cheap gift wrap?

Newsbusters on Matt Lauer discussing plastic bags vs canvas bags on "Today":
He didn't mention the possibilities for reusing plastic or paper bags. He only suggested they could be brought back to the store. But they also make great home trash bags, sacks for carrying lunches, or even cheap gift wrap.
I, for one, am quite content that our media exhibits such an extreme liberal bias they don't even think about all the gift wrapping opportunities plastic "Thank You" bags provide.
