Forget wasting money on wrapping paper that ends up in the bin – this mum’s hack saves $$$ and the planet at the same time!
If you find yourself cringing at the waste of paper that has become synonymous with Christmas, one clever mum has shared a hack that means you will never have to worry about binning expensive wrapping paper ever again! Best of all you can purchase everything you need for this incredible hack from the ever popular Kmart for just $1.60 per parcel.
Already In Your Kitchen
You might be thinking that this hack involves an innovative new product but you’d be wrong. Kmart sells a pack of three tea towels for just $5. That means each one is less than $2. What does this have to do with Christmas wrapping you might ask? Well this clever mum’s hack involves folding the tea towel around the gift like a normal piece of gift paper before securing it with twine. No sticky tape, no scissors, no mess. Best of all when you’re finished unwrapping your presents, you have a supply of new tea towels that will no doubt get a workout after Christmas lunch.
A Gift Giving Development
This genius hack isn’t just suitable for Christmas and you don’t just have to use tea towels. You can wrap birthday presents or housewarming gifts in a similar way – you save on paper and your friend/child/partner gets a new beach towel or scarf in the process. Why didn’t we think of this before?
This mum definitely thought outside the box and we think it’s a great idea. Who wants to spend money on something that is just going to end up crumpled in the bin anyway?
