Reuse and repurpose plastic grocery bags.
As many times as I try and remember to take my reusable bags I still end up having a big pile of plastic grocery bags at home. Here are some ideas of what you can do with them:
- Garbage can liner
- Cat pan liner
- Car trash sacks for road trips
- Doggie clean up bags
- Garage sale customer bags
- Packing material
- Line paint trays
- Lunch bags
- Diaper pail liner
- Toiletries holder
Keep those glass jars.
I love glass jars of any shape or form and I almost never throw them away. I reuse the smaller ones for my homemade mixes, I store spices in them, I store dehydrated food in them, I store craft items in them, I use them to hold grease until I can dump it out. They just have so many uses! Some are even the perfect shape to keep for “tupperware containers” and since we store all our food in some kind of glass or Pryex container, this can be a real money saver since glass containers are much more expensive than plastic.
Stick with it!
We’ve made it to the end of 15 weeks of learning even more ways to save money. What’s the most important way to save money out of all the tips I’ve written? To stick with it. Line drying once isn’t going to save you a whole lot in the big picture, line or rack drying for a year? That will cut a significant amount off your bill. If we are going to keep saving money we will have to stick with these money saving tips for a while. I know you can do it!
How do you reuse grocery bags? Do you save glass jars?
