Reuse Plastic Grocery Bags


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

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 been doing this for years! I can't even tell you the last time I bought garbage bags at all!

    I do the same thing. It saves money and helps the environment.

    I've been reusing the grocery bags in my bedroom & bathroom trash cans for years, and recyling most of the others at the store :)

    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.

    I use the ones that are too small for regular garbage in the bathroom container. emoticon
