After a big holiday celebration, there's nothing more depressing than a closet cluttered with last season’s gift wrap. Cost-conscious (and eco-conscious) gift-givers will want to save the paper until it’s gone. But finding ways to keep a stack of wrapping paper from crashing out of your closet can be a challenge. We’ve compiled some of our best tips for organizing and storing your wrapping supplies.
Gift Wrap Storage Ideas
- Experiment with storage containers. Be aware of the space where you’d like to store your gift wrap, and find a container that will accommodate it. Several manufacturers make a perfect box to slide under a bed or stack in a closet. Others have crafted a standing solution for storing in a smaller closet or for people who like to keep gift-wrap handy throughout the year. Look for a container with a see-through base so you can easily identify the contents. Smart shoppers will look for after-Christmas sales to find great values on these containers.
- Explore DIY options, such as a gift-wrap system or a gift-wrap storage shelf. Follow the step-by-step instructions to create your own centralized gift-wrap creation station. Wrapping gifts can be fun when you have all the necessities at your fingertips. Plan your crafting station carefully to make sure you include all you need in a clutter-free space.
- Get creative with containers. What do you have around your house that might work to store your wrapping goods? An old, wicker laundry basket might make the perfect solution. Look for tall, thin containers, and see if you can get crafty with hooks and hangers to create the perfect gift-wrapping station for your home.
