Try as you might, kids still get swamped with toys at every major life event. And while we were able to curb some of it this year, we're still swamped with lots and lots of packaging.
This one was the worst offender. It's a stationery set techincally, but offered stamps and stickers that would appeal to a budding artist who loves mommy's scrapbook supplies.
This is the amount of packaging it came in. It's about a 13x2x2 package, complete with clear plastic nestling its contents.
And these are the contents! Five notecard-sized pieces of paper, a few stamps, two tiny sheets of stickers, and a few other assorted items.
I'm not complaining about the contents because the recipient was thrilled; I just think the package is a waste!
