An easy and affordable way to organize and protect holiday tree ornaments

One package you won’t want to open next holiday season: the dented cardboard box labeled “Christmas” that jingles with the sound of broken glass.  Those fragile glass ornaments present a storage challenge every year, until now.  The geniuses at Martha Stewart strike again with this simple (and cheap) idea for organizing and protecting your ornaments.  The site suggests hot gluing paper cups onto a piece of cardboard cut to fit in the bottom of a storage bin.  Each ornament can then be wrapped in tissue and tucked into a cup for extra padding.  Stack multiple layers inside one storage bin and use egg cartons to store smaller easy-to-lose ornaments.

    Good idea,I usually separate everything,ornaments would be wrapped in pillow stuffing,to prevent breakage.
