It's Time to Open the Gifts!

Before opening all those gaily wrapped packages, here are a few hints to get you through the mountains of ribbon, stuffing, and wrapping.

·       Set a box aside to collect the reusable ribbons, bows, and other package decorations.
·       Most gifts boxes can be flattened and reused throughout the year for other items. Recycle boxes that can't be reused.
·       With all the excitement, people usually tear through the gift wrap, so set aside a large box or bag to collect the torn gift wrap. If there are large uncrumpled pieces of wrap, consider using those pieces for wrapping future gifts.
