Day 1 - Paper Bags


I love brown paper bags! Especially if they are made of 100% post consumer recycled content like you get at Whole Foods. Now I normally take my own recyclable cloth bags but every once in awhile I forget. As my friend Betsy says shoot for progress not perfection. So in my progress of trying and desperately looking for my roll of craft paper that I must have used up, I came across my few brown paper bags. Guess what? Cut apart they make the perfect craft paper wrapping for shipping. This is not a unique solution but one we shouldn't forget and saves you about $4.95 and a trip to the store.
