Years ago I found several shopping bags full of used wrapping paper in my parents' home. Some had been left over from big gifts that my brothers and I got as children. I spent some enjoyable hours sorting through it all, finding unusual papers from the 50s and 60s, and wrapping new gifts in them, decorating them with holly from the bush outside.
I sorted out the remaining scraps of used paper by size--small, medium, large--and now look forward each year to going to the family store of "antique" holiday paper to see what I can use for different size gifts. I haven't bought new paper in several years, and probably won't need to till 2020!
When I first told my siblings about my discovery, they rolled their eyes at me. When I showed them samples of the old paper and newly wrapped gifts, they were won over.
