What do you think of re-gifting? Shocker!!

What do you all think of re-gifting? I know, I know, it’s a shocker to even say the word in public, but I know that many of us do it, and I’d like to know what you have to say about it.

My opinion? Take a guess. I’m a professional organizer for goodness sakes! I can’t stand clutter! And if someone else can enjoy what I’ve received that I don’t have use for, why not?

Is that crass? You tell me. If you think re-gifting is a sin, consider this tip.

Buy several gift cards for emergency gifts you forgot about, last minute birthday party invites, and quick dinner party gifts. They don’t need to have a lot of money on them, even a $5 Starbucks gift card will be an effective thank you gift.

The benefits of having an assortment of gift cards on hand is that they won’t take up too much space in your home, you don’t need to shop forever to find gifts that are priced low enough without looking “cheap-y”, and they are extremely handy.

So, if you are determined to keep a gift closet and not let it get too out of hand, either gift and regift or if you feel like that is a cardinal sin, buy several gift cards and keep them for when you need ’em. You’ll be glad you did!
