    Okay, I had my laugh for the day. I am sitting here reading all the Mother posts, tears running down my cheeks, and I see this post and thought it said What to do with plastic slacks! I had to look to see why you would have purchased plastic slacks.
    I met a woman who crocheted the plastic BAGS into a tote bag. It was really nice.

    I found this earlier today about fusing the plastic bags into material to sew.

    Take your extras to Goodwill or other resale shops. They are always needing plastic bags. That's what I do with mine.

    I use a lot for cat litter cleaners. One of my cats is a lady-like white Persian who is so fussy, if her box isn't cleaned out twice a day, she'll look me straight in the eye and squat on the bathroom rug!
    And I'm now cutting some up and crocheting a rug for in front of the kitchen sink. I'm a messy cook and splash water all over the floor, then fell last week when I slipped in it. I'm thinking if I had two of them, I could wash one in the washer and let it dry outside while using the other.

    The WalMart store here has a big box for recycling your bags, if you care to bring them back to the store.

    Thanks for all the links!
    I usually just use them for small trash bags around the house, and such.
