Tackle It Tuesday - Wrapping paper disaster

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

My Tackle It Tuesday this week is my wrapping paper disaster area. I have a container where I keep all the misc. Wrapping paper, gift bags, tissues and gift boxes. It is overflowing and it takes me forever to find anything. I figured if I was going to have it out to wrap gifts, I might as well organize it and make my life easier. Here is the overflowing mess.....





I threw away old crumpled bows and old wrapping paper. I had bags in there from stores with their logos blazoned all over them. Who wants that for a gift bag? Those I put in the garage, because they are great for putting out grown clothes into to take to charity.

I neatly folded all the tissue paper and put it in a special place and I neatly folded all the misc. Wrapping paper that was bunched up at the bottom of the container. Okay, I know, it's a little over the top, but I can't stand crumpled up tissue paper and I like to be able to reuse it.

I put all the Christmas papers and Christmas gift bags on one side of the container and the birthday papers and gift bags on the other side of the storage container as well as the other seasonal items. I put all the gift boxes in the roll paper container with the rolls of wrapping paper and I separated the bows from the ribbons. Here is what it looks like now.....


Now I can easily find things and save myself a ton of time, especially at midnight when I frantically trying to wrap everything. I'm always running behind.

GREAT tackle! My wrapping paper is all in different containers and bags, falling out all over my garage. NOT good! Good for you!

I have so many things that I need to tackle in my house. Since I have no idea where to begin, I seem to just leave them.
