Turn leftover cardboard into a DIY spool for storing Christmas lights 

Create A DIY Spool For Christmas Light Storage

Recycle cardboard and keep strings of holiday lights from getting tangled when you store them. Just use strips of cardboard and cut out a slot on each end to make a "spool" to keep lights from slipping off.

Wrap each light string around a cardboard spool, label it and store it in a plastic bin for next year. 

Another way to store Christmas lights is to wind them around a hose reel.
