January joy, and a product we like

The January tree

It’s been ages since I recommended a product (still not ad supported, read on!) But I’m so happy with my new branch ties that I wanted to share this cool little light string accessory.

This package of 100 green branch clips for mini lights was $7.95 on Amazon.

I keep my narrow tree out all year. I started it years ago when I was still tutoring in my home  and keep it up for the day when we return to in-person.

This year, the entire middle section of lights went out, including the color string I light at Christmas. I took everything off and spent a couple of hours restringing new lights with these soft plastic twisty clips. It would have taken at least twice as long without them.

Here’s the finished product for this year, finally. The Valentine tree might be a little late this year!


      • I thought I’d get caught up more but I was gone longer than intended, we got snow, heavy at times and I don’t like driving in it and I have a trickle charger on my car and so had to dry everything off before putting it into the garage and plugging it in (to keep the battery charged). Not great when it is snowing furiously outside and I can only pull 1/3 of the car in at a time – that cost me about an hour … I’ve not written Monday’s post, so it will be short and we finally have snow coming maybe tonight, tomorrow night and Monday – not happy about that. I’d rather deal with the cold than the snow as I am no longer sure-footed.
