Storage Dilemma: You don’t have a designated spot for your crafting and gift wrapping supplies and waste time searching your home for all the essentials. Solution: Gather, sort and group similar items and use drawers, bins, rods or a cart to keep everything organized. If space is tight, set up a mini station in a corner of your home office or inside a closet.
