Default recycle grocery bags

I use the " sleeve " of my new umbrella ( which generally gets lost anyway ) to stuff grocery bags into and toss in the car, when I need a trash bag I slip one end of the grocery bag over my floor gear shifter and fluff the bag out on the passenger side, putting trash in as I need to. when its full, i pull through any car wash and toss out, putting a fresh one in its place.

That's a pretty nifty idea! We always keep an extra grocery bag or two in the little console between the front two seats in my van, but I like the idea of the umbrella "sleeve" as a holder...you are right, it generally gets lost anyway.

Plastic Bag Purse

I've always wanted to make one of those, but I guess I need to stay dedicated when I practice crocheting. LOL

This is a great idea! My car is always a complete disaster.

Maybe someone can tell me if the homemade laundry detergent is used for everything, or just work clothes and rugs/towels? I started making my first batch tonight after my husband went off to bed so he wouldn't think I've lost it. i can't beleve i just can't wait to gather another full load of laundry...
