The season of gift-wrapping and never-ending presents is upon us!
Can you handle the fuss and the last minute rush to buy and wrap gifts?
Being organized will help you survive and avoid stress. Try some of our organizing tricks that will keep you sane and happy.
6 Ways To Set Up A Gift-Wrap Center
Organise your supplies in one cabinet or cupboard. Neatly stack the supplies in containers grouped by type, fitted neatly into the allocated space.
For a more mobile gift-wrapping centre you can organize a basket/caddy. Fill it with paper, scissors, ribbons and cards and tapes. Carry them to your working table and store away after the task is done.
For a super-organized look you can create a pegboard.
Hang the pegboard above your working table. This way you’ll get to choose the supplies, work on your task and put it back.
4. Plastic Tubs
Plastic tubs are a great way to store gift wrap supplies.
Sizes vary to suit all kinds of spaces, they can be cleared or colored, and some have lids that allow a number of tubs to be stacked neatly.
Gather them under a table. Store them in a cupboard. Stack them in the corner of a room and cover them.
This handy little mobile drawers idea is perfect for people who frequently utilize a gift-wrap center.
Available in stores, they are typically sold as office organizers and you can choose the small ones with three to four drawers.
Organize supply by type in every drawer and label them.
Hang a rack behind a cabinet or closet door for supplies that look neat & tidy & out of sight.
You can hang plastic pockets, or add shelving depending on what suits you best.
Remember to make sure the rack won’t stop the door from closing tight.
