I reuse food packaging. I open up cardboard boxes (cracker and cereal) and save them for putting fresh baked cookies on to cool using the inside part of the box. The cardboard absorbs any fats. I also save the bags from the same boxes for freezing meats.
I also use them as frosting decorating bags by cutting off a small corner and inserting a decorating tip. These bags are super strong and work great, once used they can be tossed. I have done this for years with great results.

It's good to hear of others doing this. I also re-use the packets in cereal boxes especially for freezing things as they are thick and strong. I bake all our bread and these bags are often just the right size for the bread. I make 3 loaves at a time and keep them in the base of the fridge. (01/05/2010)
