This is my tip for this week: Our newspapers are delivered in plastic bags everyday. I would usually just recycle them, but then I found a use for them. They are the perfect size/shape for tying up a dirty diaper. I’m not talking the everyday diaper but those that occur when you are visiting relatives or at an outdoor outing. In the past, I’ve used grocery sacks or the special scented bags they make for “dirty diapers on the go.” (My sister gave us some.)
So if you are out and about and need a place to seal off a dirty diaper, consider re-using those newspaper bags. They fit nicely in a zippered compartment of the diaper bag.
