I think it's pretty obvious from this blog that..
- I like to clean
- I like to organize
As soon as I get my presents into my room- I lay everything out on my bed. Every single thing. Then I sort. Candles go into my candle drawer, clothes get hung up or put in my dresser, makeup and nail products get put away, and so on.. Everything of mine has a place so there is obviously no exception with new presents. They all need a space. If I can't find a space for that item- then I take something I want to get rid of and donate it to make room for the new item.
How long do you leave all your presents out before you put them away?
I also want to talk a little bit about gift wrap. Now, I'm not a crazy person (well maybe a little bit), but I don't go around ironing wrapping paper or anything- but I do save quite a bit of the gift wrap that I receive my gifts in.
I like to save a few boxes, all the gift bags, tissue paper and ribbons to reuse the following year. Not only is it the "green" thing to do but it saves money! So I put these away with my other gift wrap items for the next year.
I will hopefully soon be updating my gift wrap organization- I plan on ordering this from the container store soon! Isn't it awesome? I can't wait to have it to hold all of my gift bags, tissue paper, ribbons, and gift tags! =)
What do you do with your gift wrap?
