When you get a gift in a gift bag, do you save it? Gift bags are almost expensive as greeting cards!
I take extra care to not damage any bags so I can save them. I also intercept them as they are opened at the kids’ birthday parties so they don’t damage them. I have gift bags in all shapes, sizes, colors and themes! I just fold them up neatly and store them in my closet in the largest gift bag I have. If you had an underbed box, those are great for folding them storing them flat in.
I’m also not ashamed to say that I save tissue paper that hasn’t been too wrinkled! You can fold it back up on it’s original fold lines and store it. If you get something wrapped in a shirt box, the tissue stays pretty un-wrinkled and any wrinkles it does get can be hidden when you scrunch it up and stuff it in a gift bag!
