Today, (yea!) we have multiple dollar stores to choose from. They have the best wrapping paper and party supplies for - you guessed it - $1.00. It's where most people go for wrapping items and I'm no different. I still have paper left from last year, but I did buy one roll this year that matches the ones I had in the stockpile.
I'm happy to say that with a ball of twine (I can't remember where I got it), two rolls of 3M brand tape from the dollar store, and a few rolls of paper, I'm off to a good start. I'm also using tags I got free from a coupon Hallmark sent me. I wouldn't use tags unless they are free or under .25. The normal procedure is to hand write the recipient's name right on the package. So for a total of $5.00 I will wrap gifts for eighteen people. The grandkids will get more than one gift under the tree at my house, which makes it about twenty five gifts for a cost of .21 cents a gift. I like the primitive American look which is enhanced with using twine to replace ribbon.
