With Christmas just under two months away, an organized mom has started using Woolworths paper bags to wrap presents for her kids.
Marnie, from New South Wales, shared the idea with a popular Facebook group, revealing that she kept the 20c shopping bags after receiving her click-and-collect orders.
The idea is not only eco-friendly, but would also save parents money on luxury wrapping paper.

‘I have found a use for all the paper bags I get from Woolies click & collect! I put a red ribbon on them and they look beautiful,” Marnie wrote, sharing images to show how she reused the bag to wrap the gift.
First, she carefully unclipped the bag and laid it flat.
She wrapped the gift with the inside of the bag to make sure the Woolworths logo and branding were hidden.
One bag was enough to wrap the small gift, but larger gifts would require more than one paper bag.

The Facebook post quickly caught the attention of other parents who praised the clever idea and were eager to try it for themselves.
‘Love this!! I have piles of these paper bags, I’m stealing these,” one woman wrote.
“I’ve tried this and even got my daughter to paint it,” added another.
Others called the hack “genius.”
Last year, a Melbourne mom revealed how to “pack your Christmas presents like a pro,” whether they’re regular or irregular in shape.
Australian woman Chantel Mila shared two videos showing how to wrap your festive gifts, and millions said they’ll be trying her tricks this Christmas.
“Add a little cheer this year,” Mila captioned one of the clips showing her wrapping an iPhone and how to perfectly wrap any square or rectangular gift.
To wrap a regular-shaped gift, Chantel first said to get some wrapping paper, ideally plain brown paper because it looks classy.
Then measure the paper so that it covers the top of the gift, halfway down the bottom and across the sides.
Push the sides in to make two triangles, fold over a triangle and repeat on the other side.
Finally, fold the second triangles over the first set and secure the base of the gift with a flower or sticker to make it look pretty.
How do you wrap a gift with an irregular shape?
1. Fold your wrapping paper into a triptych and tape it.
2. Fold the bottom up, make a diamond and fold the bottom and top in.
3. Stick it together.
4. Place your gift in the container and seal the top.
5. Add a ribbon for decoration.
