If you donate food to food pantries, they can always use your extra grocery bags, too - we're always running low at ours for clients, and having people donate helps keep our expenses down!

we use them for the small trash cans we have around the apartment. i also use them in my car, and when i bring supplies back and forth to classes. my roommate uses them when she brings food to work (she refuses to use the lunch box that i have).

we have reusable bags for the grocery store. but 85% of the time? i forget about them. and when i do my shopping, they sit at home and i end up with 10 more plastic grocery bags.

I don't recycle them, but I do reuse them for the most part.

I said no, but I guess I do, because I use them in my small trash can under the kitchen sink lol. So I guess I don't technically, but they are all used over again!

I don't recycle mine, but I re-use them. I re-use many of them for Zach's diapers- they're the perfect size to work as a trash bag for his trash can. I also use them as trash bags for my office and the bathrooms.

We've also used them again for art projects, etc.

The ones we don't use, we try to take back to the stores that collect them, but most of ours get used.

I don't recycle them traditionally, but I do use them again as trash bags.

I just saw this thread and tried to vote on the poll and was like wait how come I cant vote? LOL Then I looked at the dates and saw how old it was. Stupid spammers. Well I think my answer is still the same. I use the bags for all sorts of thing. When I go to Jo-Anne's fabric I buy their reusable bags for my stuff because they are so cute. I use them to keep my projects all together too (like right now I am making a queen sized blanket). All my yarn is all in one bag along with the needles and the blanket.

Sometimes I wish I could just throw them away - we have 5 garbage cans and will get a huge fine if we do not recycle (throw away plastic in misc garbage or paper in plastic)
