I Know most of you don't even want to think about the Holidays! Christmas is getting close and it is time to start preparing for the Holidays. I am a planner and with Christmas being only 14 weeks away I have been trying to come up with some fun Frugal ideas. I will be posting periodically different ideas on gifts and ways to save money during the Holiday season.
This week my idea is about gift wrapping. Gift Wrapping can be just as expensive as the gift itself, when you are wrapping multiple gifts the cost can add up fast! I have lots of fun cheap ideas for gift wrapping like my recycled gift tags HERE. I am not usually a gift bag person, I prefer to wrap my gifts in paper, it makes the gift more exciting for kids to tear into. For my adult family members this year instead of wrapping there gifts in wrapping paper I decided to use Reusable Shopping Bags.
I am so excited about this Idea, I love these bags. Just about every store has there own version of these bags. I will most likely purchase my bags from Target, they look the most festive. The cost is around $1.00 a bag depending on where you buy your bags. Use these bags just like you would a normal gift bag stuff it with tissue paper add some ribbon and a gift tag and presto you have a beautiful gift. The great thing about this Idea is its like getting two gifts because you can use the bag over and over again. It Also is better for the environment :)
What is your Idea?
