Use this easy trick to prevent tangled Christmas lights!

Use this simple trick to keep lights organized!

Untangling Christmas lights after they’ve been in storage is one of my least favorite holiday activities.  It’s so frustrating!  A few years ago I learned a quick trick that has saved me from tangled lights ever since.

1- Untangle your lights

After the lights are untangled, we’ll be going for a zigzag pattern.

2- Pick up every other light

Pick up every other light and point them toward the top of your hand.  This will put the other lights at the bottom of your hand.  Keep going until you’re holding all the lights on the strand.

3- Wrap the cord
