Did you make the jump to a…well… let's call it imitation Frasier fur? We don't want to use the F word (fake), but if that's what you did, let's face it – the tree comes without a mess which is GREAT!

Our least favorite is to pull out adorable wrapping paper from the year before that was stuffed somewhere in the off season and now it is crinkled and feels unusable. Never make that mistake again with this great paper storage solution. If you have more paper than what fits in the bag, then it's time to make the hard decison of what doesn't make the cut.
