HOW TO STORE ALL THAT TISSUE PAPER
I think I have a problem with tissue paper. I cannot toss it.
Even if it is crinkled with torn edges. Even if the glittered tissue has lost its sparkle.
Not even when I can buy fresh sheets at the dollar store.
Sidenote: I just found this MADE is USA tissue paper!
Naturally, I blame my parents who are second-generation repurpose enthusiasts.
Please note the sarcasm in that sentence! My parents read my blog every weekend on The Weekend Edit.
If you follow me on The Weekend Edit newsletter you know I love to repurpose stuff.
It was a game-changer when I learned how to paint this.
So with Christmas tucked away for the next nine months I needed to wrap up the paper stashed in gift bags and in a dresser drawer in the basement.
HOW TO STORE TISSUE PAPER LIKE A BOSS
- MAGAZINE HOLDERS
I had an assortment of cardboard magazine organizers like these. What I loved about magazine holders is depending on how I stored these from the front (or back depending on your perspective) it looks like a row of magazine storage containers.
Neat and tidy!
It’s only when you turn the box around that you can the tissue paper.
I folded the tissue paper into each bin.
In my retirement, I might organize the tissue by color or holiday, but for now, I was thrilled to get the paper off the floor and onto a shelf.
STORAGE IDEAS FOR TISSUE PAPER
Speaking of shelves, the magazine cardboard organizers can easily be stored in a :
- laundry room
- on top of an upper cabinet
And the best part is the tissue paper is hiding in plain sight. It’s just waiting for the next birthday, holiday, or just because gift.
And all those bows! You can’t separate the bows from the tissue. That would be like storing salt away from the pepper.
I had an extra magazine holder and tossed my assortment of new and used bows.
SOLVES A PROBLEM
Unlike gift boxes, magazine storage boxes sit upright.
If I stacked my tissue paper I would never get past the top box before I ran to the store to grab fresh sheets.
The magazine storage boxes are the easiest organizing project with a huge sense of accomplishment too.
When I originally bought my magazine holders I spent too much money on similar boxes at the Container Store with printed patterns. Now? I bought neutral cardboard, build it yourself, holders.

WEEKLY IDEAS STRAIGHT TO YOUR INBOX
Such a clever idea! Mine is with all the gift bags and boxes. I need to organize!
I make my own magazine holder/boxes from cereal boxes cut to shape and covered with contact paper or decoupage. I use these boxes for soooo many things
I try to repurpose too! We just don’t have cereal boxes like when my kids were little!
Thank ou Theresa, those are great ideas! laura
What a wonderful idea! What did you use for a template? Most of my boxes are family size.
Thank you for this idea!! I am doing this!!!
tHANK YOU Cindy! Have a great week! laura
I know people don’t iron today but I iron my tissue paper to use it again before storing. ironing gives it a Crisp feel again.
I recycle everything I think I can use later. Some people think I’m crazy, but when they see what I can do with my recycling they change their minds 😂.
We don’t have cereal boxes anymore either…but I buy printed boxes like yours at $ tree all the time. Just fold together..
