Storage Solutions: Gift Wrapping Supplies

If you’re anything like me, you’re probably still trying to recover from the holidays. By this point, most of my decor has been put away and as I mentioned last week, I am working on improving my storage spaces.

Do you have a designated way you store wrapping supplies? I’ve used a method for the past 5 years and I have to say, it works wonders. I seem to collect very little actual wrapping paper, only 1-2 rolls at a time, but bows and boxes and tissue paper?? I’ve got them coming out. my. ears. It gets a little out of control. So are you ready for my big secret?!? Here it is!Wrapping Paper Storage

Yep, that’s right, it’s a large gift bag! But wait, there’s more. . .

3. In the front, tissue paper. All shades are welcome here, but for me there’s no replacement for classic white.
