When the holidays are gone, we all have those delicate Christmas decorations that must be carefully packed away and kept.

Plastic tablecloths can be an inexpensive and effective packaging material. You can shred them, chop them into smaller bits, or crumble them up as is. They’re soft and light, and they can take up as much or as little room as you require. Another location where I don’t mind using dollar shop tablecloths is in the kitchen.

Whether you’re having a yard sale, throwing a party, or visiting relatives for the holidays, a screen or room divider can help you hide items or restrict the view into a particular area of your home. Use a plastic tablecloth if the necessity is only temporary.

You can do this in various ways: put it up in a doorway or over a section of the room, toss it over anything you wish to hide, or even connect it to a piece of plywood or a PVC pipe frame. This is an excellent option if you’re planning a pool party and need to put up a change room.
