21 Survival Uses For Plastic Grocery Bags
There are countless everyday items that can be used for survival purposes, so it’s all right if you ignore many of them. However, there is one multipurpose item you definitely should not ignore. I’m talking about plastic grocery bags. The reason you shouldn’t ignore these is because you can get lots of them for free every time you go shopping! Why throw these bags in the trash when they could come in handy someday?
Plastic grocery bags can be used for things like making rope, providing insulation, marking a trail, keeping your gear dry, containing waste, collecting herbs, protecting your plants, and much more. In fact, next time you go shopping ask them to double bag your groceries because you can easily store hundreds of these bags in a very small space. You can use one of these bag organizers, or even a simple empty tissue box.
