Frugal Tip - Reuse plastic grocery bags

If you are like me and haven't switched to the cloth bags yet, here are some ways to recycle those plastic bags.
  • Bring them to the beach/pool for bringing home wet suits and towels.
  • Line small trash cans with them.
  • Use them for kitty litter pans.
  • Save them and donate to food pantries or small second hand shops.
  • Keep a few in the car to do a quick car clean-up. (I started keeping one in the car for the kids to put their trash in and it has worked great!)
  • Crumple them up for cheap packing material.
  • Wrap your wet paintbrush or roller in a plastic bag while you take a break. It will keep the paint from drying out.
  • Keep a couple extra bags in your car or purse to wrap up your wet umbrella.
  • Keep one folded up in your purse for those times you have said to yourself, "I wish I had something to put this in!"
