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.
We re-use our gift bags which is not unusual. But since we can't "re-use" the tag and using the sticky tags to put on a gift bag ruins the bag, I came up with this solution. I purchased from the dollar store some dry erase labels. Now I can leave the labels on the gift bag and erase them each time I use the gift bag.
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.
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.
