Christmas Lights

In our attempt to be frugal, my husband and I save our mini XMAS light strands from year to year and attempt to reuse them. We put them in the storage box and they work, we take them out and most of them don't! It is so frustrating. DH just spend two hours trying to make the darn things work with extra bulbs and finally just gave up and went to the hardware store to buy more mini lights.

The first strand out of the box lit up and then seconds (maybe 5) later they stopped. He is sooooo frustrated. So, I've got two questions:

1. Do any of you reuse lights year to year and do they work?

2. Any idea what I could do with the little bulbs and the strands for that matter of the lights that don't work?
