    I’ve started making my own produce bags out of old shirts that I cut into bags. No more plastic for produce at the grocery store for me.

    I use my recyclable bags at 2 grocery stores but now may be using them at 2 more. Trader Joe's gives sturdy paper handled bags that I've been using in the recycle bin for paper & cardboard, the cat plays in paper bags, I turn them inside out for shipping packages on occasion.

    We started using our saddest, most worn out reusable bags to grow potatoes about 3 years ago when I had too many potato starts and not enough of the burlap bags I had been using. They are so convenient, and the tears and holes make them perfect for growing potatoes! I can shift them from place to place in the garden using the handles. At the end of the season I turn them inside out - tada! Instant (almost) potato harvest. We let the remaining dirt dry, slosh them in a bucket of water, hang to dry in the sun and they are ready to be stored until next spring. I've been using some of them for 3 years now. Eventually they will be too worn on the bottom to move around, but we can still plant them with potatoes and just leave them in one place.
    Another tip - when the bags are totally bottomless, cut the sides into squares that will fit in the bottom of your flower pots to keep the soil from washing out the hole in the bottom.
