I wrapped all our Christmas presents this weekend. I stuck with one roll of wrapping paper so that I could finish it, and I did! I still have another roll which is part used. Once that is used up (next year? How ridiculous storing it for YEARS) I will buy simple gold / red / silver paper which can be used year round. No more girls birthday paper, boys birthday paper, and two coordinating Christmas prints.
I also found myself not wanting to give gifts in a nice Christmas gift bag I got from someone else, because then I won't be able to use it another year. Huh, what? Use it! Get it out of the house. If I'm distraught next year that I won't have a pretty bag to use for the gifts, I can buy one. But I certainly won't keep this one to use, because if I'm refusing to use it now, when will I decide the time is right?
I have a tape dispenser on a piece of elastic that distributes one pre-cut length of tape at a time. It's really good, I like using it. But, I only use it once a year (it doesn't seem worth getting it out for a single gift, and this is the only time of year I wrap a bunch), so, when it ran out of tape, instead of adding one more specialised thing to my shopping list, I stuck it in the donate box and used my standard tape dispenser instead.
I tried to use up all my Christmas bows, and resolved not to replace them. I have plenty of real ribbon I save if I want to decorate gifts. If I don't care enough to tie that properly then I don't care enough about nicely decorated gifts to waste the worlds resources on shiny stick on bows (not criticising those who use them, it's just I don't care enough to put real effort into it, so it seems silly to bother at all).
Even though all my Christmas stuff (gift bags, labels, bows, ribbons) was all corralled in one larger gift bag, having that small corner free now feels great. Whatever doesn't get used on the last few gifts I will donate.
