RealSimple.com: Storage Ideas for Small Spaces

Set Up a Gift-Wrap and Craft Cupboard

This spot will always look a bit…creative. Choose a unit with doors so you can cover up the chaos.

1. Use tension rods to hold gift wrap, and pare down to two rolls—one festive, one sophisticated. Paterson two-door cabinet, $349, crateandbarrel.com.

2. Keep wrapping supplies together: Stack ribbons on a paper-towel holder, hang scissors from a hook, and store cards in plain sight.

3. Put tiny items, like beads, in glassjars. When screwed to the underside of a shelf, the jars won’t go missing. Use larger jars for unwieldy items, like rubber stamps.

4. Place markers and chalk in wide tins that make it easy for kids to see all colors at once. Pantone metal boxes by Seletti, $25 each, pantone.com.

5. Store projects such as half-knit scarves in open baskets so you’ll know where to find them. They’ll stay dust-free behind closed doors. Urbino small bin, $7, containerstore.com.
