These things are piling up and I have no real use for them, but I hate to just pitch them until I know that they are truly useless.

I very carefully pull the string out rather cut the bag itself...

What do you do with them when they are empty?

I use them as feed sacks for the cattle.

The local co-op charges a dollar for each sack.

Wall decor!

One of my LHBSs uses them as a curtain/door thing between the front room and the back area.

Depending on the sack, you could make a really cool lampshade out of that material.
