Hang on to empty egg cartons, drink carriers, plastic clamshell boxes from the bakery and other disposable grocery containers instead of throwing them away. They work great for storing holiday ornaments.
Egg cartons are especially useful for storing small ornaments, while drink carries work great for large ones. Plastic clamshell boxes are ideal for odd-shape ornaments, large and small, and should include tissue paper or other protective material inside to stabilize the pieces since there aren’t separate compartments like the other containers mentioned above.
These repurposed food containers can be stacked neatly inside a larger storage bin, and they’ll protect your ornaments until you bring them out again for the next holiday season.
