As my daughter, son-in-law and I wrapped Christmas presents we talked about quilting. My daughter talked about how I always saved the paper year after year and reused it when she was growing up. I told her as a single mother I did everything I could to save money and still make it look like we were doing OK. She said she didn't mind as a child and it became fun counting the years we had used the same paper year after year. I told her this not only saved money but it helped the environment. Christmas paper for the 70's and 80's was not environmentally friendly. Reusing it helped prevent some of the land fill problem.
