One more use for a plastic bag

Alex and Jami are all a flutter to have "invented" their own garbage cans for the car. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around the thrill that plastic shopping bags attached to car hooks has caused in our vehicle.

They'll eat their fruit chews and be like, "I don't need to hand you the wrapper, mom, I've got my own garbage." And let's not forget the joy when the windows are down and the bags flap wildly about. Now that beats the radio any day, right?

It's cute, I guess, because I'm always complaining what a pigsty our car is, and they are proactively trying to help. Gotta love that.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to keep Alex and Jami for the long haul.


  1. Fabulous...could they spend a hour training my 2? My husband always squeaks something about a clean car just runs better. Ya-Ya! Kara

  2. Yeah, they're probably keepers. Any kid who picks up after themself is a keeper in my book.

    By the way, how did the food industry get away with calling gummy chews "fruit snacks?" Like it's really fruit? Genius.

  3. Hi Marci, thanks for stopping by my blog! My kids have been using shopping bags for years for the back seat garbage, but mostly for big trips. Almost daily I can still find a tissue or candy wrapper stuffed in some corner that someone could have thrown away. Your kids are wonderful!

  4. I would do this, but...ummm.... I would surely miss "hunting the smell" and finding a week old apple core and/or banana peel stuck in a cup holder in the back of the van. To each his own I guess.
