Wrapping paper. Bows. Ribbons. It can all add around the holidays as you are wrapping gifts, but it doesn’t have to. Tip #7 is to Decorate Presents for Less. This really just involves being a tad creative. Here are a few ways:

  • One way to help save on wrapping paper is to use the comic section from the newspaper. It is colorful and fun, and kids will enjoy seeing the characters on their presents.
  • You can also use shoe boxes and decorate them with stickers (we always have a ton of stickers!) or bows, ribbon, etc.
  • Don’t throw away gently used bags or tissue paper. We have had some Christmas bags which have lasted for years!
  • And of course, another great way to save is to go to the after Christmas sales. Target has a lot of merchandise 75%-90% off. I usually stock up on more than just wrapping paper at this sale, it is also a great time to get some ornaments or other decorations for the following year.

Check out the Frugal Living Community for even more suggestions, and let me know how you save on decorating presents.
