Recycle Wax Paper Bags

I was short a plastic storage container so I decided to try a washed out cereal wax paper bag.

Usually lettuce survives two days before it starts to either freeze or start drying up in my crisper. The lettuce stayed nice in the wax paper bag in the crisper for several days.

The last radish from my garden may also have set a new refrigerated vegetable record. Suffice it to say, it had started to sprout inside the wax paper bag in the crisper.

I planted it in one of my herb pots.

I have been saving a few of these bags ever since, using them to store everything from cookies to vegetables. Not only do they work well but they take up a lot less storage room, too!
