How to Store Wrapping Paper with a Garment Bag

I saw a TikTok about how to store wrapping paper, and now I'm about to change the way I stay organized!

I’m always looking for the next great life hack, especially with a genius app like TikTok at my fingertips. I’ve already learned some nifty shower cleaning hacks, how to cut a bell pepper and how to use a microwaves (that one helped me a lot). But trust me when I say there’s a whole lot more where that came from! TikTok is an endless stream of helpful information, and we’re dedicated to finding the best of the best.

This next handy tip explains how to store wrapping paper the smart way. Get ready to say goodbye to your old method!

How to Store Wrapping Paper

This sweet organization tip comes from brilliant TikTok user @howdoesshe. She’s making our lives easier one video at a time!

The premise is super simple. And I mean super simple. You need a garment bag, a clothes hanger and a bit of space in your closet. Take your different-sized rolls of wrapping paper, place them in the garment bag, close the zipper and hang your wrapping paper up like it’s another piece of your dazzling winter wardrobe.

How simple is that?! No more wrestling with storage bins that seem to lose more and more space every year. Don’t even get me started on the wrapping paper rolls that are always slightly too long to fit. Besides, we already have so many storage bins stacked up in our basements, attics and garages—we don’t need to add another to the list!

More Ways to Store Wrapping Paper

If this particular hack doesn’t work for you, I have a couple more under wraps. Some have taken to using a camp chair bag as a holder for their rolls, while others have installed their own fancy wrapping paper displays for rolls and ribbons alike. You can slip tension rods through the middle cardboard tube and have wrapping paper ready to go any day, any time! Your future self will thank you when you’re wrapping Christmas gifts.

Or, you can be like my family and stuff all your wrapping paper rolls between the floor joists in your basement. Still got plenty of rolls down there as we speak. Remember, cheap and easy is always key.
