Wednesday WOW - Storing Christmas Ornaments

I'm sure many of you have already packed the tree and all it's trimmings back up - ours went back into storage over the past weekend.  But, for those of you who are still enjoying the holiday decorations or who were frustrated by how to get it all put away without breaking anything, this one is for you.......

If your ornaments don't fit into egg cartons and you want to invest a few dollars in an alternative storage solution, try this clever idea from Design a la Mod and create you own ornament storage container.  I like this one the best.  I may look for some clearance cups between now and next December so I can make this once we unpack the tree again.

Your turn - do you have a clever or "WOW" idea to share on how to store Christmas decorations?  We love feedback!!!
