Do you recycle wrapping items for another time if they are still in good shape or toss everything???

I guess I recycle as in I put it out for recycling, I don't technically throw it away. But I don't reuse.

I recycle boxes and bags if they are salvageable.

This year I mostly just tossed awkward things into the tons of boxes we got from Amazon. Not pretty but it worked lol

I only recycle the gift bags and boxes.  The paper, bows and gift tags never make it. My kids tear them to shreds. I also have plenty of wrapping paper for next year. Dh bought me 3 huge rolls of Christmas Gift Wrap at BJs last year, and i still have alot left. Those huge 450 sq ft rolls usually last me 2 or 3 years, before I need to purchase more.  I also keep all the Christmas cards we recive. They come in handy when we run out of gift tags and I need to make them in order to lable gifts.  They also can be made into cute ornaments,and even picture frames.

The wrapping paper is usually destroyed from the way we open gifts so I toss it. I re-use gift bags and bows
