Ornament box worth every penny!
Usually I just lurk here, but I had to share this.
My favorite part of Christmas is the tree -- but my very least favorite part is taking the tree down and putting all those ornaments away. Somehow my husband always seems to get out of helping, too. We usually have a big tree with well over 100 ornaments, so the take-down is no small task.
This year I finally broke down and bought two ornament-storage boxes. I have wanted them for years but always talked myself out of it, thinking it was a waste of money. I cannot tell you how much easier it made the whole task. Instead of wrapping each ornament and arranging them in a regular shallow box, I was able to pop each into its own little compartment. It was easy to put several small ones in each compartment. For very fragile ones (would you believe my MIL makes ornaments out of eggshells?) I wrapped them in a little tissue, but only a few required this treatment.
Anyway, I'm not sure I'm really more *organized* but it seems a good way to store and protect ornaments and make a tedious task easier!
