Proper storage of wrapping paper and bags saves money and time. Correct storage keeps them smooth and clean, which prevents you from buying new gift wrap every time you wrap a present. Stores sell expensive bins and files for organizing wrapping paper and bags, but you do not have to spend much to keep your gift wrap looking new. You probably already have most of the items you need to properly store them at home.
Things You'll Need
- Paper clips
- Coat hangers
- Poster tubes
Attach paper clips to the ends of wrapping paper rolls. The paper clips will prevent the paper from unrolling and becoming wrinkled and torn.
Store wrapping paper rolls in a tall wastebasket. Place the wastebasket in a closet or pantry. If you have a drawer that is long enough, store your wrapping paper there.
Store loose sheets of wrapping paper in poster tubes. The tubes will keep the paper crisp and smooth. Label each tube with a brief description of the wrapping paper inside.
Hang gift bags on coat hangers, and hang the coat hangers in a closet. Place only five or six bags on a hanger, and leave 2 to 3 inches between hangers. If you store too many bags on a hanger, they may become wrinkled.
