After the time I was late for a party – I’m working on not being perpetually late, per this post – and had to stop by the grocery store to buy an exorbitantly-priced (and very ugly, I might add) gift bag for a present, I knew I had to do better. I mean, that thing was u-g-l-y you-ain’t-got-no-alibi ugly. Fugly. Butt ugly. You get the picture. Now, when I’m in Target or the like, I hit up the gift wrap clearance section, and store finds in clear boxes (see this post). For smaller spaces, tossing everything in a single, larger box or drawer would also work.
