    I use them for all sorts of stuff myself. I store stove ash and charcoal for sifting out the coal and then spread the ashes in the garden. I also store the charcoal in them until I’m ready to inoculate it for soil amendment. You can also fill them with charcoal and walk or drive over them to crush it nice and fine. A cut open bag makes a fair windshield blanket for snow / ice / frost. They also fill nicely with the split off chips from splitting wood to use for kindling. They also make a great seat cover for wet , snowy, icy conditions that comes right off for four wheelers and such. You can use them for catching the debris from cleaning out gutters. They make fair leaf collection bags too. They also can be used as a suitable mat for fiberglass repair or creation with a little preparation. Potato, or any kind of collection bags for harvest. Kids crafts like kite making. They are also pretty good for dragging around the garden collecting rocks.

    I’m sure I have several more but that’s all off the top of my head.

    I made a firewood carrier by laying 2 out flat and folding in the long edges to a width of about 20″, and angle fold the ends to taper for where the handles will attach. I took another bag and cut it in strips 5-6″ wide, folded those in half and braided them into handles and sewed across the ends to hold the braids still. It came out well. A household sewing machine can handle 4 layers of you go slow.

    Sturdy,lightweight, dries easily. Just don’t sit it near the wood stove. Just an intuitive thought.

    I also store my yet-to-be-ground, and then-ground biochar in them.
