Thanks for your hints. It's been great reading about all of the ways we can use the plastic bags. And...I love the idea of nice shopping bag since it's something we can use over and over again. Thanks for stopping by!

We use them for trash cans in the bathrooms as well. Other than that we use them to pop bottles and cans in them.
We also give them to the storehouse at church so they pack food in them to hand out to people.

I usually reuse my bags but I've been getting paper bags and recycling them. I also take my own bag to the market now and have them pack that for me.

I do use/recycle paper bags. Sometimes, when I am out of gift wrap, I cut and decorate the paper bags to use as gift wrap for kids - they love it! I also use the bags for wrapping up things I want to put away and mark on the bag the contents.

Usually, I take my large canvas tote to the store to use instead of getting new bags. I get a discount for using my own bag!

For groceries we have reusable bags but when we forget them or for the other stores we do reuse the plastic bags then recycle them.

We have reusable bags, but when we forget them and get a plastic bag, we reuse them.

I have a collection of bio cotton shopping bags that I use for groceries and I roll up one and keep in my purse when clothes shopping. I wash them with the sheets regularly. smile
