Cloth gift bags for the win!

PAXbaby.com

As hard as we have tried to downsize the gift giving on big holidays, three presents seems to be our average amount per child. However when we are wrapping three presents for each of our children, that’s a LOT of wrapping! 7 kids x 3 gifts = 21 presents!!!! My mom had talked for years about converting to a cloth bag system which would save time, energy, and of course the environment, but since she is the only one who can sew proficiently, it took a while to get the project off the ground! She began by buying designer Christmas fabrics on sale after the holiday so our selection ranges from Michael Miller retro to Alexander Henry jingle girls to traditional holly and ivy prints by Moda. She fashioned a pattern based on a pillowcase and simply increased or decreased the ratio. We use mostly the pillowcase size bag followed by a smaller format (8×10.) For closure we tie a ribbon around the gathered end, and slide a tag on before tying a decorative bow! Our tags were also made by my mom, PAXmommy Catherine; some were crafted from felt, and some in craft paper and laminated to last longer!

This cartoon is soooo hilarious and accurate.

Did you hire anyone to assist you after your birth? Which did you find the MOST helpful? Did you hire them for subsequent births, or only the first?
It is so funny how many “THINGS” we think we need with the first baby, then we actually give birth and find out what we reallllly need. Haha!

Diapers. Milk. Sling. Clothes. and HELP!

Who else abides by these rules when holiday shopping for their littles??
When you have a big family, shopping can become overwhelming, and EXPENSIVE!
Paring down the gifts to four each has helped SO much.

What are YOUR go-to shopping rules???
