I found one way to store my strings of Christmas lights and they don't seem to tangle together. When I take them down, string by string, I put them in a box then put a sheet of newspaper in between each individual string and layer them in the box. I cover each string completely with the sheet of newspaper so as to not interact with the bottom string so from the side it's like lights-newspaper-lights-newspaper continuing until the box is full. This method works with any size lights from 20 light strands of miniature lights to 100 light strands and the C7 size strands also. Next year, they are not all tangled up with each other. Time saved = more time to decorate.
