I use them to line small wastebaskets instead of buying the liners by the roll or box. This saves my family a lot of money because we make a lot of trash.
I also keep at least one in each vehicle, especially when traveling with the kids. In our van, I hang one between the driver and passenger seats – just slip a handle over each arm rest, and voila! instant trash receptacle.
When packing suitcases, I slip several in a side pocket to be used for dirty laundry, or muddy shoes, or wet swimsuits . . . you get the idea.
I keep them under the kitchen sink in a larger bag. When the bag is full, it’s time to stop adding to the stash. Extras can be recycled. I have yet to deplete the stash, because each trip to the grocery store or Wal-Mart yields several new bags – free with every purchase.
I’m sure this isn’t a novel idea, but it works for me!
