Hoarding gift wrappers and gift bags | Threaded Roads


Every year I unintentionally recycle gift wrappers and gift bags. This is mostly due to the fact that I’m a partial, dare I say it, hoarder. There I said it.

I don’t do it on purpose though. Most of the time I don’t even realize that I have so many wrappers and gift bags tucked away into the depths of my cupboards.

In the past when I went Christmas shopping I would find wrappers and bags that were so cute or just too adorable. I had to get them because they were the perfect fit for a gift that I got for a family member or a friend.

Over time I end up with so many of them. My cupboards were and still are chock full of them in every shade of green, red and gold.

Slowly but surely the amount started to dwindle as I gave them away year by year. Slowly but surely.

But, my hoarding tendencies didn’t stop.

Instead of buying new gift bags, I redirected my need to keep all things cute by keeping all the wrappers and gift bags I got from other people.

It’s an uncontrollable urge. Cute things get me every single time! Unfortunately this means my cupboards are filling up all the time.

So now I upcycle my wrappers and bags. I carefully remove any notes written to me and repackage it so well that you wouldn’t know that I got that same wrapper last year!

Of course I would never give someone the same gift box they gave me! I’m not that crazy! Although it is pretty crazy that I recycle gift wrappers and gift boxes.

But you can’t let such cuteness go to waste! All those little reindeers and fat Santa Claus’ wrappers need a home. They need to be shared with the world!
