Got Gifts?.....Now What?
Now that you've taken care of buying your Holiday gifts, now what?
You need to prepare them for the giving.
For most people, that means wrapping them or otherwise hiding them inside of some container and decorating the outside.
I'd like to direct you to a post I wrote last December about frugal Gift Wrapping.
Before you go spend a gazillion dollars on something that will destroy old growth forests, then the product will get destroyed itself and thrown away shortly after purchase, go have a read. Buying new gift wrap is NOT frugal, no matter how little you pay for it, when there are viable alternatives.
Save the green in your wallet AND the green in nature and say NO!
There's a brief history at the link on the story of wrapping paper in this country to entertain you as well.
The link is HERE.
It's an oldie but a goody. ;-)
