Say Good-Bye to Tangled Lights
Think how much merrier holiday decorating could be with this tangle-defying contraption. The handy reel comes with 50 feet of lights (two 200-bulb strands, enough for an eight-foot tree). When it’s time to put things away, store the wheel in a lawn bag to protect the bulbs from dust. Come next season, check to make sure there are no frayed cords, cracked sockets, or loose wires, all of which can be dangerous.
To buy: $67.50 for a case of 3 light sets with reels, homedepot.com.
