Do you reuse your plastic bags, just throw them out, or prefer to not use plastic bags at all?
If you reuse them, in what ways do you reuse them?
I'm cheap so I use them as trash bag liners for a few small trash cans. They also can be used for packing materials.
We reuse them. We have a little fabric tube hanging in the utility room with an elastic opening at one end. We stuff the bags into the fabric tube for storage and then pull them out one by one as we need them. You can stuff bunches of them into the tube and just hang it on the wall. We try to avoid sending plastic bags to the landfill. WB
I am a fan of reusing......
plastic grocery bags are used for trash can liners in the bathroom
tortillia bags hold my cheeses, onions, peppers, and sandwhichs ( I double the thickness)
old bread bags hold homemade bread......I double these too
I have not bought 'sandwhich' bags or quart size plastic bags in months.
I reuse them and have plastic bags filled with plastic bags, just waiting for the right opportunity.
You can use them:
* around the house (line small garbage cans, hold muffins, organize rags),
* when running errands (bring them with you when shopping, as a make-shift rain bonnet, to hold your wet umbrella),
* outdoors (kneel on them to protect your pants, cover your car's side mirrors so that you don't have to scrape ice off in the morning),
* for pets (pick up after your dog, to throw away used kitty litter),
* for donations (library, food pantry, thrift store: they can all use extra plastic bags!)
* when traveling (to protect shoes, separate your dirty laundry from clean clothes).
For more ideas, I recently wrote a hub about 50 ways to reuse plastic bags: http://hubpages.com/hub/50-Uses-For-Plastic-Bags
we use our own bags. you can also recycle the plastic bags outside of most grocery stores. i think at giant they give you like 10cents off, or something like that, in gas points if you use the reusable cloth bags.

What do you use your plastic grocery bags for once you have your groceries home from the store?I try to recycle mine into crocheted rugs or "pooper scooper" bags. I'm curious, what do you do with yours?

Have you found an interesting reuse for plastic PET water bottles? Feel free to share it here.I know some people are filling them with dirt and using them to build walls in houses. Others are leaving them empty, but filling in around them with dirt to provide a decorative wall when the sun shines...
