Clever Martha

Have you put away your Christmas decorations yet?  I usually have by now but won't even be able to get to it for a couple more days.  I need another ornament box....problem solved!

Martha's Organization Tip for Today:
Keep your treasured ornaments safe and sound until next year with this surefire way of packing them away.

Safe Ornament Storage

Protect your dearest ornaments from damage as you pack up after the holiday this year. Cut a piece of corrugated cardboard to line the bottom of a plastic storage bin.

Then use a hot-glue gun to attach paper cups to the cardboard. Wrap ornaments in tissue paper, and place in cups. Then stack cardboard-and-cup flats inside the container. Store smaller ornaments in egg cartons.

that really is a good idea! I need an ornament box (or several) too... in the case that I don't have time to make one, where did you get yours? They don't have them at Target or Hobby Lobby

I need one too, but maybe I'll try this. I'm sure I have a glue gun somewhere :-)!

I hate Martha --but I love you.
good ideas though!!
crap, why couldn't I think of something as simple and sensible as using egg cartons to store decorations.

We just have hubby's Christmas village to put away and then it is all done. Since I was gone to Utah for Christmas, we never put up a tree or much.

have a great New Year
