I don’t know about you, but I have a back pile of plastic shopping bags. Either from the grocery store or the mall, even last nights take out…I have a ton. But I don’t just trash them. I reuse them.
Here are the top 5 ways to reuse plastic shopping bags:
1- tiny trash liner for the bathroom, office, or car
2- doggy duty or a kitty litter liner
3- ice pack for those bumps and bruises
4- tomorrow’s lunch bag
5- package padding for all those holiday & birthday gifts

I appreciate it. I’m often telling my cashier that I’d rather bulk up my bags… With the way some of them bag, I can fit 5 “bags” worth of products into one plastic bag and 10 “bags” of stuff into one reusable bag. Its heavy, but it sure beats hauling around 10 doubled plastic bags with 2 items each… such waste! Having extra plastic bags around to pick up after my dog is nice, but vegetable bags from the grocery work just as well for that purpose.
