Where to store the artificial Christmas tree?
We use an artificial Christmas tree. We don't have much of a basement, and it's smelly. We don't have a garage. We do have an attic, but the temperatures up there get up into the hell-fire range in the summers.
We've been keeping our big artificial tree in a big box under a long table in our library/computer/junk room. I would love to clean up and simplify this room. What to do with the tree??? Have any of you kept your trees in your attic? I would be afraid, if we kept it there, it would just be a big blog of melted green by next Christmas. Any creative ideas on how and where to store this thing? I suppose we could divide up the tree into 10 boxes, and put them all in a different room........ not really. Any better ideas? Thanks!
P.S. Believe it or not.....a builder once told me that he built a house for a woman who requested a big closet be built in her living room, so she could just scoot her christmas tree (totally decorated) in and out of that closet!
