Feed bags can be so useful.  This tote bag is perfect for holding all of my cow milking equipment.  I also used them to make large storage totes for under the sofa in our camper.  I just hung them on the fence to give them a quick scrub inside and out before I used them.  The fence was near a water spicket.  I used them inside out as I wanted my bags to be white.

What do you use them for?

My mother used the translucent white feed bags as mini tomato greenhouses for 50 years. They work brilliantly.

I'm not a fan of all the extra colour and printing on feed bags now. It reduces light transmission, and limits options. My 2c.

Since I now need to have as compact as possible possessions I now use feed bags as "pots" for my wannabe garden. That wannabe garden had a lot of experimenting which worked and didn't work for a productive garden. It was cool making dirt from pine straw/leaves and table scraps/coffee grounds, tho. and it was fun experimenting. Now I want more food from that endeavor! lol
