Feel free to contact me:

With 6 happy kids, life can be really fun around here! This blog is dedicated to the joys and sometimes chaos of having a large family. Okay, so it's always chaos around here, but fortunately, it's almost always fun, too!

Here's a tip on spending less on gift wrap for lots of presents.

I always get one huge, lovely roll of wrap from Costco. This will last me at least three years. They sell the thick, nice wrap in 750 sq ft packages. Then I get a bunch of little rolls - AFTER Christmas, and save it in the closet.

I make sure to get gold, green, red paper - solid colors that I can also use for birthdays.

I end up spending less on paper, but having more variety and nicer paper this way.

For sending gifts to relatives, I usually use rolls of white paper from Office Depot - and let the children paint on it, or decorate it with ribbons, sequins, feathers, etc.

The relatives LOVE their "homemade" paper!

Catch a choir performance!
