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…

    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.

    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 .
