Did you Buy Christmas Wrapping Paper This Year?
« on: December 23, 2013, 11:25:47 am »
Money is tight here. I asked family members if I could get them some wrapping paper for their Christmas gifts that they are giving, they said no and reminded me that their gift still helps with share, celebrate and remind you of our Lord's birth, and told me it is a waste of natural resources. God loves me this I know. 

Merry Christmas

Depending on your family, you could always make them cookies or something.  Or, it's a little late, but do something hand made next year. 

Honestly, that's really bugs me.  Perhaps I read it wrong but it sounds so mean to say your gift isn't good enough basically.

I didn't buy any wrapping paper this year.  I have enough to last me for probably 4-5 Christmases.  Every year after Christmas I usually can't resist buying wrapping paper after they put it on very low clearance prices.  I've done this a few years in a row so I am now loaded with wrapping paper lol!  Same with tissue paper and gift boxes and bags.  Anybody else do this, or is it just me?

I hve a lot of wrapping paper that i have bought over the years at sales prices like 80% off. I will never use it all. Sometimes i give give some a way. I took several bags and boxes this year of Christmas decorations, wrapping paper, ribbons and decorations down to the ministry of hope. They could use it there. They sell a lot of stuff but mostly just give it to those that cannot afford to buy it. What a great Christmas presents to me. Knowing some one else could use it.

Nope - I had plenty left over from last year.  I always buy after Christmas when it's on sale.

I'm probably still good for another 2-3 years.  If I see something nice on sale after the holidays, I'll pick it up real cheap - and these rolls tend to last me 3-4 years.

In a pinch, you can do what my brother did one year - stick the present in a brown paper grocery bag and staple/tape it shut.   ;D

I didn't mean to state that.  All my gifts received or given is all joyous And I mean (no-matter-what-it-is) ALL of them.  Some of my family members really don't buy Christmas wrapping paper- please not be so serious when posting a happy somethings.

I could use some wrapping paper right now I ran out will get more I guess I have to. A better item might be something inexpensive to put on the tree most stores are having sales and the 99cent store has some cute things and tons of xmas bags.

I always buy wrapping paper after Christmas when it is on sale for 90% off so I rarely ever have to buy it during the Christmas season.

I have lots of wrapping paper from past years which I buy after the holiday when it is on clearance.

I also re-use gift bags and tissue paper and gift boxes and bows.
