It’s the time of year we all dread…the time when we have to put away the beautiful decorations that seemed fun when you put them up, but are now just a pain in the butt! The worst part is storing delicate ornaments. Many people, (in a hurry to get them put away), just shove them quickly into a box without thinking about what could happen between now and next December. DON’T DO THAT!!!! There is a better way that is practically free, and it only takes a few minutes more of your time! The secret is probably laying deep in your garbage as we speak….old egg cartons! It’s easier than you think…
You can simply place smaller ornaments in the original egg slots and if you have bigger ornaments DON’T FRET! Just take a pair or scissors or box opener and cut out one or two of the dividers between the slots. For stars and other odd shapes, you can form the cartons to fit. Go through this work once, and you will have safe-keeping for your ornaments for years. And what’s the best part? The cartons fit neatly into any box or storage container!
Voila! Perfectly Stored Ornaments!
