Unintended consequences – shopping bags

Like many we avoid the throwaway plastic shopping bags but have been driven to use the large re-usable ones. But the law of unintended consequences has happened and we now use these reusable bags for so many things we wonder where they have been all our lives,

  • they are great to carry computer desktops. Much easier than by hand but check sizes first.
  • Can be used to carry flat screens as well. Obviously not old CRTs but not many of those left.
  • perfect for network cables and other odds and ends that can’t be carried easily
  • ad hoc toy containers or a solution to clear a desk
  • laundry bags both to and from the washer and onto the line
  • to take recycled bottles and plastic to the the recycling bins
  • wood carriers to bring in firewood

Oh and shopping.
