One day I noticed the paper gift bags were costing more than the cloth shopping bags grocery stores are now offering!

Since then I have made the gift bag part of the gift I am giving.

I either fill up the cloth bag with my gift and add tissue paper, or buy some cellophane bags (3/$1 at the dollar store) to put the gift in first, then place it in the cloth shopping bag.

There are all kinds of cloth shopping bags available now, some even seasonal!

Since many stores have decided to start charging 5-25 cents each for their plastic bags, I think people will appreciate my reusable gift bags more and more.
