Works for Me!

My idea for Works for Me Wednesday is organizing gifts with wrapping paper.

I get different colors of wrapping paper. Gifts that have to be had for Matt's families gathering are all wrapped in red and white striped. My families gifts are in green holly. Brae's gifts in power ranger wrapping, Britt's in snowmen, etc. That way when it is time to go to someone houses, etc. I know what color the paper for that gathering is and grab. The kids sort it out this way much easier. I still place name tags on them but this is a quick and easy way to organzie the gifts at a glance.

Now, that's a great idea! We go to SEVERAL places during the holidays, and I spend way too much time under the tree, trying to find which gift goes where. I think I'll try it your way this time! :)
