The following Everyday Savings Tip comes from, Jaime:
I reuse my gift bags and even the tissue paper. If the tissue paper isn't badly crumbed I will fold it nicely to be reused later. I have an old dresser that I converted into a gift bag station and the drawers are organized by occasion: Christmas, birthday, paper, other holidays, tissue paper and parties.
When I need a bag and some paper I just head to my station and pull out what I need. I haven't bought a bag or paper in YEARS, saving me tons of money!!!
