Cereal Bags

Save money by recycling your cereal bags.  There are a couple ways to make those expensive boxes of cereal a little more thrift friendly.  One of them is to reuse the bag that holds the cereal.  It is a great substitute for wax paper.  When the cereal box is empty, remove the paper, cut it open, and either wash it or wipe it off with a clean towel.


Another option is to keep the bags to store crumbs from food items like cookies and crackers.  When the bag is half full, place it flat on the counter and crush all the items inside it with a rolling pin.  Use these crumbs as casserole toppers, or add them to cookie recipes.
