Dear Heloise: Thank you for printing my hint about the plastic bags that sheets and stuff come in. I am going to put it in my scrapbook. I mentioned that these bags make excellent travel bags for sample-size items. Someone wrote to you and said that they loved this hint and use it all the time now – that made my day.
Well, I’ve figured out more uses for these plastic bags (the bags that sheets, curtains, pillowcases, etc., come in, usually with a zipper or snap). Just having had a baby, I have found the medium-size ones good for storing diapers, another bag for used diapers, and another for dirty outfits or other baby items.
Keep up the good work, and thanks for your service to the community. – Bianca C. Brindley, Huntsville, Ala.
