Prepare Christmas Lights For Next Year

Get ready for next Christmas while you pack away the decorations this year. Start with your Christmas tree lights, replace non-working bulbs. Wrap strands in a loop, sort of like wrapping up the garden hose, and rubberband each strand. Folded net lights should be loosely stored in paper boxes. Write out box contents using leftover self-adhesive gift tags. The tags are easy to spot in dim basements. Next Christmas won't have you, "bah, humbuging" as you unpack your lights.

AND....remember that those slightly dented LARGE

metal CHRISTMAS POPCORN CANS can protect those

lights better than ANYTHING!!! THEN next year, you KNOW that it's got CHRISTMAS stuff in it! Merry

Messiahmas for next year in advance. God bless you. : )

what a good idea lynda

have so many cute popcorn tins but never knew what to do with them and hated to get rid of them. this would solve a couple of problems. no more searching for the boxes with Christmas stuff and won't have to worry about anything getting broke or ruined

We put each set of lights in a seperate plastic grocery bag. Makes it a lot easier to get each string. Especially the icile lights. All the bags of lights go into boxes marked either inside or outside lights.
