Total newb question, but is there some strategy I should be using with the decorations I get from the small crates to maximise my rewards? I really need the crew.

I whack the best set on everywhere, then take off all the 3s and below and break them to create random 5s. Eventually you can start taking off your 4s. And then start being more specific with your crafting.

Pretty much this ^.  This provides the earliest benefits for the bonuses you earn when playing,

Thanks. I think I've got it. Already got two well educated Swedish girls in my OP tier 3 TD now, glad don't have to grind for sixth sense any more and can now insert inappropriate jokes about camping bush.

I will keep all my deco till later part of the month. No point generating low tier deco because I will get them sooner or later in the missions. I am keeping them to generate tier 4 or 5 deco.

Actually there's no point in saving them, because once you have them they're permanently recorded in your collection. You don't need to "own" a full set, you just need to "OPEN" a full set.

 

So by smashing stuff right away you can start getting lvl 5 decos earlier.

I know don't have to keep them. Just don't want to generate missing deco too early which I might get later from the missions.

I'm just smashing as soon as I get enough for a random level five. Get so few in missions I'm not that worried about duplicates at this stage.

 

Later I'll look at focusing on Lunar New Year's because I want cat decals for my M18 Hello Kitty.

Oh sure, but as long as you're popping out pure random T5s, you're not really any worse off. You're still getting random lvl 5s either way.

 

You only want to be selective once you get to 50% of the lvl 5 deco collection being finished. Up until that point it'll be better than a coin toss that you'll get something you don't have, whether it's from crafting or boxes. Past that point, yes, it will be optimal to possibly sit on decos to see what you get and then be more selective in your crafting depending on what you need.

By the way, if anyone is interested... 

 

If you're trying to craft your way to a set, the halfway point is your 37th lvl 5 deco, as there are 73 lvl 5 decos in total. So up to that 37th, you're better off just paying 480 shards for a random T5, but after that you're better off being more specific. At that point you'll want to look for the specific category (be it a nation, or particular deco type), with the highest number of those remaining 36 lvl 5 decos missing, and then hit for as many random ones of those as you can. As you get more specific individual strategies will depend on what you have, but as always, the first decoration past the halfway point is where it's more worth it to add a specifier than not.

Back onto this. I've got my four girls, now I want to complete an album. Should I be smashing and crafting everytime I get a decent pile of boxes or is there a benefit to holding onto everything till the end?

The boost each collection gives is dependant on how many you have. So to get 50% extra credits you need level 10 and 60 lunar (iirc) decorations registered, so you should try and fill them up until you have max bonus as soon as possible.

My strategy was to get to level 10 rewards, then go up the coast for 3 weeks.

Get smashing. But choose your Decorider settings wisely; it has biases to tree decoration so you'd have to pay double in case you want sculpture or ovens.
