Alternative to Typical Christmas Packing and Shipping

Posted on December 17th, 2012 by Discount Debbie

Christmas is just around the corner and we have packages being delivered daily. When you live thousands of miles away from your family, this is how it goes. However, we¬†received¬†our packages from my brother and his family recently and I just had to share how they did it. It’s such a Thrifty way of doing it. Shipping is done by weight unless you do the stuff it in a flat rate plan. That wasn’t an option for my brother so instead of buying boxes that we would most likely just throw in the dump, they put the presents in plastic storage containers they had around the house and wrapped them in brown paper.

This is genius! not only are your packages more durable, but now we have two huge tubs that are like a whole other gift. We use them around here frequently. Boxes will most likely be bought and thrown away. With this method, you get less waste and more use!

I think it’s fabulous!
