So, is it worth it?

So, is it worth it?

When I was growing up, my mother was somewhat frugal, so much that she reused plastic bags. She washed them when they had been used then hung them outside on the clothes line as if they were regular laundry items.

Because I was used to my mother’s habits, I once washed and hung a couple sandwich bags shortly after being married. My new wife looked at me like I was from another planet. Sure glad she didn’t say anything – she didn’t need to.

Not that there’s anything wrong with saving a penny, but do you use your sandwich bags more than once? How about the larger plastic bags, where there’s more to save and use again?

Talk among yourselves.
