Recycling To Save Your Dollars

Reuse your ziplock bags until they can be used no more

I reuse any bags that I pack snacks in for myself. While I can't count on the kids to bring them back home, Hubby and I reuse them for our snacks. Give em a quick rinse and repack them for the next day when you get home. I bought a bulk box of ziplocks 18 months ago from Costco, have tons left!!

    Trash pickup is once a week for me, so after I can't reuse them anymore, I wash them out & save them for use with trash. If I have something stinky like chicken or turkey wrappers, skin, etc to throw out, I put them in the ziplocs first and then inside my trash can, to keep the smell down until the trash comes.

    I do this too and wondered if others did as well! It really does save! Glad to hear I'm not alone.

    I always wash them with soapy water and rinse.
