Recycled Christmas: How to recycle your cards, wrapping paper & dinner!
I’m on a blog break over the Christmas period, so here’s one I prepared earlier! It’s my guide to having a ‘Recycled Christmas’ and features one of my favourite thrifty festive posts from the Maflingo archives. I’ve also included another thrifty Christmas tip, an infographic from InSinkErator, which lists 5 fabulous Christmas Dinner Leftover recipes.
Recycled Christmas cards & wrapping paper.
This is one of my favourite festive posts because it combines crafting with kids and thriftiness. Last year we had a great time making gift boxes, Christmas tree decorations, bookmarks and gift tags from recycled greetings cards and wrapping paper, so hopefully you will too!

5 awesome Christmas dinner leftover recipe ideas.
The only thing more stressful than having to prepare a Christmas meal, is dealing with the inevitable clean-up operation that follows. Every year, you’ve eaten well and just want to get on with enjoying your presents, but for the mountain of food that demands your attention. Some of it can be put away for later, but few fridges are prepared to cope with the sheer volume that needs dealing with. Therefore, a little prep work can go a long way towards a stress-free post-lunchtime on Christmas Day.
The folks at InSinkErator, (the world’s largest manufacturer of food waste disposal units), hate waste. They think it’s a great shame to see any part of the meal you worked so hard to make get tossed away unceremoniously. That’s why they’ve created this handy Infographic, listing 5 Christmas dinner leftover recipe ideas. Why not try some of the recipes and make the most of your leftovers?
