I like this idea. I'd do it if the sign up/send dates work out for me.  Smiley

Count me in for sure. I've been itching to try to make reusable shopping bags from fused bags. And I've been staring at my stash that seems to have exploded over the past few weeks, and I have decided I am using 50% before I buy anymore. except for things like glue, and paint you know.. things that may dry up, or if my favorite yarn goes on sale, but thats it!  Well, then there is if I find a really good deal at the thrifts. And I'm a sucker for novelty fabric. But thats it! Well, then theres.. No, I won't mentally count wine corks, keyboard keys, bottle tops, etc in my stash.
But yes! I want to do this swap!

I want to try the fused plastic too! thrift store recons, reusable sandwich baggies, coupon book with coupons, stationary made from recycled books and such...all would keep us from buying stuff! I love how being thrifty also encourages us to by green

I agree, Casey1201!  Frugal often means green, too, which makes me happy. Smiley  I'm all for making this a 'use your stash swap', too.

I totally agree.  Being green and frugal go hand in hand!  Also, how about things like reusable "swiffer" pads and cloth napkins.  I also have been making alot of sandwich wraps and snack bags lately (SSS21 swap and Christmas gifts).

Those are great ideas!  Both can get expensive (especially the swiffer stuff) so handmade is reusable and frugal!

Yes! I love reusable stuff so I can save money, when are you thinking sign ups would start and send outs?
