When you’ve enjoyed the fun and spirit of Christmas and it’s time to put the decorations away, you’ve to collect your Christmas lights and try to pack them into the Christmas light storage.
I know, you’re not ready to let Christmas go away, maybe you still have time till the New Year’s Eve, but you don’t want to be that odd person, that still has its tree up on Valentines.
The first step is removing them from the tree. The easiest way to do that, is to take all the ornaments first, and only after that – the lights.
When you’ve done that, try not to get tangled in them and trip over the endless wires. Then, the worst part begins. You have to untangle the lights. Yes, you have to face and overcome this, so that next year your merry Christmas decorating is not spoiled by a ball of twisted and horribly messed up lights you’re never able to undo. In order to avoid that worry, despair and irritation, get proper Christmas light storage containers.
Please, don’t throw all of your ferry lights into the random thing you like to call a Christmas light storage box, as it won’t do the job and you’ll appear with the same problem next year.
Just commit to those that will keep your lights tangle-free and neat. Besides, when the lights are stored that way, they occupy less space and don’t jumble with other ornaments. Basically, everything has to have its own place, as your and my mum would have said.
So, let’s look through some Christmas light storage ideas. The most common, convenient and easy thing is a bag with Christmas light storage reels.
You just reel up the lights around them just if they were a thread and a clew, and put them into the bag when you’re finished. Another variant is to get a special container with several divisions you put the lights over. In the end, you may use your ordinary closet hanger and wound your ferry lights on it.
