Works for me Wednesday … gift wrapping

December 16, 2009 at 12:42 am (Works for Me Wednesday)

Most every Christmas (and birthdays, mother’s days, father’s days, etc.) I do all the shopping … even for my husband’s family.  What a slacker he is!!!  Kidding.  Sort of.  I am also the one to wrap the presents.  So when it’s time to load up the car with presents for each family he doesn’t have a clue what’s going where!  Many years ago, I decided to dumb it down for him … by paper!  

I usually buy 3 different gift wrap rolls in coordinating colors.  I’ll wrap all his family’s presents in one color.  My family’s in another & our personal little family’s presents in a third.  That way, when we’re walking out the door I can just tell him to grab all the wrapping paper that looks like “this”!    

Pretty easy, huh?!?  

It works for me!  For more Works-For-Me Wednesday or to link up your own tips, visit We Are That Family!
