Save On Gift Wrapping

This Sparked Me!

I reuse christmas bags from the year before if they are still in good condition. I also use christmas table cloths to wrap some of the gifts that are too big to wrap. I just drape them over the gift , and tuck the ends under the gift.

    I reuse gift bags too; not only does it save money, but some are too pretty to throw away! We have some bags that been passed around various family members for a few years now, lol!

    I also do this! Plus the tablecloths! I also sometimes use a fleece blanket to cover a large item and the person who gets the gift gets the blanket too!!!

    I reuse the bags too. I like the idea of the tablecloths. I have a Dollar Tree by me that sells Christmas tablecloths for $1 a piece, so i may be checking there. Thanks for the idea!
