Simple Storage Solutions

Try these:

• Use egg cartons to hold small, breakable ornaments.
• Wrap lights around paper towel tubes—and store extension cords inside. 
• Stubs wads of used wrapping paper in the loops of large (expensive) bows you’d like to keep to help them maintain their shape.
• Store bows and ribbon in plastic (crush-proof) containers.
• Label everything carefully, so that you can pick and choose what to get out next year!
• Keep a running list (on the computer) of who received what to avoid duplicating gifts next year.

Thanks for the great ideas! We also just began using an artificial tree last year. It took a little getting used to by our "real tree fan" family but it does have it's benefits. I have heard to cover it with plastic and store it in your basement verses take it apart every year. If you have other any ideas on how to keep it dust free and easy to store I would love to hear them.
