  • They have a special container you can buy. Its like a rubbermaid tote box but its tall to hold the wrapping paper.

  • I have a long underbed storage bin that I keep it all in!

  • agree with previous posts! We have an under bed rubbermaid storage container, it's rectangular and thin, and has wheels on the end of it. It's perfect for wrapping paper, bows, scissors, nametags, and tape. I know before I started doing this, I would always try to scramble to find where I put the leftover bows and nametags and who knows where the scissors are, lol.

  • And perhaps a separate storage container for the ribbons and bows, as mine always get lost under the paper in my storage container.

  • I agree with all of the above.

  • I have mine standing in a clean trash bin, with the smaller pony tail holders on each roll to keep the paper neat.

  • The organizer thingey sounds nice but they can be expensive. I like the clean trash bin idea. That's just as good and probably a lot cheaper. Pony tail holders? That's precious and brilliant!!!!

  • I just bought a wrapping paper storage container at Target on sale for $6. They also had ornament storage boxes, but I found that box to be PERFECT for tape, scissors, bows, tags, ribbon, etc. I just didn't assemble the cardboard dividers that were included, and left them taped to the bottom for future use.

  • I have the tall wrapping paper storage bin for regular wrapping paper, and an under-bed container for Christmas wrapping supplies. I also keep all of our gift bags in one large gift bag, and all of my ribbons in a small gift bag.
