task, and of course, we’d all rather be doing something else. To avoid feeling crowded and stressed in a place that’s supposed to be your sanctuary, try tackling your big cleanup one room at a time. This way, you can enjoy a sense of accomplishment as you restore order to each room. Pro-Tip: Turn on your favorite tunes as you clean to help set a pace, and before you know it, the task will be over, and you and your Shea home will be ready for the next big occasion.

Get Ready for a New Adventure

If you’re hesitant about storing your decorations, you’re not alone. It’s tough to say goodbye (for now) to your favorite time of the year. The key to getting yourself psyched about putting things up is to not look to the past, but rather to the future. Once you start thinking about all the upcoming celebrations that require your keen decorating eye, you’ll be more motivated to leave the past behind and get ready for new adventures, whether it’s Valentine’s, a birthday, or simply because you want a new look! Pro-Tip: Once holiday decorations are put away, reward yourself with a trip to your favorite shop for some new home decor, such as a few throw pillows, a pretty plant, or an object of art.
