Every time you go grocery shopping you leave with a bunch of a plastic bags. How can you reuse plastic bags? We don’t want to throw them out, but we always end up collecting them until we just have so many.
Everyone and their momma uses them as trash bags. Or at least around here, they do. Plastic shopping bags make the perfect bathroom trash bag, but here are a few unusual ways you can reuse those plastic shopping bags.
How can you reuse plastic bags?
Sending or moving glass? Use the bags to make some cushion in the box. If you do this, the bags can get used at least three times. Once for your groceries, once for packing, and once for whatever you do after removing them from the box.
You can cut the bags and use them to weave dog mats, mats for homeless people, or mats to go under your outdoor mat for a little extra cushion.
You can use them to clean out the litter box, after your dog, and even to dispose of the baby diapers. Once you tie them, it helps eliminate the smell.
Donate them to your local food pantry or a thrift store like the Salvation Army. They always have uses for them. You can even donate them to school or daycares. They are always sending kids projects home in them.
In the car-
I fold them into little triangles and put them in my car. I can then pull them out for accidents the kids have, wet clothes, trash, and they are lifesavers for longer trips.
Don’t laugh but when it’s muddy or raining I tie them around my shoes to go to and from my car. It keeps the mud out of the house and the car. I have also put them over my head when it was raining.
Yes, I looked totally ridicules running into day car with a bag over my head but my hair was dry.
I send my hubby’s lunch in them because he is terrible at forgetting things and if he forgets the bag it’s no big deal.
Save them for your upcoming yard sale or if you have kids you can use them to deliver girl scout cookies or whatever they are saying.
You can save them by putting them inside of one and tying it, cutting a 2-liter bottle on the bottom and they pulled one and a time out of the tops, or you can buy a plastic bag holder.How can you reuse plastic bags?
