• A few months back, we were out-of-town-guests at a party and didn’t have a card to go with our gift. I had to run in a grocery store and almost cried when I saw the prices. Seems so silly when they just get recycled.

    • Isn’t it? Especially when my nephews were born, I started to realize what gift wrap actually is: a barrier that gets in the way. I’m all about reusing their gift bags, too. Mr. P has received the same birthday bag for three years running now! Not sure he’s noticed…or cares 😉

    I also use the comic pages for wrappign paper when giving a “wrapped” gift! I do peruse the Dollar Tree for cards, toiletries and other items – I don’t always walk out with soemthing, but when I do I know I saved more than a buck 🙂

  2. Definitely! Cards, gift wrap, and toothpaste! I also pick up some neat things for science projects with kids at school. Since our budgets are so high (OK – they are NON-EXISTENT) – the Dollar Tree is a life saver for teachers!

  3. Girl, you know we are on the same page! Dollar tree is the bomb. I’ve gotten most of my Christmas fpgifts there for my cousins – mani pedi stuff. We get cereal there and Brownberry bread that $4 in the regular store!! I can’t gush enough!!
