If you have oddly shaped, oversized or custom made ornaments there's a good chance that when it comes time to store them you are going to have to brainstorm a way to protect them. This is a nifty organizer that can be used for small, large or oddly sized ornaments or decorations. These can be hard to find outside of the Christmas season so if you come across these while shopping and like the size and composition of them, get them while you can. The plastic is thick and sturdy so you can stack these two or three high and because the body of it is clear you can see the contents of the containers without having to open them. You may need to pick up the box and turn it around a few times to see the contents if the ornaments are oversized but that's still better than having to unpack the trays to look for a specific piece. In addition to protecting the ornaments it keeps them from getting dusty or dirty but it won't protect them from oxidation so if you have older blown-glass ornaments you are going to want to wrap those in archival safe, acid-free tissue paper to protect them. I have a couple of these; the first one I bought was for Christmas ornaments and then I liked it so much I got one for the small and delicate Halloween ornaments and decorations that I have collected over the years. If you are storing really small items you can wrap them in tissue paper or bubble wrap and put three or for of them in each pod.
