I created a special space for storing tubes of gift wrap and ribbon. I put a shower curtain rod 4 feet up from the floor in my storage closet. Then, using old pantyhose, I put a tube of gift wrap or ribbon in each leg and tie it using ribbon at the top. Then, I hung the pair over a hanger, one tube on each side of the hook of the hanger. When it's time to use the gift wrap, all I have to do is cut the ribbon and slide the tubes out. This saves room for items that need to be stored in boxes.
