Christmas (or Xmas) Ornaments
As in: The angel tree topper that now has a broken wing.
Layer ornaments in a large plastic bin. Separate ornaments into three piles: fragile ones, less breakable ones, and those that are the size of a lemon or smaller (whether breakable or not). “Lay the non-fragile ornaments on the bottom of a large plastic storage bin, then add a layer of crisscross strips of cardboard on top,” says Gracia. “Next, place two kitchen-utensil drawer inserts on the cardboard and put the smaller ornaments inside them. Then wrap the fragile items in bubble wrap or tissue paper and lay them on top. Finally, pad those with the Christmas-tree skirt before closing the lid.”
