Free Packing for Shipping

What's all that "trash" you ask? It's all the plastic from the newspaper, diaper packs, TP, paper towels, torn store bags, okay you get the idea.

I bag them up and use them for eBay packing for items such as this. They work AWESOME!!!! So much better than newspaper and cheaper than peanuts. Like I would ever buy packing peanuts, haha! Of course I love that fact that I'm reusing "trash".

In my pantry, I have 2 plastic bags hung. One is for "good" plastic bags. Bags with no holes, that would work for kitty box duty or trash can liners, etc. All other "trash" plastic goes in the other bag as long as it's clean (dry, no food!!).

I have yet to have an item broken in shipment and even get comments on my "great packing". I just toss the bags (bottom picture) in my eBay packing box in the garage. I use these faster that I can "make" them most of the time. And that includes reusing all of my mom's plastic as well!!

Even if you don't ship a lot, keep this in mind for when you do need to ship!

Be sure to read this post for ideas for free shipping boxes!!
