Sorting supermarket trolleys................ pfffffffffffffttt. :wtf: :lol:

Someone gets paid to do that. It may not be much of a job, but it's a job.

Get a life chaps!

You'll be able to devote more time to washing bags. :wink:

Nobody else (but me) does any shopping, cooking, washing up or cleaning here.

Perhaps I should explain the washing a little more. A lot of my bags are former sand and feed bags . I might use them for grass cuttings or soil both of which leave the bag dirty inside and I find that swilling them out in a butt of rainwater cleans them out which means they will be ok for other stuff.
The comment about sanitary towels on the line also strikes a chord. I don't wash them but when my daughter was a baby I did try taking the used nappies apart , the gel inside is the same as that used by gardeners and flower arrangers. I did give that up after a while though.
I do dry out used teabags too , not on the line as that would take forever to peg out but normally on a tray in the sun. I do this because I like to put the tea leaves in the compost but not the bags that contain plastics that don't rot down. Doesn't stop friends from saying I dry them out because I'm as tight as a duck's rear end.

Carrier bags ..........I have a whole bin bag full of these for when we need to put something in for a family member to take away with them. I've actually got a carrier bag holder from ikea that SWMBO wants put up in our house but I need to get a roundtoit


We have one of those, shifted with us through a couple of house moves, but it was never big enough. I now have a mail sack (courtesy of the postal service, ours is actualĺy Hong Kong Post in as new condition), these have four loops on top so they can be hung on hooks. Interestingly, since s/markets started charging for bags, we have more than ever as T3sco deliveries have a 20p flat charge but send you twenty of them, all different colours. We use them as pedal bin liners, will never run out, & on bin day will go for incineration not landfill.

Loads of the ikea things at car boot sales (& quite often, Round Tuits). But you never see mail sacks unless you have a friendly village postman.

Back on topic, I've been hoarding those useless bags of screws & plugs for years, they are going in the bin tomorrow. Probably sorted into metal for scrap & plastic for waste. I think that's called being a bit anal though.

The trouble is I will probably do the same as you :help:

I don't wash out carrier bags , but since a recent study concluded that people may be catching things from bacteria caused by food residue in re used carrier bags I think it's fair enough.

My father kept loads of bags ( actually this thread is making me think I'm turning or have turned into my father ) and when we cleared the house there were numerous carrier bags as well as the more useable rubble and potato sacks. Some of those carrier bags were unused and from now defunct supermarkets and found their way onto eBay . Didn't make a fortune but something for nothing :thumbright:

:oops: ah yes I see you are right . It must be thinking of the next batch of bags to wash out along with some stone chipping some that also need a wash too. :thumbright:

Or if you want real deja vu you could just have a signature full of "good advice" that takes up half a page every time you post. . . :lol:
