Christmas clean up complete and I'm reminded why some go for the fake trees

I HATE cleaning up Christmas.

As if it's not bad enough that the house looks bare, the lights get all tangled in the tree, and I can't get everything to pack up in the same bins!

We then have to wrestle the tree out of the house.

Only to be left with...

Christmas,Christmas tree,holidays,cleaning


What do you hate about cleaning up after the holidays?

I don't want to brag, but as a lazy person that hates to clean, I thought I could pass this nugget of sloth on to others. My mother is already a convert. I can't have a real tree (kids with allergies) and after having all of my fragile glass bulbs get broken over the years I only use kid-friendly sturdy types. So, 2 years ago I came across a wonderful invention, a fake tree that is not only pre-strung with lights (hallelujah!), but it has all the limbs attached. It comes in 2 pieces that you fit together and then kinda like an umbrella, the limbs come down and you fluff it up a little. Here is the best part, exhausted and overwhelmed, when I went to take it down, I just folded it, ornaments and all and laid it in the box. This year I only had to take it out and fluff. A couple ornaments came off, but overall, it was a 10 minute process to put up and quicker to take down.

OMG April! A pre-lit tree that opens up like an umbrella??? genius! If I give in and go fake, I'm totally getting that tree! Who sells it? Frontgate or someplace really expensive?
