If you have holiday decorations to take down, here are a couple of storage ideas to consider.
Repurpose egg cartons to use as storage for ornaments. (via Unconsumption’s “holiday things” Pinterest board)
If you’ll be storing items in a basement or attic, reuse packets of desiccant, if you have some (e.g., from purchases of shoes or purses); toss them in to help keep things dry.
Use empty coffee cans to help keep strings of lights organized. Store spare bulbs and the string’s plug end inside the can. Cut a slit in the can’s top, poke the cord through the slit, then wrap the rest of the strand around the can. (via Real Simple)
Use some lights year-round: Drill a hole in an empty wine bottle, then thread a string of lights into it. Plug in and enjoy. (via an earlier Unconsumption post here; how to drill a hole info here)
