Reuse Pet Food Bags For Household Waste

If you buy pet food, feed, or flour/sugar/salt in large bags, save those bags when empty. They are just the right size for a kitchen trash can and are very sturdy - more so than the plastic trash bags.

We usually empty 2 large bags a week that I recycle into trashcan liners. That is a savings of 104 trash bags a year, which amounts to several dollars. (In my area, at the store, a bag of 20 trash bags is $4.98).


I save smaller bags for the bedroom and kitchen wastebaskets.

We do the same! Also salt bags work well (de-icer or water softening). :)
