Weird Green Dilemma: Too Many Reusable Bags ...

As the rain came down last weekend, we found ourselves marooned indoors. So we started a little early Spring/late Winter cleaning.

As we organized and started making piles of things to get rid of, we noticed something odd: What had started as a small pile of unused reusable tote bags, was growing into a large ... large pile.

We have way too many reusable bags. It's partially our fault for buying some of them, but it's also partially the fault of overly enthusiastic marketing people who've decided totes are the hot new thing to hand out at green (and non-green) events.

So we packed our totes up with our unwanted clothes and dropped them off at the thrift store. But we're wondering if there is a good charity that needs extra tote bags, or even an interesting craft project that makes good use of them? Know of any?

We can't imagine we're the only people with this "problem." Are we?
