How do others hang their Christmas lights?

I am looking for an efficient hanger system for my Christmas lights around the eaves of the house (no gutters) what have others used that they were able to just leave from season to season so that the job becomes less labor intensive the following year. Do others just leave their lights year round?

    Tony...My husband buys clips for our eaves to attach the lights to. They can be found with the light in the hardware store, etc. We do not leave ours out. He removes them after the New Year. Hope this helps!

    I've used two diffferent kinds of hangers in the past but have found the screw in cup holders work best if installing them into a wooden surface. Over time the plastic ones have broken from UV damage.

    I use screw in hooks into the eaves. Leave them in all year round. Not the lights. Hang other seasonal and holiday items from them.

    Use cable hooks. They are u shaped hooks that have a nail that goes into a wall, then the hook can be turned to incorporate the wires. Mainly used around the house for telephone wires.
