We linked to an article in Post-holiday cleanup, part 1, which described ways to dispose of a real Christmas tree. Storing an artificial tree, however, can be a task that worries even the most uncluttered of us.
In my home, we collapse the tree and keep it in its original packaging when not in use. If you didn’t hold onto your original box, or if it’s impossible to fit the tree back inside of it once it has been used, here are some storage alternatives:
- Artificial Tree Storage Bag — With a reasonable price tag, this appears to be a cost effective option with the benefit of having a handle for transporting the tree in and out of storage.
- Artificial Christmas Tree Box — This option is more expensive, but because it is flat you can stack things on top of the box the other 11 months out of the year
- If you aren’t seeking something aesthetically pleasing, large leaf and lawn bags could work nicely.
