Looking for Sustainability ideas

I thought I find a way to keep costs down while still trying to stay eco-friendly. Trying to keep striving for sustainability. This a record of that journey.

Sometimes blunt and straight forward then sometimes sarcastic

Eco Friendly wrapping

Furoshiki ("f'-ROHSH-kee".) is a Japanese folding technique. Furoshiki means "bath spread". It was first used in the public bathhouses in which the bathers tied up thier clothes to keep them together, so nothing can get lost. Here is a site that shows you many different wrapping techniques.  Much like the Korean bojagi or bo for short.  How fun is that? Material for someone who enjoys making crafts. A scarf for the fasionista on your list.

Baby blankets for the babies gift.  The parents will love it.  You can never have too many blankets.

The old stand by of the Sunday Morning comics for kids. They are colorful.
