Uses for recycling Cereal Bags

Here are a few of the great ways you can reuse an empty cereal bag, that I have collected from all over the place!
1) Cut into squares and use to separate hamburger patties in a freezer bag for the freezer.
2)  Use as a shake and bake bag for chicken, potatoes, or anything messy.
3)  Use as an icing bag by filling with frosting, and cutting a small corner. Twist the top closed in your hand
4) Open  the cereal bag along one side and across bottom, lay flat and use as wax paper for chocolate candy making. ( I just did this a few minutes ago to drizzle melted white chocolate chips over popcorn, yummo!)
5) Open bag as above and use to roll out pie crusts or cookie doughs.
6) Use to press down your rice krispy treats in your pan.
7) Use to separate brownies, rice krispy treats, etc. in storage containers
8)Use in your food saver/seal a meal to store and seal leftovers
9)Take along in your diaper bag or car for storing dirty baby diapers till you can  toss them away.
10) Pooper scooper bags while walking the dog.
11)Store wet clothes/swim suits on the car trip home.
12) Cut a corner of the bag and use as a funnel
13) Use as a sandwich baggie for toting larger sandwiches/subs in a lunch box.


  1. Hi, just found your blog.... somehow?
    Really great ideas! I love these. Especially using cereal bags to press down rice krispie treats and as a piping bag! I usually use wax paper to press down my homemade granola bars. And the opening to a piping bag is never big enough.

    1. Thanks for your kind comments! I always turn to the wax liner bags before I use my wax paper. It's amazing how many things you can do with things you ordinarily throw away!

  2. I also just found your blog - and LOVE it! This is a brilliant idea! I never thought of reusing cereal bags. They just always went in the trash. Recently, I bought a cookbook called "Clara's Kitchen." Clara tells stories and shares recipes from growing up during the Great Depression. It's a wonderful book. Anyway, she talks about how they rarely threw things away but tried to repurpose what they had. This post reminds me of that, making do with the things you have instead of just throwing it out. Thanks so much for your ideas!

    1. I'm so glad you did find my Lisa! I would love that Clara's Kitchen cookbook, I'm gonna look for it! You'll never throw out a wax paper bag liner again once you realize you can do almost anything with them! Thanks for stopping by!
