Weekend Assignment: 11/10/2016

It's time for our weekend assignment ...

Are you ready ...

Here it is ...

Holiday gift giving season is just around the corner and it's time to check our gift wrapping supplies, more specifically Scotch tape/clear tape.

Who wants to get ready to wrap gifts only to discover that you don't have any clear tape ... not me!

So, do you have any clear gift wrapping type tape?

If so, do you have enough for all your gift wrapping needs?

If not, it's time to add it to your shopping list asap!

She looketh well to the ways of her household … Proverbs 31:27

A Working Pantry is more than just about food! It's about household items needed to keep my home running smoothly readily available when needed.  It's about keeping a gift trunk so that I'm ready for any gift giving occasion.  It's about a lifestyle.  It's about keeping my home and looking well to the ways of my household and it's about doing it all as frugally as possible.  I hope you enjoy what you read here.


  1. Found a great deal in a small shop nearby. They were getting rid of last years paper, so I grabbed a couple of rolls as well as some sticky tape. Earlier in the year I picked up some ribbon at an Op/thrift shop. I think I am right to go for gift wrapping this year.

    1. Jane, you sound like me. We are good to go for this year too! Way to go!!!!

  2. A good reminder! I have loads of packing tape, but hardly any "Scotch tape". I'll have to add it to my list! I have wrapping paper (although I will be purchasing some through my youngest two, as their school is selling for a fundraiser and it is almost time to replenish my supply) and gift tags. I don't usually use ribbon, but I do have some.

    1. Jenn, LOL ... I have been known to use clear packing tape cut into appropriate sizes for gift wrapping!

  3. We always buy up a good supply of gift bags, wrapping paper, tissue paper, bows, ribbon, etc. during the boxing day sales. We also reuse gift bags, boxes and tissue paper that are in good condition. They are nicely tucked away in a plastic tote ready when we are. As for tape, we have an office type tape dispenser and buy the refills at an office supply store. We find that cheaper than purchasing the disposable tape. It, too, is ready to go when we are!

    1. Rhonda, it is cheaper to us an office type tape dispenser. I've done that in the past! Thanks for the reminder!

  4. I checked for scotch tape and I have plenty. I was not sure because I have not looked
    in awhile. I have some in the wrapping dresser and some in a decor box with a lid.I also
    found matches, candle lighters, Elmers glue and sharpies in that box. Kind of a strange combo but storage is limited and the lid closes and looks pretty. When I was younger my step mom started a tradition. When you got a box or bag you would right your name on the bottom and the year. This encouraged saving boxes and it was fun to see who had it before you.

  5. I have a ton and also some glitter tape which I love! And Ive started wrapping so am off and running! Have a good weekend Patsy! xxx

  6. I recently found a huge stock of tape that I had put away and forgotten about which means I need to do better with storing my stockpile.

    I thought of another income idea today. We run all of our purchases through a Citibank Master Card which gives us 2% back on everything. We pay it in full each month or it would not be a money maker for us. We do not have a debit card. The only downside is upcharges for gas which we avoid by purchasing gas gift cards at a local grocery who gives fuel rewards so it makes it a double money maker. We average 20 to 30 dollars back each month. Today we purchased a new washing machine which will boost our cash back next month. We had saved up for the purchase so it will be paid in full when the bill comes.
