8 Ways to Give New Life to (What You Thought Was) Trash! …
It seems that every frugal person I know is into washing out and re-using their plastic baggies. I think the minute we decide to be more money-conscious we get a letter in the mail that says, “Just FYI, re-using plastic baggies will now be your ‘thing’.” So, as the good frugal person I am I, of course, wash and re-use my plastic baggies. Everything was going just fine until one day we had to buy a new box of plastic baggies. This made no sense since I should have at least 20 baggies that were ready to be re-used. I knew something was up. Was I not putting them back into the cabinet like I thought I was? Was an elf slipping in and stealing my baggies? Who’s got beef with my baggies? Turns out, my husband Aaron’s got beef with my plastic baggie habit and has been tossing my plastic baggies when I wasn’t looking! Raining on my frugal parade? Yes.
Turns out my constant stream of wet plastic baggies were really annoying him because they were never truly getting dry, and as he now puts it he says, “They were ripe for disease!” Since the plastic sticks together when they’re wet they were always a little damp on the inside. Enter my magic invention (and marriage saver), the plastic baggie dryer! Now, my plastic baggies are always dry and they have a place to hang so they don’t take up valuable dish rack dryer real-estate. First-world problems, I know.
