While it's important to give to others during the holidays, birthdays, and house parties, you also have the chance to give yourself a little something extra—freedom. The ability to move on from your overwhelming stack of reusable bags. The problem is that you have to be cunning about it because nobody else wants more damn totes either. Giving away the totes in a way that the recipient can't resist is necessary. Presenting them as a part of an otherwise generous gift is the best option.
I began giving out totes as gifts because I was short on packing supplies for the Christmas cookie tins I was shipping to relatives and friends. I resorted to my bursting bag of bags since I was out of paper packing material. A reusable tote bag filled with more reusable totes is something you also own. ( ).
Turns out, cookie tins don't slide around when you use totes. Precisely creased, or tightly wrapped around the primary gift, they appeared integrated into the parcel and served as a cushion during accidental spills. This year, use them to assist with shipping any holiday packages—ideally to a more devoted recipient. It's the recipient, not you, who is the monster who despises the planet if they choose to discard your old tote. Although using "nice"-looking reusable bags looks more convincing, you can also use the cheap ones from the corner store. Obviously, my purpose is not to pass judgment. ( ).
Use your remaining totes to pack any party supplies you may be bringing. Take advantage of the opportunity when you attend any work potlucks, Thanksgiving get-togethers, Christmas mixers, or New Year's Eve celebrations in the upcoming months. Carry your wine, liquor, food donations, ice bag, or anything else you don't want in a tote. The same goes for trips to visit family: Instead of bringing along bulky blue Ikea bags for your gift-giving, pack all of your wrapped presents in them before you arrive at the event and give your donation to the host with consideration. Just kindly hand over the entire bag without removing the contents. Those who are throwing parties shouldn't give up because they can use those extra totes to package leftovers for their guests to take home.
You know what to do. Do you usually bring your neighbors cakes or cookies during the holidays? Any tote can be made a little fancier by tying a ribbon around the handles. Tie a gift tag around the handles and write the host's name to further sell it. Now that you have your tote bag, buddy, you ought to be able to lose your holiday tote weight by January if you can manage it consistently.
