Kristen's got a smart use for those nifty plastic bags in which new sheets come packaged:
I bought new sheets the other day, and I really didn't want to throw away that sturdy square plastic bag with the zipper that they came in but it couldn't be recycled. Then I realized it was a great storage bag for the playroom — it can hold lots of small pieces like Legos or Lincoln Logs, my kids can open it themselves, and you can stack another bag on top of it.
Also great for storing sweaters, table linens, dolls and their clothes, electrical and computer cords…
