Decorating for Christmas is a lot more fun than taking down the tree, safely storing your ornaments and finding a place to put everything until next year. You’re on your own for un-decorating and finding closet space, but I can help you with some storage solutions.
Keeping lights untangled is always a challenge. You need something sturdy and durable.
Old picture frames are perfect because they don’t bend. Use the twist ties from trash bags to keep the plugs in place. Small frames will fit in recycled shirt boxes with sheets of tissue paper between each layer.
Ornaments are more fragile. Egg cartons or old ice cube trays are perfect for small balls.
For bigger ornaments make card stock dividers cut to fit shirt or sweater boxes.
Happy New Year!
