Reuse Plastic Grocery Bags




I have small trash cans in the bathrooms, den, and living room. Instead of throwing away grocery plastic bags or taking them back to the store; I used them as trash can liners. They are just the right size for my small trash cans. Because the bags have handles make for quick throw away.

    I've done that for some time. If I used reusable bags all the time, I would have to buy small bags for the trash cans. I do use them for stores with larger bags. - by LILLIEBLUE613
