DIY Packing Material

In the heat of packing boxes today, I ran out of bubble wrap. Argh! I hate it when that happens. It’s almost as bad as not being able to squeeze out that last little drop of “Jubilee Green” paint from bottle when you are in the middle of painting a jewelry box or something!! Anyway, we don’t get the newspaper anymore and I absolutely have to go to the post office today. What’s a crafty chica to do?

I noticed one thing we do have a lot of are plastic grocery shopping bags. So I fiddled with them and stumbled across the BEST packing method EVER in the history of La Casa Murillo. I’m so proud and excited, I’m sharing the goods. Read on! If you do a lot of mailing for your business, this is a trick that will come in handy!

Step One: You take an otherwise boring, empty plastic grocery bag.

Step Two: Open it and tie the handles in a tight knot, so it is filled with air, kinda like a plastic pillow.

Step Three: Use it as packing material for your boxes! It is light weight and you can squish it however you need it. Awesome, no?
