The holidays can be ruff. Here’s 7 ways to save time and money during and after the holidays.
Use an old wine crate to neatly store your wrapping paper rolls. Slide a cardboard tube around the paper to stop it from coming loose.
Wrap Christmas lights around clothing hangers to keep them from tangling in storage. A great way to make use of old clothing hangers.
Save your egg cartons and use them to store Christmas ornaments. For bigger ornaments, use plastic cups.
If an ornament breaks, forget the broom—press a slice of bread over the mess of shards to ensure you get even the smallest pieces of glass.
Use your leftover ornaments to fill a vase for a decorative centerpiece. Place a cardboard tube in the center so that your vase looks full without having to use as many bulbs.
Don’t waste money on gift boxes—use old cereal boxes instead, cutting them on three long edges to create their openings.
