Recycle your flour bags by reusing them to store your homemade baked goods (cookies, pastries, etc). I carefully open the bags to begin using the flour and when its finished, I reuse the bag. If I need the bag right away, I transfer the remaining flour into a container, tap out any excess flour left inside and refill with my baked goods. If cost effective at the time, I try to buy the small bags of flour when at the market as they work best for me especially when I am sharing cookies with family and friends. They don't have to worry about returning a container, just discard the bag.

Another great "recycle" container is waxed bags from cereals and crackers! I started saving them for popcorn, but of course they can be used for anything needing/wanting a sturdy bag-container. Just as they were meant for cereals, they keep items fresh. Fold closed, use clothespins or paper-clips (the big spring kind) to keep "sealed."
