This is what I do, except I use zip ties. I zip tie just about everything, all my extension cords, cords to various decorations, strings of lights, etc. Makes it way easier when I'm getting stuff out for next year. I buy zip ties in bulk from Home Depot. Then everything gets sorted into various totes - all my extension cords and electrical stuff in one, all the lights in another, and so on.
Oh, and I store them without the stakes, only so they don't take up quite as much room.
