  • Thrifty Packing Materials

    The most thifty thing you can do is to reuse packing materials from packages you’ve recieved.  Storing these things however is not always possible for everyone.  Some have limited storage space.  That is why I thought I’d pass on this tip I heard today.  The post office actually recommends popped popcorn in place of packing peanuts.  I’m thinking you’d want to use air popped popcorn to avoid oil all over your box.  Popcorn is pretty cheap especially if you buy generic and it goes a long way.  And when it is done being packing material, the recipient can string it for their Christmas tree or feed it to the birds.
