|Big Bag: Economical But Awkward|
One of my first uses for them was as scrubbies, but I recently did better.
I like to buy onions in 50-pound bags. The unit price is so much better! This 50-pound bag was $5.99 and Pay N' Pack, which contrasts nicely with a price of about $1 each at an ordinary grocer, or if you're lucky 3 pounds for a dollar.
Onions are tasty and nutrious; with only a little cooking they add sweetness and fiber to stews, sauces and almost anything I cook in my cast iron pan.
But onions deserve respect in storage. There's not really a good place to keep them in my house.
I hauled out my little-mesh-bag collection and discovered that about 3 fit in them easily, and then I can hang them on the wall of my shed.

Economical and Handy!
And now, with the help of re-using those little bags, it's in my shed. I'm saving money while eating well and reducing, however slightly, my wastefulness. Cheers for us!
