Restore a bean bag to its original shape

Sometimes I have an idea so brilliant I wonder if it will be my last one. :-)

Do you have any bean bags in the house? Ones that are flat and really only good for sliding down the stairs?
Would you like them to look as fluffy and feel as soft as they did when you first bought them?

I did and I do!

But what to do about it? Well, I had another problem. You see, I live in an area that doesn't have recycling cans on the curbs. In fact, if I want to recycle, I have to drive AT LEAST 8 miles. Then I wonder, does my carbon print from driving 8 miles there and 8 miles back erase all my good intentions of recycling. So I end up with a large stash of plastic sacks from the grocery store.

So guess what I did? Yep. I fixed two problems in one afternoon. I took the old shopping bags, separated them out so they were fluffy and I stuffed them inside that pancake lookin' bean bag!

It worked wonderful. The bag has more shape, but it is still soft enough to plop on. My bags are out of the pantry and out of sight. And for a while, my two problems are solved.

There's still room in that bean bag so I'm thinking I have a few more trips to the store before the recycling problem becomes a problem again. Yeah!
