Christmas Challenge - Part 2

2 - Reuse paper towel tubes to wrap Christmas lights on for storage.  This idea not only reuses the cardboard, but it makes decorating the tree a little easier.  The tube full of lights is easy to pass around the tree, and the lights don't get tangled up like they do with other methods we've tried.

Hey, it's a time-tested idea. We have been doing this since I was a kid (i.e. before you were born!)
For those who don't use paper towels (yup, there are some of us out here), an empty wrapping paper tube can be cut to a convenient size, or foled over (and taped?) for a larger "roller". You can even cut a little slot in the end of the tube to hold the plug ends.
