Ok this is a very sneaky one. Watch out for the 'free' item given away with magazines. Generally these are a good buy and full size if not for yourself then for presents. My family/friends have oooh'd and aahh'd over their L'Occitance hand cream (normally at least £8) or Elemis cleanser (about £12 I believe) which have been cleverly packaged with maybe a little nail varnish and emery board or a little box of chocolates. Its up to you if you read the magazine, I have in the past when there's been a free listing on Ebay listed the magazine (as I bought it for the gift as soon as it came out) and made a couple of pounds back (I made sure the person buying knew it was just the magazine no 'free' gift). As for sending the magazine I generally cut up a thick carrier bag and wrap it in that! Recycling at its best.

Instead of paper napkins we use fabric napkins at the table. We also use a different type of napkin ring for each person, so that everyone knows which napkin belongs to them, so it doesn't have to be washed every time:D
Using paper napkins can work out quite costly.
