Step Into Our Giftwrap

August 26, 2011 at 6:15 pm 6 comments

Every customer we work with has some form of gift bag/giftwrap collection – predominately stored in basements and bedroom closets. 

These collections include, but are certainly not limited to, random pieces of ribbon; ripped and folded sparkly tissue; gift bags galore; gift tags and wrapping paper (new and preserved).  

Ack!

Holiday and seasonal wrap is an entirely separate blog. Stay tuned.

Gift paraphernalia adds up quickly. And all those seemingly little pieces result in a large clutter puzzle if they’re not given away or recycled frequently. 

Invest in a dedicated storage box, basket, bin or drawer for the items worth preserving and commit to purging every few months.  Keep only the gift bags you love (and will love to re-gift) and forego hanging onto to them “just in case” one is ever needed.

      That’s incredible Barb! We’re happy to hear it. We definitely find tiny steps to be less overwhelming when it comes to de-cluttering.

    Thanks for the tips! I’m getting rid of a bunch of books. What’s the best way to dontate them?

      Hey Sandi – we strongly suggest donating books to libraries, second hand book stores, BookCrossing.com and anti-illiteracy programs (communities throughout Ontario have a “Project Read” Literacy Network). Leaving books curbside in a box labeled “Free” is also effective.

      Happy De-cluttering!
