Q: After two big baby showers, I have collected dozens of baby girl gift bags. I can't throw them away, but I will never be able to use them all, no matter how many friends and relatives have baby girls in the future! Are there any ideas out there for using them or good places to donate them that might have a need? I just can't bear to throw them all away, and many of them have parts that are not recyclable.
Sent by MarianneEditor: I have a closet full of these bags, too, so I can't wait to hear what ideas readers might have on this.
