10 Uses for Zip-Up Sheet, Bedding, Comforter Plastic Bags

I love buying new bedding...from new sheets to a new mattress pad.  There's something about the crispness of new bed linens that brings me joy.  It's the little things sometimes.  And, what comes with the purchase of new bedding is a new zippered plastic bag!  What can I put in this one?  These bags are ideal for storing so many items because not only can you see what's in the bag, but you can also push and shove into a space to make it fit in a closet, a drawer, your trunk, wherever.  So, I've come up with a list of uses for these bags...if you have ideas, please comment below...
  1. CRAFTING ITEMS - the smaller pillowcase-sized bags are perfect for pencils, crayons, markers, paintbrushes, glue, duct tape and so much more.  Fabric, yarn, lace and more fit into the larger bags for your sewing, knitting, crochet, quilting and needlepoint projects.  I have a plethora of fabric scraps which I keep in a sheet-set-sized bag 'cause I can pile the fabric in and still see what's in there.
  2. CLOTHING - store your seasonal clothes in these bags - hosiery, sweaters, ski clothes, and more.  And, if you have small children, toss one of these bags in your trunk filled up with a clean change of clothes for that just-in-case surprise!  Change your child into the clean clothes and put the soiled clothes in the bag to take home and wash.  Later, you can then wash the bag or just wipe down with a Lysol wipe.
