    I’m glad you are enjoying the content and my blog! I have noticed over time I have collected a lot of unused bags myself! I had a ton of plastic grocery bags from grocery shopping trips. I had two bags of plastic bags full, plus a fancy plastic bag holder full of them. I got tired of looking at the two plastic bags full of plastic bags and finally donated them to work. So now I’m down to my fancy plastic bag holder again.

  • Hey there, just found this blog and thought I’d leave a comment because I’m really enjoying the content!
    Regarding this post..would you believe if I told you taht from the list, the thing I had the most were lots of old backpacks? haha, well, at least I made some more room in my closet!
    Keep up the great work Kristy!
