I am a bit obsessed with organising everything and making sure that everything has a home and that is no different at Christmas. When PackMate asked us to review their Storeasy range of Christmas storage products I thought they’d be great to use after Christmas to make the festive organisation just that much easier.
We were sent three Storeasy products – Wrapping Paper Storage Case, Baubles Ornament Organiser Box and a Light Storage Reel Set. All three came well packaged in cellophane sleeves and showed how small they all folded for easy storage.
The Storeasy Wrapping Paper Storage Case folds out into one big tube that could hold a large number of wrapping paper rolls. It’s longer than a standard roll of wrap and so would have room for tags, bows etc too. The case has a seethrough section that is great for seeing exactly what you have inside as well as a carry handle on the top. The only downside to this is that it did feel quite flimsy and one part of the stitching had come undone on the zip at the top. Apart from this though it is a great idea for a product especially as I buy all our wrapping paper in the January sale – this would keep it all stored safely until the following Christmas.
The Storeasy Ornament Organiser Box didn’t come with any instructions but was straight forward to put together using interlocking cardboard sections to create two layers of boxes to put all your Christmas decorations in. This is a really durable and solid storage box that would be great for putting baubles, tinsel and any other Christmas bits and pieces in. There’s a window on each side to easily see the contents and handles on each end of the box for transporting easily. The lid fits snugly and I can see this being a really useful addition to our Christmas preparations for years to come – I’m looking forward to filling it up once our Christmas tree comes down!
Finally, the Storeasy Light Storage Reel Set is such an innovative product. I remember Christmases as a child where we would spend hours untangling lights before we could put them on the tree and have had very similar experiences myself. Fortunately we now have a pre-lit tree so don’t have this problem but we have a couple of sets of window lights that I was dreading having to store – the Light Storage Reel Set solves the problem!
The Light Storage Reel Set contains two reels that are simple to put together- full instructions are provided. You can then wrap lights around the reel which turns as you wrap or unwrap the lights. Both reels fit nicely inside the storage bag which is well made and easy to zip up. It also has a carry handle to make transporting it easier.
Overall the Storeasy Christmas storage products are really versatile, well made and something that every festive home should have. I am now well prepared for taking the Christmas tree and decorations down and will find setting up for Christmas much easier next year.
