It is to think of alternative ways to deal with the trash that is bound to pile up post the Christmas party. Here are four things that you could consider re-using even after Christmas:
a) Cardboard boxes: You are never too short of things that ought to be stored and hidden away from the guests who visit your home. Cardboard boxes (that were originally used to pack Christmas presents) could be used time-and-again.
b) Lights: You don't need to wait for Christmas to bring out the Christmas lights. Use them as a sign of celebration on any ocassion at your house.
c) Wine bottles: Reduce, reuse, recyle – is the motto of the world today. Wine bottles could be used to store other drinks or wine in the days to come as well.
d) Gift wrapping paper: You could even reuse Gift Wrapping Paper on several ocassions. Don't bother discarding them.
