Countdown to Christmas 58 Days and Counting

Wrapping Paper Gift Supplies: Something you must try to cut cost on this holiday no time like the present to begin stocking up supplies for those homemade gift-wraps. Things to save to create great gift wrapping paper later: kid’s paintings and drawings, magazine pages, Sunday comics or special photos and of course that old favorite brown paper bag. You may also be able to find butcher paper in the art supply section of your favorite store on sale now that school supplies are still on sale.

 Use potato-stamp deigns in stars, hearts, or polka dots and if you have cookie cutter your imagination is endless. If you’re not the crafty type just remember to keep any gift wrap you receive in a gift. If you purchase glass wear in any store remember to save the tissue paper.

Dollars  stores often wrap their glass wear for customers in very decorative tissue paper so save where you can. Take advantage of free wrapping when ordering on line or in your high end stores like Dillard’s, Macys ,and Kohl’s if you hold any of these shopping card you can receive free professional wrapping. I still have the ornaments from gifts given to me years ago.

Keep an eye out for you drug store ads offering low cost wrapping supplies and sometimes offer of free tape or bows. Looking to store, these wrapping supplies check out Avon for a gift-wrap storage organizer this case holds ribbon, tape, scissors, and tags. Remember new Avon clients receive Free Shipping for a catalog and free samples go to
