Here’s a great tip for you folks: you can use Ikea bags for so many things. They are so durable. Water doesn’t damage them, sharp things have a hard time cutting through them and ruin them. The straps break much more easily than the bag portion. The bag is made of tarp material while the straps are fabric.

I have used these bags to haul away scrap tile and concrete. Now I am using them to haul soil. Most of the soil is wet and full of worms. I am fairly certain that these will keep and the dirt will all mulch over the next while before I move. The plan is to use this soil for raised bed gardens at the next place.

Next time you’re at Ikea, consider these inexpensive bags, that may prove invaluable to you.
