Properly storing holiday lights and decorations will make things easier every year. To store lights without tangling, wrap them around a cardboard rectangle cut-out. Use paper towels or old newspapers to wrap ornaments. Separators used for beverages can work for ball-shaped ornaments, and egg cartons are nice for small trinkets. Rather than trying to fit it in its box, wrap an artificial tree in shrink wrap or place it in a tree-storage bag. To store wreaths, invest in a cheap clothing rack. Garland should have its own storage bin and beaded strings can go in an empty soda bottle. Tinsel can be wrapped around cardboard, taping the ends.
