3. Neaten your gift wrapping zone. A good deal of clutter comes from not knowing what we have and buying another (tape, ribbon) rather than finding the one we do have and using it. Take the time now to straighten out your gift packaging area, and not only will you be well prepared for the next gift you need to wrap, but sorting things out will save room to boot. Keep like with like, sorting small items like tape rolls and embellishments in a shoebox, and standing rolls of wrap upright in a bin.
