  • Yes...when picking up scraps of trash, juice boxes, wrappers in the kitchen area--apparently the trash can is too far away for my kids! LOL My husband uses them to bring his lunch to work in.

  • I take back the plastic bags to the grocery stores and put them in the recycling bins.

  • I've been weaning myself off using the plastic bags, buying the reusable ones. When I do get bags, I use them for smelly diapers, wet clothes (pool), cleaning out the vacuum, etc.

  • I reuse the bags for waset basket bags. I have a puppy who isn't quite potty trained yet, I used them as a glove to pick up the poop and the pee-pee paper towels and throw them out. I also use them when my 2 year old has a VERY bad diaper. Toss it in there, tie a big knot, and throw it outside. Also, when we go camping, wet clothes go in them. My Husband and I like to shop at Save-A-Lot, and they do not give grocery bags (not for free anyway) so we usually just bring a handfull of them and reuse them for that shopping too!!

  • Absolutely, I use them for the trash in the bathrooms and for when I run out of kitchen bags as well as for when I am cleaning up around the house.
