Organized Wrapping Storage

We just started to wrap some Christmas gifts.  I thought I would show our gift wrap storage container.  I love it!  I can't remember where we bought it, though. 

I like the upright storage.  We used to store our wrapping paper in one of those under-the-bed plastic storage bins, but that was so inconvenient.
 

This one has a small storage area on top for ribbons, scissors, tape, etc.
 
We don't store a lot of wrapping paper; we mostly have Christmas paper, birthday paper, flowery paper and a few "plain" rolls. 
 
This is the label on the side of the container, it says "Snaplock Wrap Storage Box."  You can usually find these containers in stores this time of year; or in January when storage and organizing items are on sale.

We store gift bags and boxes in this organizer that I bought from Improvements a few years ago.  This is the best organizer! It has three compartments, and zips completely shut.  It has a handle on top, and it's very sturdy.  The web site lists it for $14.99. 

How do you store your wrapping paper or gift boxes?  Have you started to wrap any Christmas gifts yet?

Hi Laurie, I'd love for you to join We're Organized Wednesday this week. There's a fun giveaway too.

I like upright storage for my gift wrap too. I like that you can have all the supplies in one place. Thanks for the recommendation and for linking to We're Organized Wednesday.

I saw these at walmart last year after christmas and wanted to get one, i have NO idea why I didnt but I was kicking myself because I couldnt find them again later on. I AM going to buy one this year though. They are so worth it.

I just bought a storage box similar from the grocery store but it doesn't have a storage section for tape and scissors. Now I'm jealous!

We send checks so I haven't used wrapping paper to any large degree. I do buy the bags and tissue paper and just keep it in a bin on the shelf. One like yours would have been so useful when my family was younger. Have a great day.

I NEED one of those! I can't tell you how often I curse the wrapping paper over the holidays :-)

Hi! We have 2 of the gift wrap storage containers. We think we got them at Lowe's a few years ago. They do work great!

Aren't they great? I love that yours has the organizing tray at the top. I end up getting the taller tubes of wrapping paper for christmas so I leave the lid off of mine.
Thanks for linking this to my Organizing Mission Monday link party!
