Is Christmas light storage useful?

Tangle Free Christmas Light Storage

As you struggle to untangle last year's Christmas lights, you might feel like you are fighting an octopus. It seems as though new tangles appear each time you get a part of the strings untangled. Boy, do you ever wish you would have taken the time to pack them neatly away last year instead of quickly tossing them into a storage container. Luckily, this year will be different because you are shopping for Christmas light storage.

Christmas light organization and storage tools can save time and money. To make the most of these tools, you should:

  • Always take the time to wind strings of lights neatly on the organizer. You will be able to quickly lift your neatly wrapped lights and unroll them in a matter of seconds.
  • Avoid unrolling the entire string of lights before you start hanging them, especially if you are working with strands that are fifty feet or more in length. Unroll part of the string, fasten it and then unroll a bit more. This helps you avoid tangles after you've unpacked the lights.
  • Always wind lights that are different colors or sizes on their own storage spool. Having to unwind an entire string of lights simply because the set of lights you want to use is wound underneath it is a very frustrating experience.
