I came up with this the other day, when I was hanging laundry out, and couldn't find my clothespin bucket. I had been wanting to get a clothespin bag to hang on the line. While I was hanging up laundry, I had a brainstorm. Watch out world!!Why not use a small tote bag. So that is what I did. Can you come up with another use for a totebag?Lets see if we can number them and see if we can up with 101 different ways to use those totes we have laying around the house. Let's try to number them to see how far we can get!!! I bet we will all learn something with this exercise.

OK - I saw clothespins and grocery bags. How about: 1- lunch totes, 2- holders for orphaned socks so you can find matches again, 3- coloring books and crayons for the kids or grands, 4- quick change items for the ladies among us who know JUST what I'm talking about, 5- small tools you tend to use the most often (screw driver, wrench, small hammer, pliers, etc.), 6- reading material for on the bus or work or doctor's office, 7- the makeup that won't fit in your purse, haircare items for after going to the gym or pool or beach, 8- a place for all the plastic bags you've accumulated that you use in the bathroom trash can, 9- needlecraft items (yarn, needles, small frames, small kits, etc.), or 10- a place to carry the other souvenirs you bought on the trip you got the tote bag on. Now - 89 more!!

Oops - it appears that, yet again, previewing doesn't help me a bit. Only final posting makes my mistakes stand out loud and clear. I have 11 ideas here. Haircare items listed with #7 would be the 11th, at this point. :::why me why me why me!!!::: he he he

I love the orphaned socks idea! I am always finding these! Great idea! I will start a bag for these and then come the start of school, whatever is still orphaned I will donate to school to use as erasers for "wipe off boards". My youngest always packs a bag for whenever we are running errands. I need to get her one started for the summer. She loves doing schoolwork in the summer, she is only going into the 2nd grade. LOL I like the plastic bag holder for the vehicles. This way they won't blow around. I am trying to eliminate the plastic bags but I honestly think they multiply in the cabinets. LOL Thanks for the response!

2. Use them to put together like toys for storing more neatly in toy boxes 3. Use them for carrying wet clothes from the gym to home 4. Use them for storing flip flops and other small shoes that clutter closet floors 5. Use them to store hand gardening tools 6. Use them to store valuables and them hang them unnoticed among clothes in a closet.

Yep, I try to do this. I keep them in the garage but I really need to put them in the vehicles, so that I have them at all times. I think this summer I am designating one for the library, also. That way the girl's book can make it in there without me having to track them down through the house. Thanks for the response.

~Throw one in your suit case to put dirty undies and socks while on vacation. ~Carry one on a nature walk with children, putting treasures in. Oops, I forgot to notice what number we are on before typing.
