You've packed your holiday away into containers. Now what? "Try to sort decorations into a few categories, like indoor and outdoor so that you can decorate an area at a time without having to empty all your boxes at once," advises Schneider.
Then, anchor this system to your garage or attic rafters and stow your seasonal items here so you won't be tripping over them to get to your floaties and boogie boards in the summer. The sturdy lift features heavy-duty steel support beams and can hold up to 250 pounds worth of stuff. Hand-crank operation allows you to bring the shelf down to you for packing, then return it to it's overhead—and out-of-the-way—position.
