{Organizing} Gift Wrap

On a recent visit to The Container Store (a ‘visit’ means you just go to look around, not to buy), I discovered they were having a 25% off Shelving Event. Well, my inner manic couldn’t let that pass…so I loaded up my cart with a discounted Door Rack System. So much for just visiting. My girl, Freckle’s post, had my wheels spinning, and there was no stopping that train.

Once home, I attacked an unsuspecting closet door.

My ridiculously large gift wrap collection had been stashed all over the house, but mostly under my son’s bed. Now it’s neat and compact, and oh so pretty. (Download my free Important Dates printable here.)

I hope you’ll hop over to I Heart Organizing
for my contributor post to see all the glorious details…and how I squeezed every ounce of usable space from that door. But don’t blame me if
it sparks your own OCD episode!

  3. It's like organizing is my drug and you and Jen from iheart are my dealers. Just keep up the awesome posts or else I might get the shakes. πŸ™‚ Enough of slightly inappropriate comparisons, i truly love this. It fed my Christmas crazed soul AND my ocd tendencies….double whammy! Absolute perfection! πŸ™‚

  4. We went to a wedding last night and I was wrapping the gift Wednesday thinking to myself, "This large box full of bags/ribbon/tissue paper sure could use a more organized space!" This post was meant to be! Thanks for sharing!

  7. I just peed my pants when I saw you gave me some linky love! And I'm only on my 1st glass of wine so you know it's not the alcohol that's causing bladder issues. Just pure joy that you mentioned me.

    Not only does your giftwrap organizer put mine to serious shame but the fact that The Container Store gave you a shout out on their FB page, well……I just wet my pants again in my excitement.

    What I'm trying to say is I could throw open that closet door of yours w/ flourish ALL FRIGGIN' DAY just to stare at the glorious giftwrap. The magnetic tins? Genius.

    Your sure got purty ribbon.

  8. Ahhh, this is so awesomely organized it's got me swooning!! You should see my sad collection of gift wrap- piled in a pitiful heap in a box in my basement. I'd be buying gifts all day long just so I'd have an excuse to wrap something if my supplies were this organized!

    I recently saw this project linked on a site from a site to your site… and I loved it! I had some spare cash so I ordered two Elfa sets, one for the reading room to contain gift wrap as pictured SO beautifully and the other for a powder room. I didn't like it in the tiny powder room, but now my linen closet is uber-organized!
    Thanks so much for sharing!

  17. Love your pictures! I was just at Costco and noticed they have this same door organizer for less than $40, although I don't believe it has the large holder for wrapping paper at the bottom of the door. I do believe it would work with other stuff from Container Store. Thanks!
