What is the GOLDFISH MYSTERY???
First, a few of tips on how to undecorate your tree...
1) Takedown in the EXACT reverse that you Decorated...For me, Icicles went on VERY LAST so they were first to come off... that way, the strings that hold the ornaments dont get tangled by taking down a Ball that went on BEFORE the Icicle...string, Hangy thingys will tangle for sure!
2) Takedown all of one "Like" ornament at a time...All icicles FIRST...then start on your next "Like" ornament
3) Create groupings of all like ornaments and Pack them together in containers...This makes for EASY Decorating next year!
4) Store in room temp if possible...the heat of an attic will RUIN the silk Foliage of the Tree...and is NOT good for the ornamants...if you dont have the storage room in the house, a garage closet is better than the attic...
See how neat and organized!!! LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE!
So we all know that my tree is UNdecorated and packed and put away, RIGHT?
Well...Here was the ACTION takin place at my home while UNdecorating my tree...
|Heller Everyone!!!!!!!! Im Mr GOLDFISH and this is my HOUSE!|
