    This is brilliant! I hate when my lights get tangled!! It almost takes the fun out of the lights when you need to spend an hour de-tangling! Thank you!!

    Empty paper towel tubes are great for storing extension cords also...just fold the cord and put it in the tube. Write the length on the outside of the tube.

    Hmmm, still looks a bit tangled, but gives me ideas...

  • Another simple trick is to wind the lights in a small circle & put in a large zip loc bag, perfect no fuss, no muss for the next season. :-)

    Another tip is to wind them on plastic coat hangers and hang them out of the way.

    You still need to wrap/put them somewhere where the little bulbs don't get broken, personally prefer the PVC pipe.
