Do you have bags full of shopping bags taking up valuable storage real estate in your home?  If you truly reuse these bags, take an empty tissue box and stuff full of bags.  Place box where you utilize the bags (such as on top of the litter box to clean out the stinky litter or under the bathroom sink for the bathroom trash).  Recycle the remaining bags.  Or if you're on the crafty side, why not try one of the super cool ideas from this site using plastic grocery bags as the basis for crafts.  To help keep bag clutter at bay, consider using reusable bags when shopping (or save a few of the plastic bags from your recycling bin.)  After all, according to the Wall Street Journal, the U.S. goes through 100 BILLION plastic bags per year and only about 3% are recycled.  

There is a plethora of information about cleaning out your winter guck and letting the spring sunshine into your home, so we're focusing on those little things around the house that will give you a more organized home and perhaps a bit more storage along the way.  Just 4 weeks, 5 tasks per week, around 10 minutes per task and VOILA! in around an hour a week the little things in life seem a bit more organized.
