    I started converting our gift wrap last year and I’m collecting gift bags instead. I don’t mean the gift bags that you see commonly in the giftwrap section (although I do always keep these when received and reuse them to pass gifts along to others). I am talking about acquiring nice bags to put presents into like a bunch of tiny Santa bags under the tree. Amazon has started using these for their gift giving options, so we’ve received several that way over the years from relatives sending gifts from afar. We have a nice collection now and it makes the pile of gifts so much fun under the tree. When done, they all get packed away in the largest sack and will be used for next year as well.

      I have not heard of that but that sounds awesome! Thank you for sending that information. I will definitely look into that for I am always looking for different ways to reduce waste.
