Green Organization Tip

I have been pretty good about converting to reusable shopping bags. I love my canvas ones that I take to the grocery store.  In addition to being friendlier to the environment and reducing waste, they hold more groceries, don't fall over, and allow me to take everything into the house in one trip without pinching my fingers.    

However, occasionally it happens that I didn't plan ahead or remember.  In that case, I always save the plastic and tuck them into little areas where I could give them a few extra uses.

Here is how I use my car's ashtray – as a storage area for these bags. Then its easy to collect car trash or recyclables, or loose items that need to go into the office or house. 

What alternative uses do you have for plastic bags?  Where do you keep them?

    This bag is a very basic bag that is kept closed with a magnetic snap. It’s a good size for carrying a few basics and it is lightweight so you don’t feel like you’re carrying a heavy bag, ever. Thanks for sharing this post so much.

    At our house we use plastic grocery sacks in our trash cans as liners. They can last up to a few months (depending on what is put in them) and prevent anything from leaking or sticking to the bag. We usually try to keep a few extras under our kitchen sink so they’re out of the way, but still handy when we need them.
