Ever wonder what to do with those plastic bags(the kind that zip) that come with linens?
Use them to store packing material or gift basket filler material.
I had several of these bags and almost threw them away but instead used them to store my packing and basket materials. I used all but one which is great, less in the landfill and they are securely closed and easy to see since they are clear plastic. Plus, the plastic is more sturdy than a food bag such as a Zip-Lock so they hold up longer.
Gift basket filler in a bag that a blanket came in.
Popcorn styro peanuts in a bag that a comforter set came in.
