WFMW: Go Stuff This In Your Pants
Problem: Plastic shopping bags - we all want to save and re-use them, but they seem to multiply in the pantry.
Typical Solution: One of those cute hang-y things to store them in (nope - don't have one and won't ever get around to making one).
One of those mount-it-on-the-door-so-it's-always-in-your-way plastic contraptions (nope don't have one of those either).
My WFM Solution?
Years ago I pulled the pants out of give-away precisely for the purpose of rounding up all those pesky plastic bags - it works and it was a good re-use. On grocery day it's the kids' job to "Go Stuff This In Your Pants." The children also like to hear me tell them about the pants and how they were first Anna's and then Toby's, etc. I didn't really expect that part - I thought I was just being cheap and clever (ok and a little lazy). And hey - now it's "Green" and that's hip right (yeah right).
It might be weird, but then so am I.
