Reuse Bread Bags For Lunches

I take the bread bags that I buy bread in and empty out all the crumbs and use them to pack my husband's sandwiches for work.

Reuse Bread Bags For Lunches

Great re-use idea! My mom actually uses them for all kinds of food, but lunches is a great universal use! A++ (04/09/2007)

Reuse Bread Bags For Lunches

Yes, that's a good idea to use for lunches. I don't know if the husband brings the bag home and it gets reused again, perhaps so....or he can just put all his lunch trash in it and dispose of that way.

I reuse bread and bun bags for various uses. One way I like to use is as a liner for my small homemade trash bin I keep near the sink. I cut an area out of an empty clean gal milk jug, leaving the handle and it makes a nice little garbage can. I wouldn't have to line it but that just keeps it cleaner.

I also use bread and bun bags as freezer bags. I might have the item to freeze first wrapped in plastic wrap or waxed paper and then set down in the bun bag and use a twist tie.

My mother in law used to save those bags and as she'd get one, she'd roll it around an empty paper towel tube and then put a couple rubberbands over to secure. When she'd need one, she'd just pull off the rubberband and grab one. They stayed organized and it didn't take up much room to store them. I seem to use mine as I have them empty so I don't usually store very many and just keep in my foil, food storage bag, etc drawer. (04/09/2007)

Reuse Bread Bags For Lunches

I re-use bread bags to store loaves of my homemade bread. I also store extra 5-lb. bags of sugar and flour in them. They just fit. (04/10/2007)
