Christmas Tree Storage Habits


I have never given much thought to Christmas tree storage before last year. I have alternated over the years between real and artificial trees. My first husband was allergic to real trees, so we always had artificial.

My first Christmas on my own, I bought an extremely inexpensive Christmas tree to decorate. I had a lot of fun putting icicles all over the tree and making it be exactly what I wanted it to be. That year Christmas tree storage consisted of putting it back into its box.

My father decided that he wanted a pre-lit artificial tree and gave me and my husband the one he had been using previously. This was a good quality artificial, one that would have been far out of my price range had it been new. We used that tree every year following until our divorce. He kept the tree and used the gigantic box it came in as Christmas tree storage.

I did not have a need for Christmas tree storage for the next several years. I used real trees for decorating and did not save the tree until the next year. I liked the smell of the real trees and thought that I would always use them. My second husband and I would get the largest tree that would fit in our home and decorate it together.

My third husband doesnít really get into the Christmas spirit at all. He refuses to decorate and I think that if I tried to discuss my Christmas tree storage needs with him, he would laugh. Iím also pretty sure he would say no to the purchase. This would be categorized as silly and unneeded.

I think that I could use a better plan for Christmas tree storage. Last year, when I opened the box that my tree was stored in, there were



cobwebs inside. I never found a spider, but it made me realize that there had to be a better way.

Iíve never noticed artificial Christmas tree storage bags before. I guess that I was never looking. I have found them priced as low as nine dollars for the size tree that I use now. I think I may just buy one and just start using it. They look perfect for protecting my artificial tree from bugs and dust.
