Self Storage

December 11th, 2021

The holidays are always a busy time of year for homeowners and business owners alike, giving you many reasons for having lots of headaches. In many cases, new holiday storage needs arise when you randomly run out of space or suddenly need to prepare for out-of-town guests.

If you need a quick solution, our storage experts are here to give you a crash course on all our best holiday storage tips for this holiday season.


A common complaint we hear from new tenants this time of year is that their relatives are coming in and taking over their homes for the holidays. While you may do everything you can to be welcoming, you really don’t need right any more stress right now.

Since your relatives will likely be staying in your guest room, crashing on your couch, or bunking with the kids in their bedrooms, now is a critical time to clear some space before you go crazy. All the items that have piled up over quarantine need a new home!

If this scenario sounds like what you’re going through, renting a storage unit is a great temporary (or even long-term) answer to your clutter crisis.


Fall is almost over, and summer is long gone. Do you still have seasonal décor, sporting equipment, and summer clothing lying around your home or office? Renting a storage unit is the perfect way to clear out all that seasonal clutter.

Head’s up: You’re also about to get a bunch of holiday gifts that will just add to the chaos. You might even decide to rack up on more holiday decorations from post-Christmas clearance sales. Where is all that stuff going to go?

Save yourself some stress and store away the items you don’t need day-to-day!


Christmas trees take up a surprising amount of space when you live in a home or office that wasn’t blessed with an attic. A storage unit can provide the perfect solution to keep all your holiday decorations from piling up in corners, closets, or spare bedrooms.

Even something as small as a 5x10 storage unit could be the critical solution you need for holiday storage. It’s about the size of a walk-in closet, which could easily fit your tree, ornaments, lights, wrapping supplies, and more.

Go ahead and reserve your storage unit now so you don’t forget in the hustle and bustle of all your holiday plans!

Holiday Storage Tips

Once the holidays wrap up, your next order of business is safely securing your items until next year. Thankfully, the experts here at Modern Storage® have a few packing tips for you:
  • Beverage trays or egg cartons are excellent options for keeping Christmas ornaments safe and organized.
  • Christmas lights store best when wrapped around something solid, such as a piece of wood or even your old wrapping paper tubes if you want to get resourceful! This will help prevent wire shortages and extend the lifetime of your lights.
  • Stash your holiday decorations in plastic bins that are less prone to caving than cardboard. You can even use clear bins so you can see what you’re working with next year!
