If you’d like to see a before of this gift closet, be sure to check out the highlight reel on Instagram. I think you can imagine it pretty easily… crap everywhere -ha! But once again, Cathryn Linn of the Organizing Org waved her magic wand over this closet, and I breathed a sigh of relief. She has some really great ideas that I wanted to share!
- Utilizing wall space with hooks for bags that are usually on the floor! YAY! I can walk in the closet! Usually, my pool bag and my bag of items to be returned are on the floor. How pretty would it be if I got some Land’s End totes monogramed with Pool Bag, Returns, etc.?
- I love the plastic bins on the side. There are some items that would inevitably end up on the floor, but now I have a place to throw them! This way, they won’t be strewn all over the floor, prohibiting me from getting to my gift stuff. I also like how the bags and bins are on one side of the closet, so I can walk to the back gift area easily.
3. Containers for ribbons and cards!
4. I’ve never seen something so smart in my life! Hahahaha! That’s truly how I felt when I saw her solution. These bags, boxes and tissues used to be in the drawers, and I could never get to the right size bag or tissue paper. Now, that’s no problem!
I can see the size, color and occasion very easily- boxes, kraft bags, wine bags, general, birthday, holiday, special occasion, clean bags, tissue paper…. Isn’t she a genius?!?
The gifts used to be all over the floor, but now that the gift wrapping is on the top, she moved the gifts to the drawers!
I’m so happy with my new gift closet. I hope you found some ideas for yourself! These ideas seem practical and easy to implement, and I hope you find them to be.
