Looking for a new, creative way to gift wrap? Next time you head to a designer store, check to see if they put your purchase into a fancy paper bag with the brand name on it. If they do, ask for a second bag. When you are ready to wrap the gift, cut up the bag into as much usable paper as possible. Then, wrap your gift making sure to expose the name of the store to give the gift that personal touch.

Don’t break the bank by over-spending on a Halloween costume. You can create one for your child with a pair of sweats and a few items around the house. For a bunny costume, use pink sweats with bought bunny ears, paint whiskers on the face and attach a puff for the tail. For a sheep costume, use black or white sweats with cotton balls attached.
