    I love this idea and will be trying it myself. I too am tired of staring at the messy sack that keeps falling over. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I used to do this and also would use contact paper to make 'boxes' or 'bins' for the kids toys etc. when they were little.

    I also like to recycle my rags, T'shirts, old nightgowns etc......and make rugs out of them by either braiding them or crocheting them.....Nothing goes to waste here :)
