How to Reuse those Plastic Bags and Baggies

Do you have a stockpile of plastic shopping bags? There are many things that you can do with these bags. Consider these options:

  • They make great trash bags.
  • You can reuse them at the store. Our grocery store gives us .05 for every bag that we reuse.
  • You can take them to the grocery store (if yours participates) and put them in the recycling bin.
  • Use them to carry things that you are donating in.
  • Have your children use them to pack what they want to take with them when they are spending a night with a friend.
  • Use them when cleaning out litter boxes.
  • Use them as bags for dog bombs: Scoop the poop.

Do you have a stockpile of washed out sandwich, quart size and gallon size zipper bags? They can be used for:

  • You can use them when scooping out the litter box.
  • You can use them to store cards or other small games.
  • You can use them to put soap, toothbrushes and toothpast in when you are going to be away from home.
  • You can reuse them for food.
  • You can use them to store projects.

There are other types of plastic bags that are also useful when scooping out litter boxes:

  • Cereal box liner bags
  • Bread bags
  • Resealable bags that freezer food comes in.
  • English muffin bags
  • Produce bags

These make great trash bags:

  • Large plastic shopping bags
  • Zippered bags that comforters and such come in.
  • Compost/Dirt bags
  • Ice melt bags
  • The plastic from toilet paper and paper towel packages.

Do you have any other ideas for reusing bags? If so, please post them in the comments. Thank you.

  2. I saw one one instructables.com on how to weave a rug out of plastic grocery bags, which some women used to do with bread bags. It’s pretty cool and I think you can actually wash them.
