Recycle your cereal box (bags) inserts. They come in very handy. Use them as freezer bags, storage bags, mini trash bags, or any other purpose that you would use a freezer or storage bag for. They are heavy duty, easy to see through, and best of all, they are FREE! Try it, you will like it!

Save your wax bags that your breakfast cereal comes in, they make great storage bags in the kitchen.
To save money buying freezer bags, I use the cereal bags inside the box. They are really good and can be washed and reused again.
I save the wax paper cereal bags that come in almost all boxed cereals for later use in the kitchen.
