How much of the wrapping paper were you able to save for another year? I didn't get much this year, we used gift bags and those can be reused. I have bottles for the recycler and a few cans. I think we did well this year. How about you?

We tend to use gift bags anymore and a gift bag that was used last year got reused again this year so nothing had to be spent nor did we have to go out and buy another. What wrapping paper we did get was pretty torn so that really can't be resused.

Hi Savvypat, I didn't have much wrapping paper that could be reused but I have already put the rest into the recycling bin. I had no cans but a few bottles which are in recycling and all the peel from the veg has gone onto the compost of too the rabbits if cabbage or carrots. I have cardboard sorted ready to take to recycling centre so there is in fact very little to go to landfill my end really. Huggles. Ellie :D

Hi Savvypat, Appreciate best response. Dustbin men came today and it was refreshing to see that I only had the one bag compared to numerous from neighbours. Huggles Ellie :D

We don't recycle the wrapping paper because it's usally torn to shreds by the time the kids get done with it. I do re-use the bows, boxes and gift bags though.

No I don't have the habit of collecting re usable things as you are doing. But I just reduced myself in using the plastic materials to larger extent... I recommend mylotters to be as eco-friendly as you can.... Happy mylotting

Err I'll be honest I don't keep bottles or cans what I usually do is just reuse plastic bags. All organic waste we throw it in an empty lot to decompose. I really would want to keep used paper for recycling but I really don't know where to take them and we don't have room for stacking. I admire you for being so caring for our environment.
