2. Organize your ribbon collection on a paper towel holder.

It'll be easy to measure off the length of ribbon you need, and you won't have to keep all of your ribbon in a cluttered mess in a box. This tutorial shows you how to build your own, but you can also just use one from the dollar store.

6. Download GoodBudget to help keep track of expenses — whether you're tracking spending for a family or a group of roommates.
