Find of the Week:
It's not likely you're

If you're like me, you hate to
throw out reusable gift bags but what can you do with a bunch of
paper wine bottle bags? I mean, you don't gift someone with
a bottle of wine everyday. If you have a collection of these tall
paper gift bags, here's the answer. Just cut them down
to a shorter size (however tall or short you want), leaving about
an extra inch at the top to fold down on the inside
of the bag and use a one-hole punch to make holes for a ribbon or
decorative cord handle. Voila! A gift bag that's wider than your
average small gift bag and great for smaller gifts.

If kitchen walls could talk, they might retell some of the funny stories
they've heard around the family dinner table at night. They might
whisper secrets passed between siblings while they were doing
homework at the kitchen table in the evenings or they might justly
shout, “Hey, we feel naked!”
If your kitchen walls are looking a little bare, here are some easy-on-the-
budget ideas to help fill the empty spaces. Make them a jumping off point for ideas
of your own that will stamp your kitchen as uniquely yours.
