Do you hate paying $4 for a fancy schmancy gift back, ribbon, and tissue paper only to worry about keeping it uncrinkled until it's thrown away? Or do you have so many gift bags to re-use but still never have one the right size or theme? A friend gave me a great idea!! Use a reusable shopping bag. It costs as little as $0.99 and certainly no more than a flimsy paper gift bag. So many grocery and discount stores have gotten into making cute shopping bags so they look great. They're great for groceries and gifts!!
