Over the holidays, I had a truly minor epiphany.It started while I was wrapping presents. We've made it a point to buy wrapping paper with a high recycled content, which I really hate (it seems to tear every time it encounters the corner of a box). Mrs. R. uses paper gift bags sometimes -- the advantage being that no wrapping gets torn and the bag can be reused several times. The problem with paper gift bags is that after a relatively small number of uses, they start to look beat up. Hardly the packaging that says "best to you in this the happiest of seasons!"
