16 Ways to Reuse Plastic Bags

We're sure that if your parents were anything like ours, you most definitely know the value of a plastic grocery bag. This week's Frugal Friday talks about reusing plastic bags!

Yes, we all know someone - or ARE that someone - that has a bag full of bags stashed somewhere underneath our kitchen sink or in a closet. And, we think it's safe to say that we've all see the meme's out there about being "high class" enough to use them as bathroom garbage bags. But one thing's for sure.... the meme's aren't wrong! Reusing plastic grocery bags as trash can liners is one of the best and most cost affordable options out there!

Ways to Reuse Plastic Bags

    1. They can be used as trash can liners.
    2. Slip them into boots to keep you or your little ones feet dry.
    3. Store out grown clothes in to take to the thrift store.
    4. Send your child's lunch to school in.
    5. Pick up dog poop.
    6. Line the cat box.
    7. Empty the vacuum cleaner.
    8. Protect your plants from frost or cold.
    9. Line a paint tray.
    10. Keep your side mirrors ice-free by wrapping your car mirrors with plastic grocery bags.
    11. Use to store wet clothes when going to the pool.
    12. A travel hamper for dirty clothing when traveling.
    13. Wrap your muddy shoes in them so you don't track mud in the house.
    14. Make-shift shower cap if you don't have any caps on hand.
    15. Create craft projects with them. Make coasters, bags, jump ropes, décor, etc.
    16. Use for packaging filler.

There are hundreds of uses for them, which makes plastic bags a frugal necessity! And, if the plastic bags just aren't your thing, there's something even more reusable and better for the environment. Reusable cloth or fabric grocery bags. Either way, they both serve a common purpose - to haul things from one place to the other.
