Did you know many stores give you cash back for BYOB — bringing your own bags? Though it’s only a couple of cents — it quickly adds up! In California, where I live, many cities have a ban on plastic bags so we’re saying good bye to this. We are being forced to BYOB or pay up.
Reusable bags can be pricey so I’m sharing a video to teach you how to make your own bags!
The video is by YouTube user LongHairDontCareLLC. Making your own bags doesn’t require many things. Just an old T-shirt, pencil, plate and a sewing machine (I don’t have one, but I’m using my moms!) Don’t have one also? Ask a neighbor or friend!
After you make your bags, make sure to stash them in your car and office so you always have them handy.
