Even when plastic grocery bags have a few holes or slits in them (say, from a run-in with the sharp corners of a cereal box), you can still put them to good use. Here’s a trio of possibilities:
· Crumple them up and use them as packing material when you store Christmas decorations or other breakables.
· Decorate for a party by cutting colorful bags into streamers. Start at the open end, and stop when you get to within 2 inches of the bottom. Then hang the bags from cord that you’ve strung on the wall, from porch pillars, or between trees.
· Use them as waterproof stuffing for homemade tub and pool toys, or for outdoor cushions.
