If you have ever had to untangle Christmas lights before, you know what a pain it can be.
A few years ago I learned a neat little trick. Once you have taken all the ornaments off the tree, grab a piece of cardboard or a flattened gift box. Secure the end of a Christmas light stand to one end of the cardboard with tape.
Then proceed to wrap the stand of lights around the cardboard until you reach the end of the strand. We use one piece piece of cardboard per 100 foot strand of lights.
Now all you have to do is tuck the lights away into your holiday storage box until next year.
Do YOU do this? Or is this an OCD thing?
