I am a complete project junkie! I always have a bazillion projects going between my needles and hooks. The problem is - as much as I LURVE my coveted Namaste Bags, they cannot hold 12 WIPs between the two of them (or they'd need to be the size of a small car). BUT, I don't want to just throw my projects on my shelves. I live in the country. We have bugs (moths) and dust! (I think it's a bad sign when you've started naming your dust bunnies.) So I like to pop my projects in clear plastic bags. I was using a lot of Ziploc bags, when I realized that unless I BUY the large ones, my bigger projects and all of the supplies I need for that project are not going to fit in the bag. And since I am frugal (more money for yarn that way), I've started recycling comforter and bedding bags.
Here's whatcha do. Everytime you or a family member buys bedding (sheet sets, comforters, or even slipcovers), save the plastic zipper bag. They make AMAZING project bags. PLUS - most of them are square on the bottom - so they sit really nicely on a shelf until you're ready to grab your project and go. (They also sit nicely on the floor to knit or crochet out of.) Many dept stores ditch these bags after setting up a display. Ask your local retailer if they'll save them for you. It's a great way to recycle. The bags are heavy enough that they won't rip. So you can use them over and over and over again.
