I’ve long suggested that preppers store several extra boxes of trash bags and even put a few in their bug out bags. Why? Because they’re so useful. In addition to storing garbage, which will quickly pile up in an SHTF scenario, there are dozens of survival hacks involving trash bags.
One of those hacks is making rope. People have asked me how to do this, and it’s a little difficult to explain. You don’t just twist them up. You have to cut the bag into strips, twist up those strips, then coil two strips together in the opposite direction.
