Store Ornaments in Egg Cartons and Cup Holders

Small, round ornaments are a perfect fit for cardboard egg containers. And while you’re on your third coffee run of the day, remember to recycle a few Coffee cup holders on your next lunch break. They are perfect for storing bigger ornaments.

Store Light Strings With Coffee Cans

Cut a slit in the plastic lid of a (washed) coffee can and push through the plug end of a string of lights. Wrap the rest of the lights around the outside of the can and — tada! — no more tangles.

Store Wreaths on Dry Cleaner Hangers

You can bend the bottom of the wire hanger around your Christmas wreaths, then hang them up in a closet or garment rack to keep their shape. And you can even use the plastic garment bag to protect it from dust. Next year, your decorations will look like-new, and it didn’t cost you a dime.
