Stash and Trash

We try to recycle plastic shopping bags that accumulate. I had the habit of hanging a plastic bag off of one the kitchen door handles, which was not popular with the better half. Here are two mods that my spouse sewed together for the AS: Plastic bag "Stuff Bag" and her trash bag holder creation hanging from the cabinent door. Her design provides for snaps (that she's pointing to) that we snap the back side of the bag between, and buttons on the outside for the bag handles. Bags pop in an out easily....a slick idea.

Thumbs up

Those pesky bags also make great insulation for a cooler bag, be surprised how many you can stuff into the bag to insulate stuff.

Use them a lot for Stream'n and fish'n.

Very clever!

We have a bag stasher inside the closet, use an over-door hook on one of the lower cabinets to hold them as they fill. They are messy, though, and sometimes get holes--a pain in the neck, but no space for a garbage can.

Find a need and fill it.

🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚
