Do you have a Gift Center at your house? It's a drawer or area that stores gift wrap, tape, ribbons and maybe even some gifts that you may have on hand.
I've been jamming my gift things into a small, dark closet. The items had overflowed from a drawer and needed more space. All those gift bags! They really accumulate after awhile!
For several years now, I've been stuffing things in this closet and hating the disorganization of it. Oh, for the time to straighten it up! Poor me, I never have enough time for things like that. So I continued to dig for tissue paper and squished bows every time someone had a birthday.
A couple of Saturdays ago, I decided I would give myself 15 minutes to work on that closet.
I'm ashamed to say that in 15 minutes, I had my Gift Center looking pretty spiffy.
I sorta ran out of the right sized containers for things, but I made do with what I had. I threw out the ragged gift bags and the tissue that was really crumpled. Who was I kidding? I'd never re-use those old things anyway! Grouping the small gifts made it easier to see what I have and what I need. It's nice to have "little somethings" on hand for last-minute gifts!
Today's Small Thing is to straighten up your gift wrap area. In just a few minutes it could look so good that you'll be calling it an official "Gift Center!" With Christmas and a bunch of Fall birthdays coming up, now I feel like I'm prepared to be generous and happy to get the gifts ready!
Would you like that in a gift bag or a box? I've got it right here....:)
POINTS: 40 generous points for spending a few minutes (limit yourself!) organizing
