I’m starting a column that I’ve been wanting to do for a while. Whenever I figure something out or have a clever way to do something I always joke and follow it up by saying “Pro-tip by Jordan Ferney.” I thought it would be great to have a place where people can share things they come up with. Just small details that make life a bit easier. Here is the first one.
When I worked for Stanlee Gatti, the event planner, we used twinkly lights all the time. He would store each strand wrapped up in a ball. It’s genius because they never get tangled. You just start at the side without the plug and then wrap it up over and over onto itself. It’s important to leave the plug side free because otherwise how will you plug them in and take cute photos of you and your family with glowy balls of lights?
