I don't use very much waxed paper-usually just for crafts or to make hamburgers on for the grill, so I don't like buying it.
Instead of paying for boxes to wrap presents in, I save boxes from cereal, oatmeal, crackers, microwave popcorn; just about any kind of box and put my presents in them.
I use empty cereal boxes to put shredded paper in.You can close the top to keep it contained, and it will break down in the environment.
I find myself throwing out cardboard cereal boxes and things like pot pie boxes, etc, and I hate doing it, but I don't know how to recycle them as fast as we use that stuff.
Ways to reuse cereal boxes and the bag that comes inside the box. Post your ideas.
