Usually I save all my egg cartons for the farmers who sell their eggs roadside, but this year I am keeping a bunch of them for myself as they are perfect for storing small Christmas ornaments. No tangles! For larger ornaments I use the boxes you find in stores because they save me so much time when putting up and taking down the ornaments. Clear boxes let you see in before you even get started so if you like to put a certain type of ornament on first you can find them easily.
If you have a great many ornaments and display items, consider having an “Open this Box First” container. Depending on you, it might be lights or it might be something that gets you in the mood to begin decorating. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
