Happy New Year! Y'all making any resolutions this year? I know of one New Year's resolution I need to make is to blog more. We'll see how that one goes....
I have a really quick organization post for ya today. While I was wrapping my presents I had a huge mess of wrapping paper, tissue paper and all kinds of other stuff just hanging out in my living room floor for about 2 weeks. Yes, 2 weeks! Oh, trust me....that mess was driving me B-A-N-A-N-A-S. But once I wrapped the first couple of presents, I didn't want to put it all up only to drag it back out again when I bought more presents to wrap. I even had the cable guy come over and he had to step over my mess too. Oh well.
You may remember back when I did this post and reorganized all my wrapping supplies. Well, after almost 2 years, my system just wasn't working. The bags that I kept the tissue paper in ended up being a pain in my ba-donk-a-donk. I wasn't about to put away all my wrapping stuff until it was nicely organized and made me smile a big ole Tippy smile (with bottom teeth showing only). So I sat in the floor and folded each piece of tissue paper individually. Yep, it took forever....just ask my lower back. Then I was left with all of this.
I remembered that I still had an accordion file box from my days as an interior design student that I used to file all of my magazine tear-outs and other design ideas. I even found a left over piece of a carpet sample. Boy oh boy, has my style changed!
I organized them in the file slots (color coordinated, of course) and I smiled.
I smiled like this.
Mission accomplished. I still haven't mastered organizing my ribbon and wrapping paper but once I figure it out, I'll show ya. I was more concerned with the tissue paper since I seem to have a butt-load of it. So how do you all organize your wrapping supplies? Maybe I can steal one of your ideas. :)
