Next time you have a Birthday party, save all the gift bags you receive. Then you have a nice stockpile for future parties you attend. We usually receive enough at one party to supply us for an entire year. We have been doing this for years and haven’t bought bags in forever!
Just make sure to remove any gift cards that are attached. I picked up small gift cards for around $1 and use a hole punch to attach them to the bags. They look brand new!
This also works for other holidays and events too – Christmas, Baby Showers, and more!
TIP: Use an old storage container as a gift bag station. I have an old three drawer plastic container that works great! Top drawer – cards and bows. Second – tissue paper. Third – gift bags!
