I pretty much never have the right kind of gift wrap when I need it.
Luckily I have the unique ability to come up with lots of ghetto, I mean creative alternatives.
Our latest favorite go to wrapping paper is Trader Joe bags.
Just cut of the bottom and the handles, flip over (so what you see is the plain inside of the bag), wrap and decorate.
Sometimes I let the kids draw pictures on the front or go crazy with stickers.
This time we used some washi tape and crayon.
Easy, inexpensive, environmentally friendly.
Did I mention easy?
