DIY: Christmas Light Storage

I know it is well after New Years, but I am just now taking down my Christmas decorations. Don't judge.  ;) I always try to keep the decorations up in my home as long as possible, because they brighten the place up so much.

Last year, my mom taught me this little trick for storing Christmas lights.  It is simple, easy and saves you the hassle of having to untangle your lights when you take them out every Christmas.


Stuff You'll Need:

Strands of Christmas lights that need to be put away.

Rectangular pieces of cardboard.


Cut a notch at the top an bottom of the cardboard. This is where the ends of the light strands will go.

So have you guys put away all your holiday decorations yet, or are you like me and try to keep them out as long as possible?
