Your grocer or vegetable vendor often delivers your order in paper bags. Well, what do you do after you have emptied the paper bag? Don’t tell me you simply put them in the bin because you can still use these paper bags in real innovative ways. Yes! With a little bit of creativity, these bags can actually end up being extremely useful in many different ways. Here is a look at some of the ways in which you can reuse old paper bags:
1. Dust off the out of season shoes using the disposal bags. This is an excellent way to keep your footwear protected from the excessive accumulation of dust and dirt that ultimately damages its shelf life.
2. Make decorative paper craft items. This is surely one of the most interesting ways to reuse old paper bags. For guidance, look up a few videos on the internet and you will be amazed at the various options. Even though this type of craftwork is not a permanent addition to the décor of the house, it is totally worth it!
3. Add-ons for your child’s toys. Use the disposal bag to create small parachutes for the toys and see how it brings a big smile on your toddler’s face. This is easy. All you need to do is cut a circle big enough, poke at four equally spaced points and attach it to the toy.
4. Use them as travel companion. The disposal bags can be a boon especially when you are travelling with kids. Therefore, storing a few in your glove compartment for that upcoming trip could be a great idea.
5. Safe storage. You can use the paper bags to store shoes. This will prevent the shoes from soiling the other clothes in your bag. Similarly, these bags can also be used to store all the fragile items like glasses, crockery, etc. Ideally, a layering of three to four bags provides sufficient padding.
6. Safety from frost bite. If you live in a place that has extreme winters, these bags can be used to protect your plants from frost bite. Simply cover the plants with a paper bag and tie the handle tightly to the base of the pot every night. Remember to remove it in the morning. You can also use this trick to protect the windscreen of your car when you park it outside at night.
