Labeled Tree Layers
Artificial Christmas trees are assembled in color-coded layers.
After a few years, the colors rub off (or you lose the
instructions), and putting the tree together gets confusing.
Try this simple trick. When you disassemble the tree at the
end of the season, do it one level at a time. Once all the
branches from one level are off, duct-tape them together and
number each layer with a marker. Next year, the tree will go
together in a snap!
