We're guessing that when you're brainstorming storage and organization ideas, they tend to be more of the year-round variety — the holiday season probably isn't at the forefront of your mind, unless it's January 1 and you suddenly realize that you'll need to pack up your decorations soon. Although there are several aspects of seasonal storage that need to be tackled — ornaments, garlands, wreaths, and lights just to name a few — we'd like to also encourage you to consider Christmas tree storage.

You see, there are some big bonuses if you embrace Christmas tree storage. Instead of shoving it into a random corner in your basement, your tree will be beautifully protected and ready to make its grand debut next year. If you have a vintage tree, you can rest assured that it'll be safe and sound. And here's the best benefit of all: You can even leave some of the ornaments on it, which means less work for you next Christmas.

If we haven't sold you on the idea already, here are seven Christmas tree storage options for you to ponder. And guess what? They're bestsellers, too.
