    Could somebody tell me what I could do with all of my plastic sacks that I get from Wal-Mart, grocery stores,etc..
    I know I could return them or recycle,is there something else I could do with them?

    My elderly neighbor uses them as her garbage sack since she has little garbage. She takes our extras. I have seen people braid them into rugs for wiping wet feet on.

    I made a bag out of my plastic bags to put my newspapers in. If you do a search on Google, you will see many projects including some beautiful purses, etc.

    Here is a link to images, you can also search for directions:

    Check with your local charity groups, we have a group that crochets mats for the homeless out of them.
