MOM TIP: The mess begins as soon as the first present gets unwrapped and the paper goes flying at least in my house it does. Here is a great idea from Chica and Jo to help keep your present opening session mess controlled at least a little that is.
Wrap the sides of a BIG box with your pretty Christmas wrapping paper then set it near the tree. On Christmas morning, it’s so easy to toss all the trash inside of it. Much better than an ugly plastic bag would look. Be sure to save all the re-useable gift bags for future gift giving.
