Ornament organization

Some ornaments hold a special place in your heart, so it’s best to give them their own special place in your home, too. The homemade ornament grandma gave you on your first birthday? Nestle it in leftover bits of tissue paper, (extra green points for recycling!), then place it in a Ziploc® brand slider bag and label with the ornament name. You’ll never misplace it again.

For bulky items like tree skirts, stockings, and winter blankets, a Ziploc® brand Big Bag is the perfect storage solution. The bags are durable and keep dust out, plus the see-through plastic makes it so much easier to find what you need. Label the bags with a permanent marker so everything can be returned to its proper place year after year.

Spare yourself with these clever tips for storing all those long, tangle-prone items: Wrap, pull, tie, and test!
