I have discovered The Dollar Store as a place to buy gift bags. I keep a drawer in the guest room dresser full of them. They are dollar for the large ones and some are 2 for a dollar. I have even gotten 4 for a dollar. No more paying two to five dollars for gift bags.
I have 2 gift bags full of assorted gift bags, one bag for birthday gift bags and one for baby and multi use gift bags. As I go to garage sales in the summer I pick them up for 25 cents each and, boy, can you find all kinds at garage sales. I look for the "like new" ones and have bought all sizes, in all patterns and colors. I also have colored tissue paper in another gift bag to use for covering the top of the gift. This way I can put more $ into the actual gift to give away, not the packaging.
