I am the worst at having wrapping paper, cards, and bows around.  Many times I am running out to the store right before a party to get one (or all) of those items.   You can ask my kids how many times I’ve wrapped a birthday gift in the car because I am too embarrassed to tell you.  I decided to get organized because I realized I was spending entirely too much time making special trips out to buy cards and wrapping paper.  I bought these cute flowers and card to help celebrate my daughters birthday last week!

I was always searching for gift wrap and other supplies until I decided to get organized. Here are some great gift giving supply organization tips.

Gift Giving Supply Organization

  1. Get a paper organizer.  I had and old Christmas one that was half empty in our storage closet and decided to start utilizing it for it’s intended purpose, finally.  I gathered tape and extra scissors and made sure those were in there, which is also another area where I waste a lot of time on scavenger hunts.  There were a few bows and a gift bag under my bed and added those.

Make Gift Giving Easier2.  Purchase needed supplies.  I never have cards.  When I was doing my regular shopping at Walmart I discovered they have Hallmark cards starting at only $.47!  At this price you can really stock up (which I did).  I bought enough birthday cards to last me at least 6 months and then I also stocked up on some thank you cards to give the teachers for the end of the school year.  I also made sure that I had plenty of wrapping paper in my inventory and brought a few additional rolls.

3. Make a list of birthdays.   I made a separate list of family birthday I knew I had to buy.  This helped out a ton because I knew what was coming up.  It made budgeting easier and I was never late with a gift.  I hung it on the refrigerator.

Now I’m ready for the next party.  I don’t know why I didn’t do this sooner.  I have cards and wrapping paper for adults and kids.  You won’t be finding me leaving for a party early to stop at the store for those things anymore.

You can see everything that Hallmark has to offer at the Collections from Hallmark website.  They have items for every occasion and from kids to adults.  Everything is in one place.  The only thing I have to worry about now is the gift I’m going to buy and I know I have everything else I need.  How many cards will you buy on your next shopping trip to Walmart?  I bet you’ll stock up too.

    Great post on keeping your gift giving stuff in order and I also love that Walmart has the .47 cent card collection. These cards make it easier and more affordable to make sure you don’t miss any of those special and important days!
