While the holiday season offers a lot of festive joy in putting up holiday decor, shopping for Christmas presents, and baking cookies, it also offers up a lot of opportunites to spend money. So that means that by the time you've purchased the presents, wrapped them in tissue paper and wrapping paper, and send them off in a box, your wallet is probably shedding a tear.
Mailing Christmas gifts? Save money by using empty plastic soda or milk bottles as shipping containers. Stuff the item through the mouth or in a slit you cut; tape it shut, wrap it in mailing paper, stick on a label and postage, and it's good to go. Nifty!
