  • it depends on what was stored in it. if i had a piece of fruit then yes, but if it is something greasy and messy no i just toss it.

  • I don't. My stepmother does, and it seems like a big hassle for a small amount of savings.

  • I don't, I knew someone who did.
    I buy the cheapest kind the store has and use them sparingly.

  • You shouldn't. They aren't made for it and bacteria can get trapped whether you wash them or not. I haven't bought plastic bags in ages.

  • No, we might use a box or so a year at the most. We use a lot of glass containers and plastic containers for lunches and left overs.

  • Nope, they aren't designed for that. We use a lot of gladware instead.

  • I do wash and reuse them. I do not put food items in them but will use them for other things. I don't do it to save money but to try to save the enviroment a little.
