Wrap Presents in Reusable Grocery Bags

Instead of using wrapping paper or paper gift bags I use reusable grocery tote bags. I watch for bags which do not have printed advertisements on them. I do not pay more than $1.00 a bag. To match the occasion I can decorate as elaborate or uncomplicated as I want.

Instead of using tissue paper I watch for cloth items to fill around the gift such as kitchen towels for wedding shower, cloth baby items, fancy crochet for wedding - think "out of the box".

I'm always looking for decorating ideas and bags at a bargain. I found 10 bags for $10.00 in different colors, made with recycled materials, and free shipping on a online shopping site. There was even white for wedding showers. Just think how many trees you can save and your wrapping can be used to eliminate using plastic and paper grocery bags.
