Storage is a HUGE issue in our apartment and we've never really found a satisfactory solution to the storage of larger wrapping paper rolls either.
This is about the only thing we have found that was close to working, but have yet to buy one.

I'll try to look it up and get back to you if I find anything out.
The one we have, we got from Wal-Mart, and at first it looked like the lid was really tall to have room for long rolls but we didn't look much harder at it. My mother-in-law bought it and got it home, we found that it's just an extra spot for ribbons and bows and still only hold the 30" rolls.

But aren't gift bags wonderful? We also use gift bags and they circulate through the family so they get used again and again.
We have one of those and you're right, the space for rolls is limited, only about 8, and we have quite a few more than that. Maybe that's a clue we should use what we have lol.

Same here! I can't tell you how many bags we've recycled in the last 4 years, between birthdays, Christmas, Mother's/Father's day, etc.. We haven't had to buy too many bags in a while unless the gift is an odd size that we don't have a bag for.
