You will inevitably end up with a few heaps of ribbon & wrapping paper from opened gifts. Set out some baskets or bins to organize the garbage as best you can. This will help keep your living room tidy, and prevent you from accidentally throwing away any gifts! Use one basket as the ribbon bin, where you can place ribbon scraps that can be given a second life! Use another larger bin as a catchall for anything recyclable: paper products, boxes, and plastics. Lastly, have one bin set out to collect any garbage that can’t be reused or recycled.
