Hang Time

'Tis the season to start stringing up your holiday lights.

Experts say you can probably light up the outside of your house for less than $10.

But before you attempt anything, there are a few "don't's" to keep in mind.

Don't use a staple gun or nails to hang up the lights. Instead use plastic hangers that attach to the gutters.

Don't put the lights in direct weather. Make sure they're protected by the eaves of your house.

And don't overload the circuit by plugging too many cords together.
