I realize that this Christmas light solution is a bit late in the season…but if you are like me, you keep your Christmas decorations up through New Year’s Day. Yesterday I was looking through the Christmas sale items at Lowe’s and happened upon this great little gadget for easily turning on/off Christmas lights. I had been struggling with moving the credenza, next to my mantel, to plug and unplug the lights.
For only $16 I purchased a Remote Control Power System which eliminates the need to move the credenza several times each day. Simply plug the converter into an outlet, then plug the lights into the converter, and finally use the mini remote control to turn the power on and off. There are 3 converters in the package, which all run on the same remote
I did not put up a Christmas tree this year, but this would be a great solution for hiding the cord and plug out of sight behind the tree. You will find many uses for these converters around your house. I quickly used all 3 and went back to purchase another set!
