Let’s organize those gift bags!

It may be convenient to repurpose all the gift bags we give and receive throughout the year, but it can be difficult to find where exactly to place them, especially during the ordinary times of the year. This week’s Happy Friday reader, Shirley, had this same scenario and decided to create an organized space for all her gift bags!

All Shirley used was a tension rod and a carabiner! Keep reading to see how she created an instant gift bag organizer.

I store my gift bags using a tension rod and carabiners. Then I can sort by size, color, and occasion like birthday, anniversary, etc.!

Thanks for this super simple yet convenient hack, Shirley! With the holiday season ending, I’m sure many of us weren’t sure where to put our gift bags! Because of you, we no longer have to waste our gift bags and have convenient safekeeping. 🙌

    Carabiner clips are so awesome! Maybe a good idea for a future post are all the cool uses for carabiner clips. (My # 1 use is on my keychain to clip my car keys to a loop on my purse so I never dig for keys.)

    I use this clip to hang hair ties in one spot, thru never get tangled, and everyone knows where to return the hairtie when they take it out of their hair!

    Great idea! I store my gifts bags on hangers and keep them in the guest room closet. Just put the string handle over the hanger hook and you’re good to go!

      That’s what I do too. I put the biggest one on the hanger like I’m hanging a shirt and put all the other bags inside of it.
