Laura’s Cheap Trick #81

Oh Yeah – Save that Wrapping Paper!

Yes, I grew up in a family that carefully slit open the tape and took great care to save the wrapping paper and bows.  I swear while my grandmother was alive we all received presents with paper that was around since WW2.  As I grew up and began to watch more television I saw that the real way to open a present (aka: how they do it on TV) was to tear it open as fast a possible and scream delight.  As I age, I see that there is joy in savoring the moment and remembering the gifts past that were wrapped in the paper from Christmas past.  (And yes you can even iron your paper to make it nice and crisp and wrinkle free.)

Check out this fun tip on Re-using wrapping paper.
