I don't know about you, but I find it hard to resist the $2.99 rolls of wrapping paper at Homegoods. They always have the bins strategically placed at the checkout counter at our local store and it's just hard to pass them up. The patterns are so pretty and the price can't be beat. There's so many great DIY projects for wrapping paper out there too, so it's good to keep some on hand especially if it's a pattern you love. However, my collection was getting out of hand. I had been storing it in one of those under the bed storage boxes in our attic, but it made it hard to get to and I didn't use it as often as I would like because it wasn't accessible.
I came across this simple hamper at Marshall's and knew it would be a good solution for my little wrapping paper problem. It was pretty inexpensive too. I've been thinking about painting the white portion gold (shocking I know) to glam it up a bit, but for now it gets the job done.
I tied a little twine around the open rolls to keep them from getting out of control.
I'm also really loving this solution for wrapping paper storage that I recently came across on I Heart Organizing. Or if you have an extra room in your house you could just dedicate the whole thing to wrapping presents like Candy Spelling.
I remember seeing this room on TV a while back and being amazed that she had a whole room dedicated to wrapping presents. Obviously her home is not lacking in the space department. :)
