The best container we’ve found for storing Christmas ornaments is an empty case of wine or liquor (no comment on how we came across this!) Keep the cardboard dividers inside, and you have a handy place to ball up your ornaments with newspaper and keep them safe until next year. These boxes are also great for storing rolled-up artwork and posters.
