Is there anything you reuse, such as plastic bags or containers, to save money?

I may reuse containers if they are able to be used. Even if they are for the animals or kid's toys. There are some items that I will wash and let DS play with in the tub (Coffee mate containers, Ketchup bottles, etc)

I've saved a bunch of wipes containers to use for art supplies. I also try to save glass jars from jellies/jams/etc to reuse for when I make my own butters or jams.

I re-use margarine type plastic containers for leftovers.

I always save my grocery bags and reuse them for all sorts of things. Not so much for other containers. I can't stand any extra clutter!

For wipes I ALWAYS re-use the plastic container and just buy the refils (until the container breaks or something, they don't do well being tossed down stairs LOL). We save 'poor man's tupperwear' (butter containers, sour cream containers etc), and the kids really like using those containers I got from the pebbles deal for cereal bowls.

I reuse the wipes containers, plastic shopping bags, and sturdy plastic containers (I use them for leftovers, art supplies, hair elastics, etc).
