We just got some new twin sheets for our toddler son's bed (who is potty training - woo!). If you've ever bought linens of any kind, you know they usually come in those heavy duty, clear plastic bags with zippers. I've always hated throwing those away. I mean, a bag with a zipper? How useful!
Following my creative instincts, I've found a few ways to reuse those nifty bags. Here are some of those ideas:
*Storing toiletries for a trip. If they leak, who cares? The bag was free! Not to mention, the bag is washable.
*Random bottles. We have a myriad of cold remedies, medicine bottles, cough drops, etc. So, I have one of these zipper bag wonders designated as "the medicine bag". It keeps all the little bottles and stuff together in one place. And since it's see through I can see what we have and don't have. You could do the same with make-up, nail polishes, or vitamins, etc.
*Office organizer. Keep your pencils, pens in order. Or any other kind of office supplies. Use your imagination!
I'm going to go through all our photos soon to dejunk and organize. I've been considering using those zippy bags to organize photos, but I'm sure the plastic off-gasses, so I don't know if that's a very good idea. Hmm...
