Any suggestions? Right now I have pictures in albums and boxes. What's the best way to organize photos? The albums take up so much room, on the other hand it's easy to look through.
And I keep the tall rolls of wrapping paper for gifts in an umbrella stand but I don't like that for some reason. Doesn't look neat.

I’ve started making photo books instead of printing and putting in albums. I usually get 5-6 months in each book. I do them through Shutterfly and order it when there’s a code for free unlimited pages. Comes out to around $25 a book.

For wrapping paper, I keep them in the corner of a walk-in closet. Literally behind the clothing. It’s not perfectly neat and contained, but it’s behind clothing so out of sight out of mind. I don’t use wrapping paper often, so this works for me.

Something I heard of and thought was clever (but I didn't try- I'm happy with my dollar store garbage can in the corner of a closet with the rolls standing in there) - Hang a garment bag from a hanger on any closet rod and store the rolls in there.

About pictures, call me old fashioned, but there's just nothing like a good ol' photo album. Photo books are nice, and take much less space, but are less durable. Photo albums last forever!

I had an old over the door hanging organizer and I cut out the bottoms of part so the wrapping paper can hang vertically. (Like this kind of thing Over The Door Shoe Organizer, 16 Mesh Pockets Hanging Shoe Organizer+ 4 Large Mesh Storage Shoe Rack Holder with 4 Hooks for Bathroom, Bedroom, Closet (21.6 X 62 in) https://a.co/d/1rBtEf5)
