Each year my goal is to be done Christmas shopping by Thanksgiving. I’ve never actually met the goal but it’s one I like to make for myself. I usually start brainstorming in October and will gradually make purchases along the way.
I’ve already started wrapping my gifts too. A little each time when the package arrives or when I come home from shopping. It keeps my sanity and stress level lower.
Have you wrapped any presents for the upcoming holiday?
Do you have a litter of bows, tape and paper?
Remove the clutter from your floor, bed or table with one of these Gift Wrap Storage Ideas – Finding a System That Works For You.
Once you’ve picked a system, I’ll share my simple Gift Wrap Rules with you.
- Reuse – Bags and Tissue Paper. Only keep ones that are in good shape. Trash any that look used.
- Buy Simple Wrapping Paper. Something that can be used for any occasion or gender. Think stripes/dots/solids. This avoids buying too many papers and not having the space to store them.
- Paper for Household Members; Bags for Everyone Else. I use wrapping paper for those who live with me and bags for those who don’t. That way the bags are reused, but don’t stay in my house, adding to clutter.
