101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

Little crochet dollies from bread bags... Not quite my style.

Keep one in your pocket at all times in case you find berries or mushrooms while you are out.

:bom: (1) Can be used for picking up doggie poop when out walking them,
(2)I always use bread bags for wraping lunch up in.
(3) Putting in side shoes boots to keep water out.
(4) ideal for storing tomatoes in for the fridge.
or when cakes you baked are cool wrap cakes in bread bags and store in biscuit tin.

:roll: jessie.

Ina I have started knitting you a sweater already! (and you'd certainly perspire in a plastic jumper)

I make my own bread so I don't have a bag just a bin to keep it in. I would probably us one to put my stuff in the freezer, like breadcrumbs if I had a bread bag.
If in doubt ~ use a hammer!
