almost no one re uses paper bags

I do, although I rarely can get them these days. Didn't yu grow up in the 50s/60s using paper bags for garbage? I did. But it's a continuing battle with my husband, who keeps throwing them away (I store them in the laundry room sink, which is rarely used as a sink) since he doesn't use them. Perhaps it's a gender issue ;-) He's bothered by bags in the sink.

We use paper bags to line the garbage bucket. The whole thing goes into the trash.

I try to avoid plastic bags, but the Countess sometimes forgets.
