Frugal Fridays - Blanket Storage Tip

After two, yes two, entire days celebrating the glorious fourth, I'm pretty worn out today. As we are now going in to a stretch of time where Prince Charming will be gone for over a week, that is not a good thing. I need my energy back if I'm going to care for these three bundles of enthusiasm myself.

While I try to find my energy I'll share a quick frugal tip: when you buy (on sale!) or are given new sheets or blankets, always keep the clear plastic zipper bag they come in. 

These things come in handy for so many different things. I currently store our flannel sheets, extra blankets, quilts, our swim stuff (suits, towels), and extra towels in these bags. Our basement is very damp and the bags work quite well at keeping everything dry. If you don't buy new sheets/blankets you could always ask some friends or family to save the packaging for you when they buy them. Freecycle may be another option but the point is: do not throw these things away. 

And if you don't want them, send them to me. Just kidding, of course...
