Find yourself with too many reusable bags in the cupboard? Perhaps you overdid the free bag give-aways at the last tradeshow? Maybe you just don’t need all 50 of those bags, and they’re cluttering up your space?

Echo Park resident Beth Zeigler (she’s the uber organizer who runs the local Bneato) has been collecting your extra reusable bags for a couple of months now at local drop-off points in Echo Park, Atwater Village, and Silver Lake. She plans on reusing the reusables by redistributing them (say that 10 times fast) for free on Saturday afternoon.

The idea being that people who just can’t afford to buy them, or maybe haven’t thought about using them, will have the opportunity to get free bags. “While many folks take reusable bags with them to shop at my local Vons and Trader Joe’s, I’d love to see more people getting excited about using them,” Beth said in a press release. And she’s got a TON of them to give out.

I’m pretty good about using them at the Farmers Market and even a clothing store, but perhaps Beth can convince the hubby to start carrying them?

Bneato is having another Organizing Bootcamp for the disorganized on Saturday, June 12 from 2:30-4:00 pm.

The Bootcamp is designed for those who don’t have the time to organize by themselves, can’t afford to hire a professional organizer but need one, and just want a better understanding of organizing and filing. From Bneato owner and Professional Organizer Beth Zeigler:

Scheduling time to organize is half the battle. But once you finally set aside time to get organized you have no idea where to begin (not to mention being overwhelmed). Plus-rounding up supplies that the professionals use is a process of its own. Enter Bneato Organizing Boot Camp. The first of its kind, Boot Camp offers accountability, the trusted help of a pro and tips and tricks to help you reach your goals (all at a price you can afford). Participants bring their own disorganized paperwork to class by placing piles (or files) in a file box.

Email Beth to sign up, or check out the website.
