No, I don't need any plastic bag with a weird accent blowing around after me, calling me his maker. The thing about those stalking plastic bags is that if they blow onto your face, you can't breathe.

They're good for picking up dog poo and to line small wastebaskets.

They also make great packing material when moving or shipping stuff.

I've seen people weave rugs out of them, not the kind bald guys wear.

There was an article on here not too long ago about a lady who wove them into reusable grocery/tote bags.

That's a great idea, but $40? They're made out of free plastic grocery bags!

My great grandma did that, but out of plastic bread sacks (in the 70s when most groceries only had paper bags). They were big and oval and I think she made them by using a big crochet hook. Everyone in the family had one inside of their front door to wipe your feet on. They were really colorful.

They weren't bags, they were floor mats/rugs.

FYI, checkers gives a ten cent bag refund for paper and cloth grocery bags. don't know of any other grocery stores that are that generous. Another reason I love checkers!

I never knew that and I've been shopping there for ages. They never mentioned at the checkout. I will next time though. Thanks

Ironically, I collect and pack my recycling in them.

We use them for the baby's dirty diapers.

barf bag - place one handle over each ear and let er loose! nice and tidy, avoids splatter and blow by.

I refuse to buy plastic trash bags just to throw them away so I use the shopping plastic bags as my trash bag as well as my bathroom trash can liner.

We use them for cat litter and lining small bathroom trash cans

I use them as a lunch bag, tote bag, trash can liner, for cat litter, in-car trash receptacle, packing material, and probably more things I can't recall at the moment. I wouldn't use paper grocery bags for any of these things.

We recycle them.... Does that count as reusing?
