I recently bought the kids flannel sheets for their beds. They come packaged in those clear, plastic bags with the zippers. Sometimes those bags also house curtain panels and other linens. I usually keep them for my mom who is very crafty. She can store her quilts or crocheting in them. As I went to put these two in the recycling I thought to myself, “There has to be more that I can do with these bags.” So I did what I do best and I researched. I came up with my own ideas on how to reuse the bags. I believe that they can actually come in quite handy even in day to day life.
Take a look at the video here:
Here is what I came up with…
Uses for plastic zippered bags include
~ store stacking or building blocks in them
~ use them to store linens (place a cloth with some pretty incense with it to keep them fresh smelling)
~ put off season clothing or accessories in them
~ for the crafty peeps store pieces of fabric
~ use them to store projects (Easy to grab and work on and keeps it all together)
~ store gift wrap, gift bags, tags, ribbons and tissue paper
~ store baby blankets and sentimental items
~ put it in your vehicle to house emergency supplies or toys
~ organize cords
~ use for toiletries when travelling
~ great for holiday decorations and ornaments to protect and keep them together
How could you use these handy bags? I would be interested to hear what you do with them!
