5 Tips to Cut Down on Christmas Clutter

Christmas is only a few weeks away, which means during the next few days your time will be spent decorating your home. In order to make sure your home looks festive yet tidy, have a read through our tips.


This may sound obvious, but by cleaning each room and removing items from shelves, you have more room to put up decorations. Once you have taken items down, place them all in boxes and store in a storage unit to prevent moving the clutter into another room.

Start small

Focus on decorating and cleaning one room at a time. Start with the family room where you spend most of your time, then move on to another room. A great first step is to throw away old coupons, newspapers and other items that you no longer need.


Presents take over the house during Christmas. If you have children, your job is to hide their presents in a place they can’t reach or find! If these presents are small, then the top of the wardrobe will suffice. However, if you have bought larger items such as a bicycle, dolls house etc. then a storage unit will keep the gifts well hidden, safe and secure!


Instead of purchasing lots of Christmas cards and spending countless hours writing each one individually, go digital. This will not only save you time, but you may inspire others to do the same! If you receive lots of Christmas cards, why not digitalise the collection? You can then display all your cards in a more compact and less untidy way.

Storage unit

A storage unit is a lifesaver through the party months. If you are hosting a party, you will want as much free space as possible, which means you have to move items from your home to a safe place. Storage units are not only secure, but you are able to access the unit 24/7, which allows you to pick up items at your convenience.
