Summer’s here, and if you’ve still got those Christmas lights out because you just can’t think of how to store them properly, here’s the perfect solution. Take an ordinary hanger and wrap the length of your lights around it for easy storage. You can either hang it away in a closet or place it in a box. When the holiday season comes again, you can unwind them with ease.

PREPARE your hanger, wood or plastic hangers

Tip: Dedicate one hanger for each set of lights.
