Thank you for your input.
...I like to overdo it.... on everything!
I guess since it's not a business but more of a hobby to keep me busy, I like to package everything the way I would like to receive them..overdone!

I generally do just the clear goodie bags from the dollar store. For larger orders, I use gift boxes I got on mark-down after the holidays. Or, when Hobby Lobby has seasonal items, I get their little gift boxes to use when people order seasonal items. I got some CUTE Valentine's ones for what amounted to a quarter a box. But, I only use the cute boxes if the order is at least 10 dollars. Otherwise, it's not worth the extra expense.
But, I don't make the big fancy bows cause they just don't sell around here. If those are what you're delivering, more packaging would fit into my "at least 10 dollars" thing, anyway!
