I used to organize an effort by a local service club to wrap about 200 toys for children each Christmas. So I was always on the lookout for inexpensive wrapping paper. The less money we spent on paper meant more to use to buy toys.
One thing I learned from that experience was to check the square feet on a roll of wrapping paper before buying it. Sometimes, a lower price equals less paper.
One year, I grabbed several rolls of paper at $1 each and passed over the $1.50 rolls because of the price. But it turned out that the $1.50 rolls had 40 square feet of paper while the buck rolls had only half that.
Valu Home Centers’ weekly ad has 40 square feet of holiday gift wrap for just $1 through Saturday. To see the ad, go to http://valuhomecenters.com.
