TMR Frugal Living Tip #49

Today's thrifty tip is to reuse and rewash food containers and plastic ziploc baggies. I'm sure you have read this tip before but it's such a great one. I never reuse anything that contained raw meat. I love those small plastic containers that deli meat comes in. My husband uses these to hold his bolts, screws, and nails. They are clear which makes it easier to see what is inside. They stack nicely. I also like to these for leftovers to give to other people. I never give out my Tupperware containers and use these instead. They make great containers to use for homemade goodies and treats.

I'm with you on this thrifty tip Bonnie :)

I think if everyone became more aware of just how wasteful we've become...well, the world would certainly be a better place.

I use plastic baggies for so many things! After I use them for apples slices and such for school lunches, I wash them and reuse them for everything from pony tail holders to extra shoelaces. Love your tips, byw...check them daily!

We're big on reusing plastic baggies. And I love your tip for using the plastic deli containers when giving guests leftovers to take home!

I also use the plastic deli containers meat comes in. When I cleaned out my mom's house, she also reused bread bags ~ she grew up on the Great Depression, and was an expert on recycling before it became popular~
