I love Christmas and I have large family and buy for everyone because I love Christmas. I use to spend hours wrapping presents then they invented Christmas bags (which I buy on after Christmas clearance), these bags however require lots of tissue paper for stuffing. A few Christmas' ago, I purchased a few of the plastic table cloths on clearance after Christmas for only 25 cents each at Wal Mart and I wondered what can I do with these. Well I decided I'd cut small ones into 4 equal sections and large ones into 8 or 10 and use them instead of tissue paper. It was great they are durable and come in great colors and I can even reuse them after Christmas for next Christmas. Last year I went to a dollar store in my local area and got these plastic table cloths for 10 cents each. This is an average of about 89 cents savings per gift on tissue sometimes more and I've even used these as stuffing for shipping packages another huge savings.
