    Just thought I would share an idea i had to use hose reels to store my lights.

    I use them for led strip and also Big W strings.

    Looks good but would be pricey

    All ive ever used in the past is the rolls the strip came with, as well as old cable reels that were used for the cabling

    As far as strip is concerned I find that mounting it to conduit makes it easier to work with and store and protects it from being damaged.

    The reels are quite cheap.

    I got them from Bunnings for $9.87 each.
