Birthday parties usually leave the gift-receiver with a stock of several usable, decorative gift bags. Dollar Tree has great deals on unique gift bags and one can easily end up with 6 bags for under $4 from there! What to do with all those bags?

The first suggestion is to hang a plastic organizer that has shelves in a closet, such as a closet in an office or one that has room. Put folded gift bags on shelves per holiday or occasion, such as one shelf for Christmas, one for Birthday, Baby Shower, Plain Colors, and Small Bags (3"x4"). Label shelves for ease of use.

A second option for organizing an array of gift bags is to file gift bags in a cardboard box and store on the floor or a shelf in a closet. An alternate is to store gift bags in a plastic Tupperware box or a decorative box that is large enough for your gift bags. File the holiday bags with like themes. Label the box.

Third, if the above options wont work for your home, simply hang similar gift bags (such as all birthday bags) on a plastic hanger and then in a closet. Use different hangers for various gift bag uses. Label each hanger per occasion, such as Birthday, Graduation, Floral, Christmas, etc.

Each gift bag organizing idea helps preserve the gift bags with little space needed.

Store gift bags folded flat in a see-through plastic storage container according to size, type of gift bag, season, etc. Stack containers on closet shelf and you will be able to see the bags easily. It keeps bags neat and reusable.

To store christmas gift bags and ribbon use a cardboard box (like one that reams of copy paper come in). Put the gift bags on the bottom and the ribbons on top. Mark the end of the box. This type of box is stackable.

Organize your plastic bags. Take an empty soda fridge pack, the ones that hold 12 cans of soda, and cover it with wrapping paper, fabric, wallpaper or any design you want to match your decor. Stuff the plastic bags into the opening where the soda cans come out. It will fit nicely into your pantry or cupboard or even on the counter. It will keep all those plastic bags from overrunning your kitchen.

Use Soda Can Box To Organize Bags

Great idea! I bought one of those little fabric bag holders, which work fine, but the pop box is even better. I will try it tonight! (11/30/2007)

Use Soda Can Box To Organize Bags

When organizing my kitchen cabinets a couple of weeks ago, I took 2 empty 12 pack pop containers, using one I put all my long stuff in like the foil, gallon size baggies, wax paper, etc, fits like a glove. When I need one of them I just slide out and great.

Also used the other one for the smaller stuff like brown sugar, etc. Seems like getting to stuff easily had become a problem...so just slide out for a second and much easier. They say you can use old retired kleenex boxes which I have done to put the leftover grocery bags in. Cute idea to cover with xmas paper. (12/01/2007)

Use Soda Can Box To Organize Bags

I use a box that I bought something in that has a round hole in the front, which is perfect for pulling bags out or putting them in. I keep it in my closet and have used it for years. It's wonderful to know where my bags are when I need them and not be over run by them. Never thought about covering the box to make it look nice though. Guess I'm just too overwhelmed with other stuff. (12/21/2007)
