Laura’s Cheap Trick #10

Reuse those sandwich bags!

Sounds logical and easy enough…but we don’t do it.  It’s not in our nature..we have to be cool, casual and nonchalant and toss out the baggies.  Shame on you.  Unless that baggie was good and soiled, bring them home, rinse them out and reuse them.  Chop sticks make great baggie holders to help dry them faster.

Don’t stop there.  Save your old bread bag cut it in half and knot the bottom of the second half and you have two bags you can us.  Reuse the fruit or vegetable bag you had toget at the supermarket. 

I tell my kids bring them home and let me decide if they are going to be reused.  We can make one box of sandwich baggies last an entire year.  (And that is for 4 of us bringing lunches to school or work)

Don’t stop there use reusable plastic containers to hold your lunch items.
