As a result of Pinterest and so many wonderful blogs out there, I feel like I've started to become somewhat of a pack rat. All too many times have I thrown something away and the next day saw a pin on how I could have used it.
I have kept this large oatmeal container for at least a month, hoping to figure out a good way to make use of it. I still hadn't figured out a way to use it yesterday while I was picking up my apartment, when I happened to set it near some large Christmas bulbs I bought this year that didn't come with a box. I noticed immediately that they were almost the same size, and instantly figured out how to use that oatmeal container.

Now my glittery bulbs won't be broken by next Christmas, and most likely the glitter will not get scratched off by other things either. I just stuffed it with some used dryer sheets...but you could use left over tissue paper all crumpled up from opening presents as well.
And what is a good storage method if it isn't pretty? Of course I had to wrap the container with some Christmas wrapping paper!

How is your packing up Christmas going? My assumptions are most of you already have it done unlike me! haha
