We all know that the holidays are one of the busiest days ever, not to mention the most costly! As much as we’re all trying to be frugal in here, we can’t avoid shelling out some money because it is Christmas.
However, here are some hacks that are totally a bang for your buck. Enjoy!
Christmas Wrapping Paper Organisation
Organise a wrapping paper station while the holidays are still a long way to go.
A tad helpful! No wrinkled wrapping paper anymore!
With these multi-purpose trays, organising your wrapping paper and other stuff would be easy-breezy.
Yep, this hook-and-pole setup is a lot of help.
And this plastic container with mini receptacles to hold your ribbons is also a must-have.
Not so frugal but a gift-wrapping corner like this could definitely help. May it be Christmas, Valentines, birthdays or anniversaries.
This wrapper holder is a fancy addition to your home. I mean, really.
Yep, a plastic cabinet with labels will do nicely!
Christmas Decoration Organisation
Sort your Christmas balls by colour and place them inside different translucent boxes.
Wind up your Christmas lights in wide sheets of cardboard or cartons.
Or you could place those pesky (and shiny!) balls inside a used egg tray.
Or in apple containers.
Or your could leave the balls hanging. Lol!
Place Christmas chains inside a huge plastic bottle.
Or put them inside plastic cups before putting them inside the boxes. Serves like a tray.
These multi-purpose plastic boxes are really useful for organising your Christmas decorations.

Not really a hack but your precious Christmas tree should be placed in this red bag with wheels right after the holidays.
Or you could take the easy route and wrap it all in plastic cling wrap.

How to Store Christmas Lights

Or remove bulbs from their sockets and place them inside mason jars.
Again, not really a hack but if you have too many Christmas lights at home, you should definitely have these babies.
You could also use your old hangers as a Christmas lights organiser.
Or choose to have bendy hangers instead.
These wooden pegs could also help you out.
For you not to forget where you put your Christmas lights, stow them away in printed bags.
