When you get items sent to you in Jiffy Bags do you keep those Jiffy bags and try to re-use them when you send out items to people? I try to if the Jify Bag is still in good condition and hasn't been written all over in black marker or something. It's not just about saving money, but also about trying to re-sue and re-cyle. I don't like the idea of all those Jiffy Bags just being thrown away into landfill sites, espeically as they are half made up of plastic that will take a long time to bio-degrade. So i try to re-use Jiffy Bags if i can, so that at elast one less will end up in a land fill site. Waht about you?

Oh I always use them. I never throw them out. I have a big bag filled with them.LOL They are great for putting cat litter in after youve scooped it.LOL I use them all the time for lots of different things. They are suppose to be getting rid of them. Then what will we do?

Ohh yes .. I have drawerfuls of them .. just waiting for the right sized goods to be sent out in them hehehe .. I stick some old wallpaper (plain side out) over the front if they have been used several times .. so I have a nice clean space to write the addess on .. I bought a job lot of cheap wallpaper once .. 10 rolls for £3 ... I use it for wrapping gifts, card making, you name it it's good for it .. and it's uber cheap !!

I hate throwing them out so I try to use them again, if they are too damaged then I try to find some use for them around the house. Depending on the size of them, they are nice to pack away glass items or small things that need a little extra padding.
