I agree there is so much waste around this time before and after Christmas. Food is the worst so if there are leftovers we tend to have more meals from it which you need to be a bit creative. I reuse giftbags which are always good condition but not wrapping paper as most of the time they are ripped. My daughter makes scrapbooks and albums for her friends and buy items from bargain stores and is creative on that side of things. Unwanted presents should be either donated or given to someone suitable and every year we have a Kris Kringle with the inlaws which cuts down wastage and its more fun as well.
