Still trying to come up with a foolproof way to store those fragile Christmas ornaments? Try using egg cartons. The larger-count cartons (18 or more) should work best, but it shouldn't matter whether you use paper or styrofoam. Pad each section with a little shredded or crumpled paper if you feel you need more padding. Smaller bulbs might fit two or three per section, extra padding included. It's entirely up to you whether to leave the hangers on or not. I'd leave them on, which would make them easier to find next season. You'll still want to handle them carefully, but the egg cartons should stack easily into whatever larger container you use. We always reused cardboard boxes, but reusable plastic totes might work better for you.
