I just needed to share with the only group of people that would understand. I just got done with zip tying 12 cases of lights. Woo-hoo! Now on to the next project.

 

12 cases? wow!

Yep. It has taken me a long time to get them all done and I do not want to zip tie another thing. (at least until the sales next spring, that is)

 

I hear you...

 

In the last three months I've gone through over 3000 of them, with about 500 left to do.  I can barely whip myself into going into the garage and tying lights on the last of my mini-Martys

 

Someone ever asks me what I have the most of in the yard, they're gonna be mighty surprised by my answer.

I'm a new guy, so I have to ask, zip tied to what?

For some I zip tied to elements(decorations) in the yard. But mostly I am zip tying them into color groups as it reduces the put up and take down time and I find that they do not tangle in larger bundles when I store them.

My fingers are raw as well. It is crazy the things we do for this hobby, but the smiles standing out front will make it worth it.

That's a lot of lights.

Agreed. 

 

I refurbished all my mini trees this year, converting them over to all-LED.  (about 150 zip ties for each one)  I converted two mini-Marty fan props from incandescent to LED and I constructed two new mini-Martys. (About 800 zip ties per fan)  And I created a few more superstrands of red and green. (These required ONLY about 30 zip ties per strand.)  It sure adds up fast.  I'm just glad I'm not buying the zip ties at retail.  Stores around here want as much as $9.95 for the same 100 zip ties that I can order from Monoprice for 30 cents.

Yep, monoprice is my goto place for zip ties and cables.
