Popcorn? Ghost Poop a.k.a. packing peanuts? Newspaper? Grocery bags? Bubble Wrap? I've heard of lots of different materials that can be used to make sure your care package contents arrive safely and while they all have their place my favorite by far is Easter grass. Not the shredded plastic kind but the crinkly shredded paper kind. Not only does it help keep your items safe but it looks adorable! You can find crinkly shredded paper at any craft store and often in the gift wrap section of your local store but right now it's Easter and it's everywhere and CHEAP!! I picked up lots today and found it for $1.37 a bag at Walmart - they had yellow, green, orange, fuchsia, light pink, light blue, purple and white. You could wait until the weekend or maybe even pick some up on clearance the day after Easter...but I was worried they would be out and like I said, I need lots. Jeff hates the shredded plastic kind that has static cling in it and sticks to everything and won't come off your hand when you try to throw it away (maybe it's just my magnetic personality?) so I haven't bought any of that kind for a very long time. After the kids are finished opening their baskets this weekend you'll find me bagging up their shredded paper to use in an upcoming package.
What's your favorite packing material?
