Reuse Dry Cleaning Plastic as Trash Bag

I use the bags that cover the drycleaning for light duty trash bags, I just twist up the end that the hanger goes through and tie a knot in it, They're great for lightweight trash!

Or if there are small holes, I use mine for recycling. I don't have to separate glass from plastic from metal. It all goes in one bag and every two weeks I get quite a lot together. If I happen to have a dry cleaning bag, it gets used!

Anytime I get a large bag somewhere, I save it for trash of some sort: dry cleaning, yard mulch bags, pet food bags, large store bags, bags that covered a small appliance inside it's box, etc. And everytime I use one, I think of the change that I've just deposited into my IRA account. I truly believe that if you can a difference with the small stuff, you will be able to handle the big things better.

I thought I was the only one. I use them when recycling cans and bottles.
