Winter – A Time for Organization

I love organizing. I’m anally organized, and any time I find better ways to organize my life, I dive right in. I saw this storage idea for wrapping paper a little while back on Pinterest, so I immediately drove to Ikea to buy all the supplies. Can I just say how lucky I am to live 10 minutes away from an Ikea? Absolutely love that:)

I used to store all of my wrapping paper and ribbon in a huge plastic bag in my basement, and it was always such a pain to wrap gifts. Now everything is neat and tidy, right in my office:

 

I love this solution because my closet doors were just dead space before, I never thought to use them for storage. I bought all of these rods and hangers from Ikea, I think the total bill was about $20.

 

I’m pretty sure this rack was meant to be in a shower, but it’s perfect for ribbon! This organization makes me very, very happy:)

 

Another idea I got from Pinterest? These AWESOME gift tags. It was a free printable that I pinned, so I printed a bunch of these out to use for all my Christmas presents this year – don’t they look awesome? I love wrapping presents. It’s weird, I know, but I love it:)

 

There were different colors and patterns too – I just printed them out on some old white cardstock I had stored away.

I’m so glad that I’ve slowed down a little this time of year, so I can take on little projects like these that I’ve been wanting to do for months! I’ll be posting another project tomorrow:)
