When shipping gifts, especially fragile ones, instead of packing peanuts, try rolled up sections of the newspaper. These rolls act as cushions when the box gets thrown around and keeps the gift from ever coming into contact with the outside of the box which can get other boxes smashed up against it in the shipping process.
Wads of paper work for less fragile gifts, but depending on how thick you make the wad, they can get flattened out with a lot of jostling. The rolls are a little more durable.
Plus, it's always fun to read a newspaper from a different part of the country....or world!
Until Next Time.....
