Save money on ice bags by using one of these thrift friendly substitutions if needed.  Use a plastic bag and fill it with a grain like rice or popcorn.  Then put the plastic bag in the freezer until it is cold.

 

It will be colder than a regular ice bag, so wrap a wash rag or piece of cloth around it when using it.
