I have quite the collection of plastic bags in a large plastic bag next to the fridge. I've discovered how to fold them so they are little triangles about 2" on all sides which takes up a lot less space. I use them to line my garbage pails. Every day, my newspaper comes in a plastic sleeve which I save for my neighbor who has a dog walking gig and she uses them to pick up after the dogs.
Actually I keep them in a storage box next to the fridge
YES!! how did you know? lol.. but they never told me what I'm supposed to do with them?
Yes all the way to the plastic bags. Apparrently 10 is the magical number. More than 10 is beyond utilitarian and steps into the realm of "trashy". Lol.
Not the plastic bags. They help me to develop strong ethics, values, morals. Teaching me the word of God. How to be a strong christian man.
My parents taught me to set my milk back away from the edge of the table so I don't knock it over with my elbow. I had to learn everything else on my own.
I keep the plastic bags in another plastic bag. One bagful is my limit. Oddly, they are very useful. My kitchen cutting board is a perfect fit in one bag, and another bag in the opposite direction to keep dust off. Ice cube trays are in a bag to keep them stacked. It's a dusty neighborhood, so anything that keeps dust off is welcome.
Dust is the price of fertile crop land. They plow the farms here four times a year. Arizona dust is so fine that the army buys it in cans to test dust-proof seals.
I recycle them.
