It never occurred to me just how much I used paper and plastic grocery bags until they all disappeared due to my faithful use of my canvas grocery totes. I find myself getting a lot more creative in my search for trash bags. Here’s L’s inventory, inspired by our recent discussion about storing unwashable Ziplocs in the diaper bag:
I keep the plastic bags or wrapping from the jumbo diaper packs, bread or hamburger buns (just shake out the crumbs), grocery store fresh produce bags, newspaper bags, toilet paper and paper towel plastic packaging, wipes plastic wrapping if there are three or more wipes packages bound together, etc. You may need to open the toilet paper plastic wrap or diaper pack a bit more carefully in order to use it as a bag to wrap a diaper but it works. Just stash these plastic bags in your diaper bag and use them when you need to wrap up a #2 diaper or if you need a trash bag.
Worth keeping a load of these bags in the car to help speed trash collection (get your kid to stash all the trash each time you come home).
Any more trash bag sources we haven’t listed here?
