And a little side story about tissue paper....
Back in the day when I worked for a mortgage company, my boss would always save all the tissue paper that would come in the office. So if we had a baby shower or a gift basket lined with tissue paper, she would go around collecting it. I asked her why and she said she recycled it and used it in gifts that she gave to others. I said "But it's yucky and all crinkled up!" and she said that she irons it!!!! 
I had never heard of that before but I tried it the next time I had received gifts with tissue paper in them. 

I just set my iron to it's lowest setting and ironed all my tissue paper then folded it neatly and placed it in my wrapping paper storage bag. I haven't needed to buy tissue paper in years thanks to that woman!! 
So don't throw it out!!! Iron it!
