Pimp Yo' Presents Tip #5: use reusable {shopping bags, that is}

It's good for the earth, good for your wallet, and good for your schedule, as it only takes .003 seconds. If your default setting is giving a gift bag anyway, why not something they can take to the grocery store to carry home their bread and double stuffed Oreos in later?

Also, if I've said it once I've said it at least two times, it DOESN'T HAVE TO BE RED AND GREEN TO PASS AS CHRISTMAS WRAP. Truly.

Although you can certainly pop it in if you wanna.

Or fine, be like that and keep it all traditional. Target's signature red is your ticket to paradise, and don't those little logos on the tree kinda look like snow? 99 cents, baby.

Guess what else is 99 cents? Big ol' sorta fancy bags from Marshalls.


Come on - even dollar store bags cost more. A green poinsettia gets stuck on a piece of black construction paper for an oversized tag {only stitched around the edges because I can't watch TV without doing something} and hung by a ribbon covered clothespin since the handles were floppy and refused to cooperate.
