This month’s tip comes from our reader Janine Kinnison.
Save time, money, and the earth’s resources during the holidays by using large, reusable cloth drawstring bags to ‘wrap’ your loved ones gifts in instead of wrapping them individually with wrapping paper. Use material in a different holiday print for each loved one.
Janine started with a larger bag (3’ x 4’) when her kids were younger and gifts were bulky. Once her children reached the teenage years, she cut off the bottom of the bag and re-sewed it to make them smaller.
If you don’t sew, hire a friend who does to make the bags for you.
How will you spend the extra hours saved by not wrapping every item individually and then cleaning up wrapping paper and ribbons?
Thanks Janine for sharing this great time-saving tip.
