Re-packing Breakable Items

Hi everyone! While packing up the Christmas decorations yesterday, I thought I'd share something with you. This has helped me SO much over the years and I really wanted to pass it on. I purchased my beloved Nativity Scene about 10 years ago the day after Christmas from Target. It's truly one of my favorite things to this day. Well, seeing how well it was packaged gave me a bit of anxiety the first time I took it out of the box. I wanted to keep it nice and unbroken as well as get it to fit back exactly. So I had an idea... I numbered the outside of the box, a number for each figurine. I then numbered the inside of the foam (where each was placed) with coinciding numbers to each figurine. That way each year I removed them, they would have their exact home when putting them back. No more guess work as to which small cut-out which figurine when to. This has made packing them back up each year a breeze!
