Save laundry time, money and wear on towels by hanging them up to dry after baths and using two or three days. Washcloths are the only thing that really gets dirty when you bathe, so buy multi-packs at the dollar store for fresh washcloths for every shower and face wash.
Using a towel twice instead of once can cut laundry in half! You just need a towel rack for each person in the family. Color coding towels can help kids remember theirs. I've found washcloths at Dollar Genera for 18 for $4 so it's easy to keep a big supply, just toss in rag bag when they get worn.

While I use a glass around home, sometimes a disposable water bottle is just very convenient. However If I bring it back home with me, I refill it and use it at least 3 or 4 more times. I also love to reuse juice bottles for water to go. Conservation/Saving Money/Reusing.
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!!
Store plastice grocery bags in a used paper towel cardboard roll. Keep one in your car to collect wrappers on road trips. Reuse bags as liners for small trash cans. Knot dirty diapers in side to trap the smell. AND, they work well to pooper-scooper after Fido!
