Bag Question of the Day

Occasionally, we here at Tip O Day day, turn the tables and ask for your advice. Today, is such a day.

What are some good uses for all those hundreds of dozens of Wal-Mart/Kroger/Meijer/Publix bags you have on hand at any given time?

I hear recylcing plants pay good money for those.

I use them for smaller garbage cans around the house...then I can throw away gum in the smaller ones and it doesn't become a sticky situation!
The, there are the people with dogs. If you take your dog for a walk, those bags can really come in handy after the dog does it's business.
Third, living in Germany, those plastic bags aren't available when shopping on the economy, so I take one or two to the store with me and reuse them!

Now that I have a dog, they're used for Cheddar's indiscretions on a walk! They're also used when traveling to hold shoes (especially muddy ones) that need to be packed. I also always bring a bag or two with me on trips to hold "wet" things like bathing suits, towels, loofahs, etc.

Christine has a GREAT use for them too. She uses them in equine training as a "shag bag." Basically, you tie a Wal-Mart bag to the end of a stick, and when you shake the stick, the noise from the bag gets horses to pay attention.

Phil uses those bags as a car-trash bag so he doesn't get his car messy. Our cat is also afraid of them, so they make good kitty detouring devices.

You can cut the bottom out and use it as a tank top.

You could see through that.

Ha!

That is not even close to what I would have thought the definition of "shag bag" would be.

PLEASE, Cit-Grim, define it on Urban Dictionary how you'd define it. And then let me read it.
