'Tis The Season To Get Organized


Happy New Year Friends!


Now that the new year has begun, I'm working on getting things back in order and getting Christmas put away and organized.

It would be so much faster and easier to just throw things behind closed doors, but doing that would just come back to haunt me later when I'm looking for something.

If you've been following me for awhile, y'all know I love armoires. Now that TVs are so big and don't fit in armoires anymore, you can pick one up for a song (ok, maybe a few dollars more than that) on Craigslist and yard sales. 

Remember, we had 2 of these in our Great Room at our previous house and one held a TV and the other one held books, pillows, etc. They didn't look right in our new Great Room and we needed storage in our Office/Craft Room, so that's where we have it now. We originally purchased 1 full retail for about $800 and found one on Craigslist about 8 years later (the same one) for $350. I've seen them for as little as $150.



In the top of the armoire, we keep craft supplies and the printer and paper. The bottom is the perfect spot to hold most of our gift wrapping supplies. 
In the bin on the left side, top shelf there is curling ribbon, some misc ribbon and Christmas package tape. Center bin holds krinkle paper and cellophane bags. The right bin holds gift tags. 

There's space on the bottom shelf for boxes, bags, tissue paper...

The bin holds gift bags and tissue paper. Below the bin are a few priority boxes and envelopes and on top are new, folded boxes and a few padded envelopes.


The drawer on the bottom of the armoire holds wrapping paper. I keep the Christmas wrapping paper up in the attic since it takes up a lot of space and we only need it once a year.






Since the armoire is in the office/craft room, I also have lots of other ribbon to
choose from in the bookcases on the other side of the room.  Don't hate me.


Now that the gift wrapping supplies are put away neatly and organized, I can get on to the rest of the house where there's lots of organizing left to do.
