Ways to Save $: Store Bags

holding cloth bagUse grocery store bags to line trash cans: This may not work if you use a massive trash can but we use a small sized one for which the grocery bags are a perfect fit. This not only helps us save some money, but reduces our environmental foot print and avoids the kitchen from stinking from a huge overflowing trash can.

Do you do this?

Yep and as I had stated in my poll yesterday  about repurposing  I use them for so many other things too!!!

 I mostly recycle them at the grocery store and try to use my re-useable grocery bags for shopping.  I do keep some for daily scooping of the litter box.  They are the perfect size for that job.

We use grocery store bags to line trash cans as well as clean up dog poo and clean the litterbox...

We mostly use those bags for picking up dog poo, or in the car as little trash bags.

I do but I have so many I'm a little frightened. I may need to find another use for them!

I don't get the store bags. I use my own bags, so now. We use biodegradeable basket bags if we use them.

Yep. We use the bags in the smaller trash cans through out the house.
