Like a lot of you, I had trouble sorting out my Christmas lights when I got them out of storage. I bought some chenille pipe cleaners at the hobby store. I wind the length of the lights from my elbow to the palm of my hand, over and over, for each set. I then have a nice neat circle. I take three or four of the pipe cleaners and I wrap them around the lights, about six inches apart. This keeps the lights from tangling and the chenille keeps from scratching the lights.
