Frugal Friday...a tip from me to you

I think that "frugal living" is something that I have done for so long, out of necessity, and the desire to be a good steward of what the Lord has blessed me with, that it is sometimes even difficult to decide what I do that others might not...

Does that make sense?

In thinking about a Frugal Friday post, I threw something away in the kitchen trash. 

There's my idea!!!

This may seem like a no-brainer to most of you, but I thought it was worth telling, in case it would help one person make a change!

I never buy trash bags for our house. 

For our under the kitchen sink trash, I use a paper grocery bag.  That's it!

Now, I know some of you, especially those in the South, don't have paper grocery bags! 

I feel for ya! 

When I first visited my sister after they moved to Florida, I was shocked that the stores didn't offer paper grocery bags....something about cockroaches loving to eat the glue????

Yuck!  I'm a northern girl...we don't deal with critters like where I come from!  LOL!

So, maybe others out there have a great frugal idea for a kitchen trash bag!  :)

For my bathroom trash (and the boys' rooms, when I remember...) I line the small trash can with a plastic bag.  Easy peasy to grab the bag and throw it away...no fuss...no mess!!!!

So, that is MY Frugal Friday tip....

I sure hope I haven't started a "you shouldn't use plastic bags" debate....  ;)
