    Hell no ! I can rarely find the wrapping paper wherever I put it last ! Plus I'm such a fine wrapper that you couldn't use any of mine anyway!

    No, but I'm wondering if we could compost it.

    Some can but most doesn't work so well. It's just got so much wax on it that it doesn't add to the pile that well.   Your better off just shredding it up for paper mulch base around plants.

    I've tried it.

    Just the really ugly, crumpled bits. I reuse that to wrap gifts for people who I actually don't like and wish I didn't have to buy gifts for.

    Nope.  Once a gift is opened in our home the wrapping paper is in pieces.  There is nothing left!

    No.  My aunt used to do that and it looked like more trouble than it's worth and plus I don't feel like storing paper to use next year.

    Nope. I never never ever save the wrappings.

    Mostly I guess because my mother (92 yrs old) is addicted to it. She has a whole attic full of used wrapping paper, plastic bags and pieces of string.

    I only use gift bags, they're more reusable.

    Reminds me of our Mam. She'd do that. I do if the paper is large enough and sufficiently undamaged, but I'm not obsessive about it.
