Works For Me Wednesday

Wednesday, May 21, 2008


I love this idea...both what I am going to share, but also the theme for blogging on Wednesday. I read several blogs, where stay at home post little tips that make their life/job easier. Since I have an insane desire to offer advice, I am going to use the idea to challenge me to post more often...
So, if you couldn't gather my tip from the above picture, then let me explain. I use a really large hefty bag hung on a hanger to store all my gift bags, along with the other supplies for wrapping. This is stored in my bedroom closet for the moment, but will likely soon move to the hall closet. Part of my insane desire for organization includes having NOTHING on my closet floor. Even if the shelves have flopped over from stacking shirts too high, there remains a degree of tidiness when the floors are clean.
Okay, your turn, my blogging friends, (Angi, Sammi) what works for you? I read your blogs, so I will be waiting with anticipation for your tips.

Great idea! I battle with those gift bags too often, and tend to hoard too many of them!

Tara said...

good idea.. in fact all my gift wrappings and such are on the floor in the closet at the moment lol Now you have inspired me to get them off the floor and in a better place !!! )

Awesome idea! I'm so excited to implement this in my own closet. I never could figure out what to do with my gift supplies, I never like to crush anything. Thanks for posting such a great tip!

This is a super tip! I've had a box of XXL ziplocs for months, and no idea what to do with them!

Jessica said...

Great idea! I have all my bags folded and stored in a really big bag, but it takes up a lot of space. I even have the XL ziplock bags. I'm doing this when I get home!

Great idea!

Nice! I like that you can see the bags without rifling through all of them, which is what happens in the under-bed bin that I'm using right now. And then my son is crawling in the bin, pulling them out, etc.
