You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen.
Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen.
But do you recall… that Santa needs some storage for it all?
With the holiday season upon us, finding creative ways to stay organized through the craziness Christmas can bring is imperative to not only keep your sanity, but to keep the whole operation running smoothly.
These simple tips will help you do Christmas with ninja-like precision. You’ll be making meals, baking cakes, decorating and wrapping like the jolly little elf on a shelf you are, so sing that holiday tune and get your yule log ready, because we’re rocking around the Christmas tree in three, two, one…
Keep Presents Hidden Until Christmas Morning
Renting a self storage unit provides Santa with the opportunity to keep gifts away from prying eyes and little fingers, ensuring Christmas morning is filled with many heart-felt surprises.
By placing presents, wrapped, marked and labeled within neatly packed boxes, loading the gifts from the unit to the… uh, sleigh, will be as quick and simple as eating every last bite of those succulent cookies waiting by the tree. Cause let’s face it. That’s pretty darn easy.
Store Seasonal Decor And More
Listen, the North Pole isn’t decked out in decorations all year long. Mrs. Claus wouldn’t stand for it, and neither would the elves. They’re sick of it all by New Years.
In order to maximize space within your home for items you need all year round, consider keeping your Christmas decor in a self-storage unit nearby. With many different sizes designed to fit any budget, you’ll be able to find one that is perfectly suited for your specific needs.
You can even use your storage unit to keep other decor, landscaping items or sports equipment that is seasonal, and rotate them from your unit to your home (and back) as you need them.
Did you know Santa keeps his jet-skis in storage?
…And May All Your Christmases Be Bright
Ah, difficult family members. Gotta love them!
Have a mother-in-law who enjoys making comments about the cleanliness of your home, or an Aunt that “accidentally” goes through all of your stuff?
Mr. Claus too. They visit from the South Pole and just take everything over.
Now, we’re not going to tell you to keep them in your storage unit this Christmas (though it would make for a wonderful time of the year!), but rather, de-clutter and clear out by placing personal items or larger items away during your celebrations.
We all know this season can be hectic. Mrs. Claus told us exclusively that Santa can even turn into a real grump. But rather than become overwhelmed by the logistics of it all, take a moment to reflect on what really matters this season.
“Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we’re here for something else besides ourselves.” -Eric Sevareid
May your focus be on your faith, your family and your friends.
Many blessings to you and yours this holiday season and new year!
