Today I'm showing you how to pack up your Christmas decorations for safe keeping until next year. This is something that I'm sure will have many of at the end of your Christmas season from wrapping all of those presents that you bought. They're really are some very useful things that you can do with these. This is a wrapping paper roll. I decided to go ahead and use mine to wrap my Christmas lights. My Christmas lights always get tangled. I'm sure yours do as well. These really are hard to package right back into the package that they came from. It's very hard to wind them back up exactly as the factory did. I went ahead and I cut my roll in half. Just with some plain scissors. It's very easy to cut through. Then I'm just going to take my strand and I'm going to stick the outlet part in there. Then just go ahead and start winding it around like that. Next year, you'll be able just to unwind it and everything will be in order. Everything won't get tangled up. The other neat trick about this is if you have any extra bulbs, you can go ahead and put them in a zip loc bag. Then you can put the zip loc bag inside the roll as well. That will save you from having to look for the little spare bulbs as I have to every single year. I'm going to go ahead and I'm going to finish this, and I'll see you in the next clip and give you some more tips.
