Ahhh mornings… blah! I’ll admit, I’m not a morning person. These days the mornings are especially hard as I wake super early and try to get out the door to work by 6AM. So painful! With mornings starting early and so much to accomplish, I often find myself eating on the run. My breakfast is usually eaten while driving to work, so I’m really loving belVita Breakfast Biscuits! They’re delicious and totally portable. belVita Breakfast Biscuits provide nutritious, steady energy all morning long. They contain no corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, artificial flavors or artificial sweeteners. Pair these yummy biscuits with yogurt, fruit, and coffee and you have a perfect, well-rounded breakfast!
I love the crunchy belVita Breakfast biscuits, especially the blueberry! But the Soft Baked variety is also super good.
I picked up several boxes of belVita at Target and have them on hand to grab whenever needed.
Since I’m usually munching on breakfast or a snack in the car, I have a real problem figuring out what to do with the trash I make. There’s always a collection of drink containers in every cup holder and my four year old thinks her trash can just be tossed on the floor. To help contain the mess I decided to make reusable trash bags to keep in the car. Being an only semi-crafty person, these needed to be super simple and cheap to make. I nailed it! My bags cost about $2.50 each and 20 minutes to make (excluding drying time).
Look for supplies in the craft section at your local super center type store. I found ribbon on clearance for $.50 and perfectly sized pieces of fabric for $1 each.
How to Make No Sew Reusable Car Trash Bags
- 2 pieces of fabric measuring about 22×18 inches
- Fabric glue
- 1 yard ribbon
Lay the two pieces of fabric on top of each other with the print side in so that the back side of the fabric is facing out. Trim the edges of the fabric to be even if they are not already.
Use fabric glue to glue three of the sides of the fabric together. Allow to dry completely before moving on to step 3.
Turn the fabric right side out so that the outside is now facing out (it looks like a pillow case). Fold in about 1/2 inch of fabric along the edged of the open side. Glue the whole open edge shut. Allow the glue to dry completely before moving on to step 4.
Iron the fabric to remove wrinkles and flatten the whole piece. Fold the top 4 inches of the fabric over lengthwise:
Fold the fabric in half width wise:
Place the ribbon under the top fold and glue into place with fabric glue.
Glue the bottom and side openings shut with fabric glue.
Allow the whole bag to dry completely before using.
The ribbon can be used to hang your bag anywhere in your car to collect trash as needed. Place a plastic bag inside the fabric bag to protect it and make trash removal even easier. I found small trash receptacle size trash bags that are pink and scented. They’re perfect for these reusable bags and bonus… they smell nice and are like a little air freshener for your car!
I have my trash bag right next to the passenger seat:
The adorable pink trash bag is for my daughter. I tied it to the head rest in front of her car seat. It’s easy for her to reach and put her trash in the bag instead of on the floor.
These bags could be useful for many purposes around your home such as for small toys, used tissue trash bag next to your bed when sick, small items when traveling, and more!
