Gift Wrap Organization Ideas Hall Of Fame
by Taylor @ Home-Storage-Solutions-101.com
Gift wrap organization was the topic of week #51 of the Organized Home Challenge here on the site, and I asked readers to share how they've organized this area of their home.
I got a great progress report from a reader below, that I wanted to share since I think it is so motivating to hear what people have accomplished in their homes.
If you'd like to share how you organize your wrapping paper and other gift wrapping supplies I'd love to hear from you too. You can share your results and organization tips here
, to get featured in the hall of fame.
In addition, if these ideas and information gets you inspired to do this for yourself, you can check out my step by step instructions for how to organize wrapping paper
and other gift wrapping supplies in your own home.
Organize Wrapping Supplies: My Progress From The Challenge
Gift wrap organization - After
Dawn has shared her progress with gift wrap organization from this challenge.
I am fortunate to have a cupboard in my kitchen that I could give up for my wrapping supplies. I always do my cards and wrapping in the kitchen so this seemed a logical place for me to keep these items.
I was so focused on getting this job done that I neglected to take a before picture, but let me tell you that this cupboard had become the 'junk drawer' of my kitchen. It had old party napkins, cups, cards, paper, manuals, a graduation frame, candles, room fresheners and even an old laptop! What a mess.
I also had wrapping supplies/cards all over my house. In my office space, the linen closet and in boxes in my basement. I really didn't know what I had! I would usually end up buying new for each occasion because of that :( .
I now have plenty that will probably last me years! I am so relieved to have this job done. It feels good to know what I have at a glance and it's handy too! As I go through more challenges, I will probably find more items for this cupboard.
Thanks for the challenge! It was sooo needed :)
Great job Dawn! I love your after picture. It looks like a great little area to access, and should make wrapping presents both fun and easy.
I like how you made yourself a gift wrapping center in an area where you already do that task, so it made it really convenient for you. In addition, gathering your supplies together from around the house will save you both time and money in the future, since you won't have to hunt for stuff and you don't have to buy more each time a present needs to be wrapped.
Does anyone else have a great way they like to store their gift wrap and other wrapping supplies? If so, I'd love for you to share it with me for the hall of fame.
