The plastic bags that bread comes in are easy to reuse. I keep a clean one by my sewing area to collect all the usable scraps and another for the too small to sew with pieces, saved for stuffing later. I also like to reuse them to pack my lunches, especially for those possibly leaky liquids.

I have a daily flip calendar on my desk. At the end of the year when I replace the old pages with the new, I clip the old ones together and use them as a note pad on my desk for miscellaneous notes, calls, numbers, whatever. It saves me from using new note pads!
Recycling is good - recycling before recycling is even better 224
It helps us save a lot of money with easy things like recycling our aluminum, glass and plastic. Reusing gently worn clothes found in consignment shops and reclaiming useful cheap items from garage and yard sales. It never ceases to amaze me what people will throw away or discard! It all adds up!
Reuse your ziplock bags until they can be used no more
I reuse any bags that I pack snacks in for myself. While I can't count on the kids to bring them back home, Hubby and I reuse them for our snacks. Give em a quick rinse and repack them for the next day when you get home. I bought a bulk box of ziplocks 18 months ago from Costco, have tons left!!
