Do you have extra reusable grocery bags laying around the house? Want to clear up the space they are taking? Try reinventing them with one of these seven creative uses for reusable grocery bags!
1: Use as a Backpack
Reusable bags make great backpacks for children of all ages – even up into college. For even more convenience, you can sew a small cloth pocket or two on the inside of the bag, so your child can store their pencils, erasers, and other small items. Decorate with gems or stickers for an individualized touch.
2: Redesign as a Baby Doll Carrier
This idea is great for the mom who just had another baby. Older siblings like to mimic mommy and daddy by taking care of their own baby. Just cut out small holes in the bottom of the bag and create a small U shape in the front. Voila! A baby doll carrier fit for any little mommy!
3: Diaper Bag
Reusable grocery bags make great diaper bags. They’re compact yet offer plenty of storage space. They are easy to wash, and obviously totally portable. Just pack with baby’s necessities and go! As an added bonus, reusable grocery bags are MUCH cheaper than modern diaper bags are, which can cost upwards of $50.
4: Organize Your Laundry
Reusable laundry bags can be used to organize your laundry both before and after it’s washed. Before, it can be used to separate darks, lights, whites, delicates, etc. for easy portability between bathrooms, bedrooms, and the laundry room. After, it can be separated by person. Each family member can get their own bag for clean laundry which can easily be toted to their rooms to be put away.
5: On-The-Go Snack Bag
If you have kids or spend a considerable time in your vehicle, you can use a reusable grocery bag as an on-the-go snack bag for your vehicle. The bag will keep items like water out of the direct sunlight, so they don’t get warm. Pack a few dry, healthy snacks like granola, crackers, or breakfast bars. Add a few water bottles, and you’ll always have something to snack on!
6: Arts & Crafts Bag
Use bags as neat little kits for your arts and crafts. Just place all the items you will need for a craft project into the bag. When you’re ready, all your supplies will be in one easy-to-find place, so you can get straight to the fun.
7: Use as Gift Bags
Using grocery bags as gift bags just makes sense. Not only will it fit most sized gifts, but it’s like another gift on its own. You’ll also be saving the environment from additional paper waste resulting from excessive wrapping paper or paper gift bag usage.
There are many creative ways you can utilize Custom Grocery Bags. Each time you use it for something that would have added to the landfills (such as with gift bags), you’re helping the environment even more!
