I don't know about you, but I can't bear to throw away those plastic bags that we get every time we go to the store. They are so handy for lots of things!
I keep them in a decorative tin in my kitchen. Then they are at hand when I need one.
I have read hints about using an old tissue box to store them. Just stuff them in the top and pull one out at a time.
I use these bags for:
Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without!

it is much less expensive when diapering a baby to use these bags to wrap the "stinky" ones in rather then the bags you can buy for this.
Just a quick story if you don't mind. While visiting my mother who was dying of cancer in FL, I was sitting in her hospital room with 4 plastic bags holding needlepoint, crocheting, knitting and embroidery, book and magazine.
She was conscious at one point and noticing all my bags (they were hard to miss) giggled and called me her bag lady. A cute moment that she and I shared, not to be forgotten.
Don't forgot those of us who walk our dogs and need them to clean up after our beloved pooches. We're always begging bags off other people because we run out (ha, ha, bad pun) regularly.
Stick your feet in them and then your shoes to prevent your feet from getting wet.
Did you know that in my grocery store, you return your used grocery bag during checkout, that I get discounted .05cents for using my own grocery bag?
Store clothes not presently needed in them.
Take them to the supermarket when shopping; in South Africa we pay for bags when we haven't brought our own.
Donate them to charity shops for customers to put their shopping in.
