Its that time of season when we need to look for ways to store wrapping paper. We bought this coffee bin mainly because we like old advertising. But my husband looked at it and said you know I think  all your rolls of Christmas paper would fit in it.
My husband made a top to the coffee bin so I could display items on it plus have the nice advertising label always displayed.
My wrapping paper fits perfectly in it and I dont have to figure out anymore where to store it, such as under beds, in closets, etc. etc.
Another great find was this old library shipping box that we got at an auction for $15.00. We just liked the box by itself but my husband came to the rescue again and said I think our DVDs will fit inside. 
It was like the box was made for the DVDs. Love it when things work out that way and we can use our finds for other things besides just sitting there.
