Tips for putting up, taking down and storing tree lights. Post your ideas.
Instead of fighting with strands of Christmas lights to put on your tree, try taking the ones that you buy to put on your outside bushes that are already in one bundle and just throw them over the top of the tree and your done with your lights.No more having to wrap around the tree.

I USE AN EMPTY PRINGLES CAN TO WRAP MY LIGHTS.AND THOSE LOOSE BULBS & FUSES GO INSIDE .NO MORE LOST BULBS OR TANGLED LIGHTS.
This sounds kinda messy....
A tip I saw on a craft show was to take the cardboard paper tube and cut a slit in each end (not too long, about an inch). Slide the outlet end into the cut and then start wrapping the lights around the outside of the tube - when you get to the end place the end of the lights into the other slit. It works GREAT! The lights can be stored in one of the new plastic bins they have for wrapping paper and can easily be tested next year.
