Brilliant!

I have been putting off wrapping presents because, well, I hate doing it. All that tape and ribbon and pressure and I just suck at making corners and getting things neat and tidy.

So I had an idea. A brilliant idea, even if I do say so myself.

All the gifts that are being given to adults are going in to re-usable grocery bags, either from Whole Foods (for big gifts) or Stop and Shop (for smaller gifts). I will be green and will save my sanity, all in one swell foop.


Sometimes I am a fucking genius.

Go green! What an excellent idea. Wish I had thought of it for the teacher gifts. I *will* steal this idea... another time...

Definite genius! I'm totally stealing that idea next year!

Great idea. I thought my idea of wrapping everything in the Sunday comics was good, but yours of making the wrap a gift as well takes the cake.

Fab idea! Thanks for the tip - and for the link of the pi plate. i see a Father's Day gift from there in my future and I went on and made a huge wishlist!

That is brilliant! I love that idea! For our family I was using felt Christmasy bags, but what a phenomenal idea for gifts you are giving to other people! Thanks for sharing! I hope everyone steals this idea. LOL

My dad's organic, fair-trade goodies are going in a reusable bag, actually. But mostly, I reuse gift bags - we pass them around the family .
